Of course, we love cake! Especially wedding cakes. A towering masterpiece of sugar has always been a traditional way to celebrate a wedding. In ancient Rome, a piece of cake was broken over the bride's head , then eaten by the bride and groom for good luck. In Medieval England, guests were asked to bring a small cake to the wedding celebration. The cakes were piled high and the bride and groom had to kiss over the top to guarantee their happy life together!

The cake is always the centerpiece of the event and can be as unique as the couple getting married. Dark chocolate, fresh fruit, flowers, sugar ribbons and more are all beautiful and tasty ways to deck out the cake. For some brides, cake might not be their favorite dessert.....there are other ways to celebrate beyond cake.  We are always happy to customize a dessert table for any occasion. Planning a dessert table is a challenge; mapping out all the plate placement ,baking samples, and portion counting can take months. It can be a daunting task. Tarts, pies, candies, petit fours and pastries can be more challenging than a 5 tier cake! When it all comes together, and looks great, the "oohs and ahhs" and "happily ever after" is all that ever matters.
