Protect Yourself and Your Guests: Make sure your decorator is licensed and inspected through their state and fully insured. In NH there are two classifications of home licenses 1.) Decorators earning under a certain $ amount per year - don't have to have their kitchens inspected. :-( 2.) for decorators earning over a certain amount per year, their kitchens need to be inspected by the DHHS. Always visit the kitchen your cake will be created in :-)
Congratulations Joseph & Katherine.

Thanks everyone, it's going to be
another great year for weddings.
If your wedding cake has
to be an original,
book early :-)
A good decorator is hard to find. Reservations are made a year or more in advance, because nothing beats a New England wedding - especially in the Fall!
The Garden State Cake Show. Chosen to do a live mini cake challenge with Food Network greats Zane Beg of "The Sweet Life" in Anandale, VA and Wayne Steinkopf of "Swank Cakes". And yes, my face stayed bright red for over an hour! What a Day!

Featured Florist: Ideas In Bloom, New Boston, NH and Massachusetts
Look at this review: "The best way to describe my absolute delight with my flower arrangements and bouquets is that I actually screamed with excitement when I saw them. I was so blown away with how the Ideas In Bloom team pieced together my thoughts, Pinterest inspiration, and color scheme and designed arrangements that matched our venue and style perfectly. Pam and Kristin have such a wonderful eye - the colors, textures, details of the arrangements were above and beyond what I ever imagined. My bridesmaids were thrilled with their bouquets and the boys were happy to have more masculine succulent boutineers
Pam and Kristin were so wonderful to work with and always super responsive. They're incredibly talented but sweet and professional to top it off! I recommend Ideas in Bloom to everyone!"

December 2013: Just returned from an intensive 4 day hands-on cake decorating class at The Mother of Cakes Sugar Academy in Pennsylvania and look what I created.
At the Class. Denise on the right, our wonderful teacher Kelvin (of Malaysia) in the center and in the back Chef Dana, of Cake Boss fame. He took the class with us and surprised us with the most delicious cookies from his bakery in Delaware.
Apple Basket Wedding Cake.
Can be filled with flowers, mini pumpkins and sugar leaves for your apple orchard Spring, Fall or Summer wedding.
Shanghai Splendor: Takes your breath away. But gave everyone in the class a "Splendid" headache. To encourage us our teacher would say " ef you mak a mistake, don worry, sheet happen, but we fix it" Thanks Kelvin - words to live by. :-)
See what cake designers do in their "off season" :-) We play....... learn....... and stretch our minds so that we can hit the ground running with new techniques for 2014.
Congratulations Christopher and Meagan. Married on 12/28/13. Reception at the Bedford Village Inn. They gave me a square of wrapping paper they loved and asked me to design the cake around it. Eggplant, red, burgundy and gold.
And the last cake was called "The Bride" Just gorgeous. Replicates the lace on a wedding gown.
After 16 years of Taste Tests, I've finally developed the ideal wedding cake for New Hampshire Grooms entitled "What HE Wants". :-) Not a real cake, it's covered in fabric and spoofs the Duck Dynasty guy in all country grooms. See a closeup on my "unusual cakes" page. :-)
P.S. The antlers were found by the builder of the stand, in the woods. No deer was harmed in the making of this stand :-)
Fun modern wedding cake!!
Congratulations Sarah and Sean. Married on 2/22/13 at Nubble Light House and held their reception one year later 2/22/14 at The Shattuck in Jaffrey, NH. They requested a lighthouse wedding cake with the bride and groom standing on the rocks overlooking the ocean - as they love to do (and where the groom proposed). The light in the lighthouse actually works :-) I made the cake stand out of crushed paper and seashells then painted it silver. What a great way to start the 2014 wedding season!
