It Takes A Village...


Sometimes it takes a village to build a wedding dessert table. This beautiful wedding at the New Haven Lawn Club featured a pastel assortment of cakes displayed on vintage cake plates. The planning began last December with tastings, designs, color swatches and cake plate arranging.

The lovely couple wanted to echo a similar wedding cake buffet we designed last year. Same concept, but each bride was unique in their desire to create a cake experience through design, texture, and flavor.

By adding meringues, lemon squares and cream puffs to the buffet, guests could have all their sweet fantasies fulfilled.

The planning, baking, and cake decorating are almost incidental in this type of presentation. It all comes down to assembling the cakes on-site on the plates. Post-ceremony, pre-reception plating, piping, arranging.  The more staff I can bribe with after-delivery margaritas*, the better. Last minute details, no problem with this crew... romantic tulle on the table, votives and serving pieces in place, cake flavor placards, fabulous flowers from Blush Floral Design , and the groom's parent's original wedding cake ornament. Everything in place for happily ever after.
