Natalia and Ryan's Wedding

Tuesday, September 8, 2009

So I got a call a few months ago from my mother in-law Carol. She had recently celebrated her 60th birthday and a friend of hers that attended loved my cupcakes and wanted to know if I would make some for her nieces wedding. I had never done anything quite as big or as important but I knew I could do a good job of it and would love the practice.

The bride Natalia was very laid back and was open to all my suggestions, which made things easy. We decided on a chocolate cake, with ivory vanilla buttercream and a little handmade sugar flower. The day of cooking went quite smoothly, we packed up the car and off we went to the reception. Got there and opened my big container, SUGAR!! 4 had fallen over!! Thank god I packed that pallet knife and just smoothed them over, popped the flower back on and viola. Suffice to say they went to the back of the stand. We (my mum came to help) arranged the cupcakes on the stand my dad had made for me...placed the flowers on the cutting cake and stood back. I was so freaking proud of myslef!! It wasn't perfect but I think it was pretty darn close.

The next day I recieved this email from the bride and groom:

"Hi Kate,
Ryan and I just wanted to say a huge thankyou for our beautiful wedding cake. It was everything we hoped for and more. You did an amazing job. Everyone has commented to us so far how yummy it was and each cupcake just looked so cute. I couldn't beleive how big it looked! When we get our proffessional photo's we will send a few on to you. I hope there wern't too many hiccups with setting it all up.
Thankyou again
Best regards
Ryan and Natalia Morris"
