More Sugar! The Unique Ones.

Ready for more sugar?!  A few weeks ago we took a nostalgic trip back in time to pay tribute to some of the structurally complex wedding cakes of the early 2000’s.  Today we’ll look at a unique cake from several years back and some “themed” wedding cakes.

 This first one was designed for a bride who was a big Mickey Mouse fan.  Their reception was at the old Hotel Blackhawk Gold Room in 2005 before it closed down.  The facility has since been majestically restored and is now hosting weddings again.  Here is Mickey (and Minnie):

In the summer of 2007 one of my clients staged a Hawaiian Luau theme reception in Galesburg Illinois.  The food was fabulous and the cake was perfectly designed to go with the tropical theme.

Maybe you can’t get enough chocolate.  You would have enjoyed being at this wedding:

A bride who thought her new husband’s tractor was sexy had a special groom’s cake designed for him at their wedding in Goose Lake, Iowa.  This is one green John Deere tractor:

And finally the last cake makes my list because it was extremely unique at the time.  I recall thinking that the cake below was the most beautiful cake I had ever seen.  It was created by Robin at LeCake (LeCake can be found on Facebook) for a wedding reception held at the Davenport Country Club in 2003. Fondant frosting seemed to be fairly new back then and the simplicity combined with elegance was a fresh idea.  That was the first time I had met Robin or viewed one of her fabulous wedding cakes.  I’ve seen a lot more since then, each one breathtaking in new and different ways!

This might be a good time to see if we’ve got anything sweet in the kitchen.  Suddenly I’m feeling rather hungry!
