Hydrangeas and Cardinals Wedding

This wedding order started out as a small cutting cake, topped with real hydrangeas, a few cupcakes for guests and possibly a grooms cake. After a tasting consultation and a review of my drawings, it ended up a grand, wonderful affair.

I made hundreds of gorgeous hydrangea blossoms in all different shades of blues - from lavender to green tints - to look like real flowers. The main wedding cake was Vegan Chocolate cake with Vegan Peppermint buttercream. Mini Orange Dream and Red Velvet cupcakes were each topped with a single flower. Standard sized
Lemon Berry Twist cupcakes were piped to look like hydrangeas.

The groom's cake was a surprise gift to the groom. He's a huge St. Louis Cardinals fan so a Chocolate Manhattan 8" cake was topped with a carved 5" baseball cap cake and adorned with baseballs, bats and the number "5" - an homage to his favorite player, Albert Pujols. Red Velvet cupcakes decorated like baseballs completed the table spread.

Congratulations Erin & Brett!

Look at the detail!

There was a mixture or standard and mini cupcakes.
