Kaitlyn & Derek held their ceremony and reception at the Marriott in Downtown Salt Lake. And what a beautiful reception it was. They have been planning their incredible event for over a year, and it turned out spectacular. I met with them last fall and have been looking forward to this cake all year! It turned out just as I'd imagined it.
This cake was so elegant, simple, and regal, all at the same time. I loved the design. Sometimes less is more, and this cake was just that!
The pattern on the cake was hand piped and then hand painted with edible gold food coloring. The ribbon was real fabric trim and added a subtle sparkle to the cake. I loved how the gold and ivory tones of the cake went so well with the beautiful gold accents from the chandeliers and sconces to the table linens and floral elements.
This cake was tall, towering, and made a statement. Once the flowers were placed on the cake, it finished it off perfectly. Emily with Emily Brooks Designdid the flowers. I always look forward to seeing the final product when a cake has fresh flowers that will be added at the reception. Emily did a fabulous job on this cake adding all the roses and strands of ribbon. Beautimous!
Kaitlyn and Derek chose some fabulous flavor combinations for their cake including yellow butter cake with toffee crunch buttercream, red velvet cake with Bavarian cream buttercream, and white chocolate cake with rasberry buttercream.
I had a great time working with them on this cake for their beautiful wedding and was so pleased with how it turned out. It was a pleasure working with them.
I want to wish Kaitlyn and Derek a beautiful new life together!
