Custom Cake Spotlight: Fishing Boat Groom’s Cake and Hanging Wedding Cake

We had a blast making both a groom’s cake and wedding cake for Kellie and Scott this past August! The couple- from Delray Beach, Florida- tied the knot here in the Windy City during a gorgeous ceremony at the Skyline Loft at Bridgeport Art Center. Tiffany Munster, Owner of Soiree Weddings & Events put together a stunning event and we were so happy to be part of it! Take a look at the photos we took of the groom’s cake, and the professional photos of their hanging wedding cake by Cristina G Photography.

The night before their wedding, Kellie and Scott held their rehearsal dinner at River Roast where they enjoyed a special groom’s cake for dessert. The cake was a sculpted fishing boat that included three passengers: Kellie, Scott, and their pup Kade! That was the couple’s way of including their furry friend into their wedding. The boat was called “The Granville Ames”, and featured a University of Miami logo on the side to honor their alma mater.

Kellie and Scott’s wedding took place the next day at the Skyline Loft at Bridgeport Art Center. They displayed their beautiful cake in a bit of an unusual manner- hung from the ceiling! MDM Entertainment hung the cake after the room flip, so guests were surprised by its lovely display. Instead of simply having one wedding cake for dessert, they wanted to have a full dessert table, so they had one large hanging wedding cake accompanied with four smaller single tier cakes. What a fantastic look that has been achieved, I’m sure any wedding cake maker would be proud of this.

The wedding cake was carrot cake with pecans and cream cheese filling. The other cakes were lemon cake with lemon buttercream, lemon cake with passion fruit buttercream, and then chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream. Vale of Enna provided fresh floral to adorn their beautiful side cakes. KSA-948 KSA-950 KSA-951 KSA-952 KSA-955
