My first big cake!

Hey everyone! Hope you all are having a great summer! I've been super busy with traveling and baking so far and have neglected this little blog! So let me share what I've been working on lately!

About a year ago, a dear friend from college asked if I would be interested in making a grooms cake for her upcoming wedding! Of course I said yes and was so honored she thought of me! We brainstormed and came up with a football themed cake we thought he would love! I even made it a chocolate fudge cake with peanut butter filling to be modeled after a Reese's cup (his favorite candy)! 

Why football? Well that's because football is a large part of Patrick's life! He is currently an assistant coach at a high school and worked with UC football before that. 
Here is a look at my cake with the wedding cake that one of her bridesmaids made! 

Here is a closer shot of my cake! 

There were some ups and downs of making such a large cake as my first cake! I wanted it to be perfect for Bri and Patrick on their big day! 

It was a proud moment to say "I made that!" when people at my table were saying it was delicious and that they loved it! 

Here is the happy couple for their first dance!

Their wedding was beautiful and I wish them all the best!


  1. I think Bill and I met this couple at your families Christmas party?
    Great job! The cake looks wonderful:)

  2. It was a fantastic cake! So good!
