Owls, Birds and Barn - A Non-traditional Wedding Cake

This was one of my favorite weddings to work on and so many of the details were almost as personal to me as they were to the bride and groom. I loved that they wanted a cake that wasn't traditional and they provided me with cute owl toppers to work with. I designed the cake to match their invitations and the barn was a replica of Pickering Barn in Issaquah, WA, where their wedding was held. The best part is the entire barn is their top tier of cake and they took it home to dig in on their first anniversary.

All around the cake are hand-painted silhouettes of birds and tree branches, with three-dimensional flowers popping off the cake. The barn is carved cake and covered in fondant with hand-painted accents. The cupcakes were topped with matching flowers - tying them all together. You can tell from their bright and vibrant decorations, that this fun couple really knew how to throw a party. Congratulations Chelsea and Kevin!

The cake and cupcakes went perfectly with their decorations.
