I figured it was time for me to go around my town and a few of the nearby towns and introduce myself… to let everyone know that Dream Cake Boutique is back and ready to bake. So I baked up three flavors of cupcakes – Triple Chocolate with Peanut Butter Filling, Red Velvet and White Cake with a tangy, but sweet lemon filling. I put each cupcake in a clear box, wrapped it in a ribbon and stuck one of my business cards to the top of the box.
I introduced and met the florists, wedding planners, photographers and a few of their customers. I met some really great people, many who had no idea that Dream Cake Boutique even existed. I was told that the closest cake decorator was over an hour away… So I’m very happy that I took the time to go around and introduce myself.
What a GREAT day!!!
This week’s cake request was for a simple, but elegant wedding cake. I’ve always had a problem with “simple.” Even as a kid in school, when I’d have a science project… my mother would always ask me to keep it simple, but of course I always went overboard. For instance, the assignment was to make a solar system. My mother thought that we could simply buy Styrofoam, make the earth and other planets, paint them and use wire to place them around the sun. My idea was to add light, make the planets actually orbit around the sun, include the moons and add an asteroid. Needless to say, although I thought this wedding cake was BEAUTIFUL, it was hard for me not to add flowers and other decorations on each tier.
Speaking of flowers, the flowers on this cake was to replicate the flowers in the wedding bouquet. I was really proud of myself on this one…
