A New Adventure Begins...

When a bride and groom ask you to be a part of their wedding day, it is truly an honor. I was so thrilled when Ryan and Amy asked me to make their wedding cake and was even more excited when they told me what they were looking for. They decided to make their wedding cake a fun extension of themselves, highlighting their adventurous lifestyle together...traveling all over the world, sky diving, a honeymoon to Antarctica...this couple will literally go to the ends of the earth with each other!!

For their wedding cake, they decided they'd like an all white cake that looked like a mountain, with fondant figures of themselves in wedding gear mountain climbing up the side of the cake, where their adorable dog Casey was sitting, eating a bit of cake he had dug up from the top tier! AWESOME! I couldn't wait to get started...

The wedding, this past Saturday at the Prospect Park Boathouse in Brooklyn, turned out to be one of the most beautiful days NYC had this summer - the ceremony took place out on the deck overlooking a beautiful pond, and the reception took place in the long room inside - there was one long table to seat all the guests together, which was adorned with candles, beautiful china and gorgeous decorations made by the bride herself. Even Casey, their sweet little dog, was in attendance!

I had taken pictures of the cake myself, but was then contacted by the wedding photographer, Erica Lyn who mentioned she had some pictures of the cake and cake cutting on her site. She's given me permission to use her pictures here, and thank goodness, because her fantastic photography skills captured exactly how the cake looked in the beautiful room as well as the essence of the fun couple Ryan and Amy are - she's amazingly talented and I will be featuring her as a highly recommended photographer on my website!! Here are her pictures:

A huge thank you to Ryan and Amy for asking me to make their wedding cake - it was so much fun to work with them on the tasting (the cake was an amazingly delicious coconut cake with coconut frosting and nutella filling...mmmmmmm!!!) and the design. To have played a small part in their special day was truly an honor.

A huge thank you to Erica for allowing me to feature her beautiful shots here - be sure to check out her work on her website, blog and facebook!

Here are close up pictures of the fondant figures, taken by me (obviously!) They pale in comparison to Erica's gorgeous photographs! :)
