Happy Birthday!

We don't just create wedding cakes. We do all types of cakes including children's birthday cakes. This little guy likes Thomas the Train. Since Thomas is copyrighted, we created a cake "background" and his mom could then put a little train on the edible track around the cake. There is a tunnel, snow capped mountains, wildflowers and a sign wishing him a Happy Birthday.

And there's a picture of the birthday boy on his mom's blog!

Happy Anniversary to Joel and Brandy

Happy first anniversary to Joel and Brandy! Louisville Wedding Cake created the bride's and groom's cakes for their wedding one year ago. They decided to serve their entire cakes instead of freezing the top tier and took a gift certificate for their anniversary cake. I've always said that year old cake tastes a whole lot like year old cake . . .

For their anniversary cake the couple chose a marble of chocolate raspberry and almond white, with a raspberry filling. yummmmm

Here are pictures of their bride's and groom's cakes from a year ago.

Hannah and Adam

Hannah's cake was decorated with edible lace motifs and edible pearls taken from the lace pattern on her dress. I brushed the lace motifs with gold pearl dust for shimmer. The lace was a champagne color, with pearl centers in the flower part of the lace. Flavors were Italian Creme, Strawberry and Tuxedo.

The reception was beautifully decorated for an early Spring day. The centerpieces were loose bunches of mixed colors of Spring flowers provided by Lloyd's and the tables were draped with white linens to the floor and sage topppers, flanked by white chairs provided by Bella Wedding Rentals. The color scheme was mostly ivory, champagne, sage and lavendar and was so very pretty!

The Groom's cake was an edible replica of a Wraith Disc Golf (don't call it a Frisbee) resting in grass. I was reliably informed that the groom is an accomplished disc golfer. His cake was Chocolate Almond.

Nancy and Ben

Nancy and Ben had an AHR at Glassworks in January. They chose a cake in two of my favorite colors, red and black, and who can resist hearts for a wedding? The bow on top is edible, too!

Ben picked up the cake to deliver it to Glassworks all on his own. What a brave guy! Most people can move a three tier cake if they have a van, SUV or wagon-ish sort of vehicle, and nerves of steel. For everyone else, we do offer delivery. But then he had some experience. We'd also created a small cake for their wedding ceremony and family reception.

And we received the nicest thank you note from them.

"Thank you for baking our ceremony and reception cakes - they were beautiful and we got many compliments on how great they looked and tasted. You really have a unique talent and you captured our personalities with your design. We've got several friends getting married soon and we're going to pass along your card.

Thanks again! Nancy and Ben"

And thank you for choosing me to make your cakes.


I launched my etsy store last week. These are chocolate covered "chocolate sandwich cookies" (hey, why give them free advertising?) decorated with a fleur de lis, a wedding couple, a heart, and some other designs that I need to post. They are yummily addictive.

Jeaeun and Junho

These two made the cutest couple! It was one of those rare occasions where we stayed for the reception because we were working the chocolate fountain. Normally after creating, delivering and setting up the cake, we leave to do the next delivery. But the chocolate fountain requires an attendant, so we were there working.

The reception/wedding lunch was held at Mikato Steak and Sushi Restaurant. The introductions and toasts were given in Korean so we didn't understand a word, but what we did understand perfectly was the glowing joy on the happy couple's faces.

There seemed to be a running joke among those who knew the couple best about the groom's lack of singing ability. He was prompted to demonstrate his . . . err . . . musical talents several times to the general delight of the assembled guests. It was all in good fun and he was laughing as much as the guests.
