Rhodes-Wallace, Houston Mill House, 9/12/9
After a relaxing Labor Day weekend off, I was ready to get baking again ..... The Houston Mill House was the site of Millie Rhodes and Jon Wallace's wedding and reception. They met with me back in March and after thumbing thru my portfolio, they found a cake design that fit with their theme beautifully. Branches and a delphinium blue (silver blue) accent color were used throughout the wedding decor.
Their cake was three tiers and filled w/ Baileys (yum) ... but only served 78, so a sheet cake was prepared and brought to the kitchen to be used for "extra servings". To continue with their branch theme ... I hand drew the branches using dark chocolate .... and then added the silver blue accent color.
I tried to see Millie when I went back later that night to pick up my plateau, but she (and Jon) were just too busy dancing and having a great time surrounded by family and friends and I just couldn't get to them. So I hope they were pleased and look forward to seeing them next September for their first anniversary.
Best wishes, Millie and Jon !
