WEDDING: Nuber-Maestre, Roswell River Landing, 10/7/10

Thursday is a very unusual day for a wedding. If you are still deciding on a date for your wedding, look at a Thursday or Sunday ... I believe venues tend to give a bigger discount.

Heidi Nuber and Ruben Maestre chose Roswell River Landing for their wedding and reception ... and what a great day it was ... 78 degrees, blue sky, light wind ... absolutely gorgeous.

Heidi and Ruben met with me back in January .... gosh, October seemed so far out at that time. Believe me, it got here fast !!! Heidi wanted cupcakes ... so 10 dozen were baked ... all different flavors/fillings (see bottom of this post). The cupcake tree was decorated with deep purple ribbon .... Angie of Birch Blooms provided the gorgeous purple hydrangea that I used to decorate the tree.

About a month before the wedding, Ruben decided he wanted a groom cake, but not the typical groom cake. Ruben wanted a Krispy Kreme donut cake. I love creating donut cakes ... they are so different and smell (and taste) so darn good. Not to mention, once guests realize what it is made of .. they just can't wait to dig in. He only wanted a total of 3 dozen donuts, so I was a little limited with the size, but still think it came out great.

Congratulations, Heidi and Ruben !!!

I absolutely love your groom's cake!! My brother in law asked if I could make his out of Krispy Creme donuts as well. I don't want it to be just a pile of donuts, so while "googling" I found your picture. It would work perfectly! I was wondering if you would mind sharing how you put it together? I assume toothpicks or dowels, but I thought I'd ask in the hopes of avoiding several dozen smooshed and over skewered donuts as a result from my experimentation!! Thanks so much!!

Hi Beth - no toothpicks or dowels needed. All you need are HOT Krispy Kreme donuts ... when you place them side by side, they will stick together when they cool. Good Luck !!!
