Busy weekend!

It was a Deer Creek weekend! 3 weddings and 1 surprise Groom's/rehearsal cake took place the weekend of October 5th/6th.
At least they were all local, in fact all 3 weddings took place at the same venue! Good planning!
The Friday wedding featured a dramatic cake of chocolate and green. 2 tiers were midnight chocolate cake, the 3rd was banana - all layered with Chai caramel buttercream. Finished in dark chocolate fondant with green Swiss dots and fresh orchids. Stunning combination.

The same day was the rehearsal dinner for Rebecca & Brian - she wanted to surprise him with a replica of his favourite Nascar driver's car - Dale Earnhardt. Entirely cake and hand carved.

The Saturday was a double - Rebecca & Brian's wedding day featuring a theme of Tahitian Pearls and Sandra & Piero's orange themed wedding.

Sandra & Piero wanted a wedding completely revolving around orange - both in colours and flavours! Their cake reflected just that. All tiers were vanilla orchid cake splashed with Grand Marnier sugar syrup and layered with fresh orange curd filling and vanilla buttercream. Based on a Wendy Kromer design, the cake was finished in a smooth buttercream and decorated with white chocolate curls and candied orange zest. The top tier featured a pair of handmade white chocolate sugared oranges and white chocolate leaves.

Rebecca & Brian opted for a fondant finished cake featuring tiny piped pearl dots, sugar pearls, fresh orchids and blown sugar bubbles - all in Tahitian pearl colours. Inside did not disappoint with the base tier being lemon scented cake with lemon buttercream and fresh raspberries, the middle tier vanilla orchid cake with Tahitian vanilla buttercream and the top tier of banana buttermilk cake with hot buttered rum buttercream.

Congratulations to all of you!
