Hilburn-Styles, Houston Mill House, 5/16/9


There was a little snag as we arrived at Houston Mill House ... the event that was booked prior to this, hadn't left the premises yet ... thus causing a delay in cake set up, pre-ceremony pictures, set up in general. The previous party finally left and after determining that the wedding ceremony will in fact be held outside (it was an on-off rainy day) ... set up got underway.

I wish I had the chance to see Millie Hilburn and Kevin Styles on their special day, but after setting up the cake, I had to head to my next delivery.

The wedding cake was very different ... oval in shape .... and resembled Millie's dress .... large stripes of icing on the bottom, moving to narrower stripes on the top. Blue hydrangea decorated the top, each layer, and all around the bottom. All layers were white cake filled with Lemon filling (yum).

Now, the Groom's cake was my absolute favorite .... a larger than life Starbucks Mug. I loved how it came out. It was a three layer chocolate cake filled with Bailey's ... iced in white with the starbuck's logo .... complete with cream (which was more baileys buttercream) ... notice the heart carved in the cream. Too cute.

Congratulations, Millie and Kevin.
