A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of making the cake for a Vintage Wedding. I lieu of flowery centerpieces, the bride opted to use antique books tied in burlap, old buttons, and scripts. A worn suitcase held the couple’s cards. It was very charming, and I was thrilled at the imagination of the bride to go with a non-traditional (and yet traditional) cake.
I designed a leather style suitcase as the base of the cake, topped with a couple of antique books and a ribbon cake off to the other side. As the couple is from West Virginia, I made a luggage sticker of the state, and since they are headed off to Hawaii to start their future, a vintage Hawaiian Airlines sticker made an appearance on the front. Finally, I made a few buttons out of fondant to scatter about, tying the whole thing together.
I was elated to find that Laura of Laura’s Focus was the photographer, as her pictures are gorgeous. She did a great job again, and I know the bride and groom must be so happy with her work.
A HUGE thanks to the Thomas Bride and Groom, and again, to Laura for the use of her beautiful photos.
And thank you all for letting me share this other side (the Cake Side) of my life!
