Wedding Cakes





I'm recovering today from making 7 cakes! I made these cakes for Mike Mckinley. He got married yesterday out at his gardens. Sam has been friends with him and also has been working for him on and off for about 6 years as a groundskeeper. I hope to go out there this week and get some pictures of his property. It is absolutely gorgeous. It's like a little getaway right here in Eau Claire. My mom and I had fun finding some milk glass platters to display the cakes on. Sam and I went around the gardens and picked flowers and raspberries to put on the cakes. I had fun doing "country style" cakes. Most of the ones I have done have been very elegant, so it was fun to do a different style. I made choc. cake, white cake, and carrot cake. It was this very time last year, when my good friends Jess and Jeff got married. Happy 1st anniversary you two!

Wow, what beautiful cakes. I'm sure that they tasted as good as they look. By the way are cupcakes huge in WI? Anything with cupcakes are starting to sprout up in CA.

I just happened upon your blog this afternoon...what a delightful treat! You are so crafty and thrifty! I wish I could sample your cakes...although I don't think Jenny Craig would be too happy!
