Pretty In Pink2

Last weekend was fun! After I stayed up til 2 a.m. finishing my preparations, my friend Molly joined me at my booth out at the Love In Bloom bridal fair at Powell Gardens. We spent the day enjoying each other's company, meeting lots of brides-to-be and their friends, and chatting with other cake gals. Here we are posing...that's Molly on the left and me on the right.

To add a little excitement, visitors voted for their favorite display cake from all the different cake vendors. It was my first bridal fair and I took home 2nd place! Whoo-hoo! I received a beautiful centerpiece flower arrangement with purple and pink primroses and all kinds of other pretties along with a cash prize.

My cake was titled "Rosa Silhouette" and was a three tier square cake that I stair stacked to give a flat surface on the back. Then I piped a silhouette of a bride and groom along this "canvas" turning what usually would be the back into the front of the cake. I added lots of pink pearly bobbles around as borders and on wires for the topper. It was much fun to create and my favorite part is that the design is my very own brain-child! So many of my other cakes are inspired directly from another design--unique creations always take the cake in my book!

I wish I had taken pictures of the other cake booths, but I became quickly distracted after the fair got going and never got my camera out again! Now I'm just hoping for a wedding contract or two...what a beautiful place to have a wedding.
