Now, the moment we've all been waiting for....

Kathy & Aron's Wedding!!!
I can't believe the wedding has come and gone. We had a really great time at The Hellenic Center in Ipswich. The site was beautiful and you could tell Kathy & Aron took so much time in making sure every little detail was in place. I was so impressed with Kathy's creativity- including, but certainly not limited to, making napkin rings for each guest and making a scrapbook album that was used as their guest book.
I have to admit, when Kathy first approached me insisting I do her cake I was definitely nervous. While I had done many large cakes before, this was to be my first wedding cake. I knew from early on that I had to make the cake as special as they both are. Kathy came up with the idea for her cake when she was first engaged and we spent plenty of time over Panera coffee, Halloween parties, BBQs, emails, texts and phone calls planning every detail.
After lots of preparation, baking, frosting, detailing and delivering I am happy and honored to have been a part of such a special, memorable event.
A very special thanks goes out to both Kathy & Aron for trusting in my abilities! I am so happy for you both and look foward to getting together with the new Mr. & Mrs. once they return from Haiwaii!!!
Now, for the cake!
Three tiers (6in-10in-14in) consisting of double layers (one chocolate and one gold) with traditional buttercream frosting and fresh flowers.

The happy couple- Mr. & Mrs. Bellorado!

Fenway's New Line-Up

This cake was made for a Red Sox fan. His wife wanted me to put Dad at bat, herself on third and her two little girls on first and second. Everything is edible except the sheet on the right that's made to look like "fans".
