We feel honored when we are asked to not only create the perfect wedding cake, but also a unique groom’s cake for a couple’s big day- especially when the groom’s cake is a surprise! Kendall and Patrick got married on April 11th, 2015 at Bridgeport Art Center in the Skyline Loft, and we had the privilege of crafting not one, but two cakes for their wedding. Aside from their gorgeous, five tier wedding cake, we crafted a mini replica of one of America’s most iconic stadiums- Wrigley Field. It’s always fun when brides surprise their groom with a cake that reflects their hobbies or personal interests- in this case, a love for the Chicago Cubs and their home base! Take a peek at the photos below by Shane Welch Photography.
This sculpted Wrigley Field groom’s cake was just as scrumptious as it was handsome: chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream coupled with dark chocolate ganache. Yum!
Kendall and Patrick’s wedding cake had a variety of different flavors, each tier different from the other. Beginning with the first tier, the flavors were as follows: vanilla bean cake with nutella buttercream, chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream, carrot cake with cream cheese filling, vanilla bean cake with cookies-n-cream buttercream, and red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. As a finishing touch, Fab Flora provided lovely fresh flowers that were added onto the top and sides of their cake.
We hope they enjoyed their cakes as much as we enjoyed making them! Other vendors who made their day spectacular were Denouement Weddings, Fotio, and Catered by Design. Congratulations again, Kendall and Patrick!
