WEDDING: Diaz-Reyes, Vines Mansion, 8/18/13

BRIDE:  Libby Diaz
GROOM:  Raul Reyes
VENUE:  Vines Mansion, Loganville

Vines Mansion - large or small, they can handle your wedding.  Located in Loganville, just off 78.  The grounds around this home are absolutely gorgeous. 

Libby and Raul met with me back in March and signed with me on the spot.  What really won me their cake order was when their daughter Naomi tasted the cakes and decided that I just had to create her birthday cake in November ... chocolate, of course. 

Libby looked like a princess in her gown, Raul very handsome.  Tiffany Blue was the pop color of their wedding ... even many of their guests wore that color as well.  Libby liked a different design on each tier so we did the usual single dot design on the top, their monogram on the 2nd tier, the quilt design on the third, and we changed it a bit by adding a variegated rosette on the fourth.  LOVED how it came out.  I'm anxious to receive the professional photo from David Scruggs.

WEDDING: Thomas-Till, King Plow, 8/10/13

BRIDE:  Lauren Thomas
GROOM:  Tyler Till
VENUE:  King Plow

The wedding planner said it best .... "it's clients like Lauren and Tyler who make you realize why we love doing what we do".  She is absolutely correct.  I couldn't agree more.  Every vendor hired by this couple went over and above for them.  That says an awful lot about them both. 


Lauren and Tyler met at Auburn University.  Auburn had to be a part of their wedding somehow.  So Tyler's groom cake was centered around Auburn's Camp War Eagle.   They were both Camp Counsellors.  Lauren's group followed her "popcorn" banner and Tyler's group followed his "Mr. T" banner.  All Tyler wanted was a cake with a cookie on top of it ... that's what he got ... a chocolate cake with a chocolate chip cookie cut to fit the top of the cake. I had a friend of mine create the two figurines for them as a surprise. 

Now the wedding cake ..... just look at this cake display.  Just beautiful.  The Cross was created by a family friend and will hang in the couple's livingroom.  This was the first time succulents have been added to one of my cakes .. I LOVE SUCCULENTS ON A CAKE! 

I sincerely wish Lauren and Tyler a lifetime of happines.  Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play such an important role on your special day.

WEDDING: Pearl-Smith, Glendalough Manor, 5/20/13


Glendalough Manor, Tyrone
BRIDE:  Roshanda "Ro" Pearl
GROOM:  Jamel Smith
VENUE:  Glendalough Manor, Tyrone


A Monday is an unusual day to have a wedding, but then again if you think about it ... instead of having a long weekend start on a friday ... it can end on a Monday.  There's a good chance that the venue will work with you on the rental fees. 

I met Ro and Jamel back in September 2012.  She had a pretty good idea of what her cake was going to look like.  Jamel is a UGA fan, so his groom cake design was a piece of cake (no pun intended). 

When I arrived at Glendalough, Jamel was just walking around ... he wasn't nervous, a little anxious perhaps .. but every chance he got he headed to the windows ... perhaps to take a sneak peek of his sweetie (who was having photo's taken outside).  Everyone (vendors/wait staff/family/friends) would catch him every time.  He of course would deny trying to see Ro, but we didn't believe him. 

Much happiness to you both, Ro and Jamel.

WEDDING: Kim-Law, Old Decatur Courthouse, 5/18/13

Old Decatur Courthouse
BRIDE:  Seunghyun Kim
GROOM:  Peter Law
VENUE:  Old Decatur Courthouse
I knew I had met a very special couple when I met Seunghyun (pronounced Sin Yun) and Peter back in September 2012.  They didn't have a definite idea for their cake design, but wanted to incorporate an element of their invitation onto the cake.  That is exactly what we did.  The color palette was grey and pink ... so we created a white cake with a grey ribbon border and pink design.  We were going to put floral on the top, but I asked if I could design their topper .. a larger version of the decorative element of their cake.  So I had my Sous Chef, Kelli trace and create their topper.  It was perfect.

My sincere wish for a lifetime of happiness, Seunghyun and Peter.

WEDDING: Miller-Rohan, Garden Hills Recreation Center, 5/18/13

BRIDE:  Sara Miller
GROOM:  Joel Rohan
VENUE:  Garden Hills Recreation Center


I met Sara and Joel back in August 2012.  I had never heard of their venue, but they were so excited to tell me all about it.  It's a little gem smack in the middle of the city.  Rustic.  Perfect.  Take the classic old fashioned icing technique, put the cake on a tree crosscut, add a rustic topper and you've got the perfect cake.

Congratulations, Sara and Joel.
