A Tahoe Wedding

After what feels like endless rainy weekends,we finally had a beautiful, sunny weekend…just in time for a wedding in Lake Tahoe.

For this wedding, I created a three-tier cake (all almond with raspberry filling!), 100 cake pops and 100 chocolate-covered Oreos.

The flowers that this bride chose were just gorgeous and the cake topper was the cutest thing ever…that makes my job easy. Err…easier.

As I arrived at the outside venue with all of my goodies I was delighted to see that the dessert area was THE only place in the sun. Really? After putting all the cake pops out…putting all the cake pops back in the fridge (and losing a couple to the heat)…and then putting all the cake pops back out, I could finally take a breath.

And then something happened that I’ve never seen in my life. All of the cake pops and chocolate-covered Oreos were gone before dinner. People were walking away from the dessert table with handfuls of sweets. I barely had time to snap a few photos as my husband fended off the sugar-hungry crowd. It was nuts. At least the cake survived for dessert!

The amazing and talented Gina of GMH Photography captured this…with at least a couple of cake pops left:


And this one…chocolate-covered Oreos…sugar on sugar. Yum! 10544354_10204469175791561_5692994619224866344_n

I mean, really? The cutest cake topper. Best day ever!


These flowers? Too perfect. 10620536_10204469175911564_545500141897260888_n DSC_0235

The venue was spectacular and the bride’s decorations were perfect!

They had a live band, a DJ and two bars. What more could you need?

After getting the cake and cake pops are ready, I had to get myself ready. Always fun in a public restroom.

Dessert Bar by Cake on Sunday

This past weekend I had one of my biggest challenges…a cake and full dessert bar by Cake on Sunday for a wedding of 200.

One two-tier cake (almond cake with raspberry filling and textured buttercream…so good!)

One sheet cake

2 dozen chocolate covered Oreos

4 dozen cupcakes

2 dozen cakepops

30 parfaits

….and 0 sleep.

Oh, and as I had to remember 209 goodies before driving up to Lake Tahoe to deliver them…I forgot my camera. *Sigh* Back to iPhone photos for a post.

Here is the cake before the adorable cake topper (bears!) and flowers were added at the venue:
