Kaci & Roy’s Fabulous Wedding (with Cupcakes!)

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

All photography in this post by Jon Bolden.

Hi everyone! I had the very good fortune to provide the celebratory cupcakes for Kaci & Roy’s wedding in September… I have to say that they are truly two of my very favorite clients. To meet them is to love them. For their wedding, Kaci and Roy were extremely creative and they worked to have a ceremony (at the Cathedral of Junk) and reception (at Hill’s Cafe) that was warm, welcoming, and whimsical - a perfect fit for the couple. Kaci was kind enough to share some pictures of the evening with me, and I’ve included them here for you to check out. Jon Bolden took the lovely photographs - all the credits for this post go to him!

Here’s what the lovely Kaci had to say about the wedding cupcakes (one of my all-time favorite compliments!):

Seriously, these are hands down the best g-damn cupcakes, with the best cake and frosting I’ve ever had in my whole life. I thought I didn’t really like cake all that much until I had these - rich, moist, with light and flavorful frosting. Highly recommended!!!

Kaci and Roy - I’m so, so pleased to have been a part of your big day! All the best!

Halloween’s-a-comin’… For a casual get-together with friends last night, I made some simple little cupcakes in the style of Martha Stewart. The cupcakes were sour cream chocolate cake with orange-tinted cream cheese buttercream. The cupcakes were topped with sanding sugar and handmade dark chocolate spider webs.

Cake Wrecks Book Signing - Austin

What a fabulous event on Saturday! Thanks to John’s ongoing recovery (yay!), Jen & John were able to reschedule the Cake Wrecks book book signing event for Austin, and we had the opportunity to hang with them on Saturday. I have to say that Jen & John are just as lovely as you’d imagine - super-friendly and a joy to listen to. Nicole had a blast meeting fellow Cake Wrecks fans and enjoying delicious cake!
