Sarah & Thomas

Though she is from Fairfield, Sarah was planning her wedding long distance. Between e-mail, phone calls, meeting with Sarah's lovely mom, then meeting with Sarah and her mom twice, we had a final plan! Sarah chose a 3-tier wedding cake for her 130 guests: Lemon layer cake, raspberry filling and fluffy white buttercream. We love this flavor combination, it's as delicious as it is pretty. Combined with pale buttercream, there is the element of surprise when the bride and groom cut the cake and you see 4 pretty layers of cake with raspberry filling.

The beautiful bride-to-be had some very specific ideas about how she wanted her cake decorated. We love the simplicity and elegance of her choices. The oh-so-pretty sparkling topper was hand made by a family friend which lent an extra special touch to the cake. Sarah and her mom worked with their florist and gave us just the right number of flowers for this graceful cake. 

Sarah and her mother also chose us for her wedding shower cake, to provide petite boxes of our Signature Chocolate Chip Cookies for their out-of-town guests and a super clever surprise groom's cake (not featured here). It's always fun for us to be involved with so many aspects of one event. 

We wish Sarah & Thomas every good thing as they begin their married life together!

Andrea & Lisa

A lovely morning wedding in August at the Inn at Longshore in Westport, Connecticut... Andrea and Lisa had to be sweet talked into a petite wedding cake and I'm so glad I have not lost my powers of gentle persuasion. That moment when a couple cuts their wedding cake is always one of my favorites. Here's a wonderful example of a couple knowing exactly what they wanted - lots of cupcakes! - and then deciding together that they would choose a petite cake for the photo op. They not only look radiant, but they have the forever picture with their pretty cake, too. Andrea and Lisa chose our Signature Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream for their wedding cake. Delicious!

Dana & Paul

Thank you to our regular morning customers, Dana & Paul, for letting us share a sweet picture from their utterly romantic fall, 2014 wedding at Alder Manor, Yonkers, NY What made this cake extra special for us to bake is that Dana asked us to recreate her grandmother’s famous Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe as their wedding cake. We were inspired by how much Dana’s family loved the cake recipe and how special it would be to their family to include the cake as part of their day. Dana’s grandmother passed away the year before. The cake had the tang of sour cream rounded out with vanilla and a classic streusel of brown sugar and chopped walnuts in every layer. We baked each layer of each 4-layer tier separately to ensure an even distribution of streusel – time consuming but so worth it. 

A little side note, it was an unbelievably rainy afternoon and the sun came out as soon as Dana and Paul’s ceremony ended – so perfect!
