WEDDING: West-Barto, Braselton-Stover House, 7/24/10

This was my first delivery to the Braselton-Stover House. It's worth looking into. Charming and elegant describes the historical Braselton-Stover House located in downtown Braselton, Georgia. Built in 1916 by Green Braselton, the second son born to the town’s founder, William Harrison Braselton, the house was purchased in December 2000 and faithfully restored to its current beauty and charm by Mary and Marvin Stover.

In addition to the historical house with its inviting wrap-around porch, is the 6000 square foot banquet facility that was completed in November 2008. It's gorgeous. Like the house, the new facility features period furnishings and is beautifully decorated. French doors open from the banquet hall onto the veranda overlooking the garden area.

I shouldn't have "favorite" couples, but Katie West and Burt Barto could be considered "favorites". When we met back in February, I realized that this was a couple meant for each other. Katie didn't want the normal "stacked" cake ... she went out of the box and we placed each cake on its own board and used covered elevation to showcase them. Navy ribbon and yellow/white floral finished each cake. It came out great.

Burt's cake was all his design. I have never seen a groom so excited about his cake as Burt was. He had a vision of a groom throwing a ball to his bride who was standing at home plate. It's called "Batter Up" !!! I sure hope he was happy with my interpretation of his cake design.

Katie works with my next door neighbor and I can't wait to hear all about their wedding.

Congratulations, Katie and Burt !!! See you on your first anniversary.

Just wanted to send you a big THANK YOU for the amazing job you did on all of our cakes for our wedding. We could not have been more pleased and I know that Burt was tickled pink by his cake! Not only did they look amazing but we've also heard from others, that they tasted amazing too! We will definitely be using you again in the future.
