Bridal Show…… March 9, 2009

We recently participated our first show in Raleigh.  The Embassy Suites-Crabtree hosted a lovely show on a chilly Sunday afternoon.  We were happy to escape to the tropical theme of the show.  A lucky couple won a trip to a fabulous beach somewhere!


Here is a picture of our booth.  We offered three different cake styles along with matching favors.




We were offering 2 samples that day; Butter cake with chocolate mousse and Butter cake with a yummy lemon curd.  A lot of people shied away from the lemon curd…I guess it sounds a bit strange.  But I have to tell you…a freshly made curd (lemon, lime, passion fruit) is absolutely to DIE for!!  Tangy and sweet and oh so creamy!







We also met some more of Raleigh’s fabulous wedding classy-jeweled-cake-flowers-english-gardenvendors! Diamond Entertainment will get you and your loved ones to your wedding and reception in style!  Vivienne Carosso has excellent jewelry from Cookie Lee that would be perfect as bridesmaid gifts or your wedding day ensemble.  We are excited to visit Cute Buttons in Cary for adorable paper products and invitations.  And we were fortunate to meet the owners of The English Garden florist.  They were kind enough to allow us to take this photo of our cake next to their Stunning floral display.


You can catch us at our next bridal show on April 19th and the Southern Bridal Show & Expo at the NC Fairgrounds.  This show is hosted by Forever Bridal and I have heard that they host wonderful shows.  We will have more samples and new cakes for you to see. 











If you can’t wait until April to meet us, remember we offer free tasting and consultations Tuesday-Thursday at from 10-2 and at 7pm.  Please remember that our tastings are by appointment only.
