Liz and Riley

Ta Da! I’m so excited to show you all the wedding I made the cakes for! My dear friend Liz got married to the sweetest man yesterday and asked me to do the cakes. It was such a treat. Literally.

This guy is vanilla with raspberry buttercream filling.

There were two of these dudes, one of my favorites: chocolate blackberry whiskey.

This one is toffee.

The big guy is lemon honey lavender, which I do believe was the most popular one of the night. Good thing there was the most of it!

Look at their adorable topper! Liz’s dad made it for them. So cute.

Congrats Liz and Riley! I know you’ll live happily ever after!

(p.s. I think I’ll do another post once official pictures come out, I was just so excited, I couldn’t wait.)


A Chocolaty Birthday

Happy Birthday to my dear friend Kyle.

This is a dense chocolate cake with a light chocolate frosting and lots o’ little chocolate curls that were made with love. I also really enjoyed spreading chocolate all over my counter. Somehow, it’s very satisfying.

If you are looking for a really good chocolate cake recipe, I found mine at Poires au Chocolat. Her cake is quite beautiful. And she tells you how to make it that beautiful. I have made a whiskey cake like hers is, but I find that instead of making the whiskey simple syrup, drizzling just straight whiskey on the cake has a more awesome (and boozy) effect.
