Spring Cookies

We are starting to bake our Spring Collection of Cookies. We’ve been making our Sugar-Shortbread™ Painted Cookies for more than 24 years! We still mix them in small batches, roll, cut, and decorate by hand. I love these cookies; it’s one of my favorite bakery items to make. The main reason is…they ALWAYS make people smile. And, our company name came from the exclamations people would make when they received their cookies. Called Sugar-Shortbread™ because these cookies have attributes of both those cookies types. They are buttery, not overly sweet, crunch nicely when you bite into them and most importantly, you can’t just eat one! The cookie is made of wheat flour, sugar, butter, eggs, pure vanilla, and salt. The icing is made with egg whites and confectioners sugar.

A Thank You To Our Brides

Reflecting back on our years of making custom wedding cakes, I see a kaleidoscope of smiling faces and  beautiful places. I hear snippets of conversation, music, tears of joy, and laughter of wonderful family gatherings. I see gorgeous flowers, delectable foods, ribbons, bows, and lace.

We put our heart and all our energy into providing the best tasting made from scratch cake. With exacting attention to detail we tried to faithfully interpret and present the bride with her dream wedding cake. My biggest thrill was watching a bride see her cake for the first time.. As Spencer pointed out, the cake is the only part of the wedding experience that the bride has not seen. The moment she does is priceless.

Each and every bride was special to us. Their personal stories and their wedding experiences were each unique. We were honored to be part of her special day. We felt it was our responsibility to deliver a top quality product in a professional manner befitting the occasion. Our goal was to exceed expectations and we believe we did everything possible to achieve that goal.

We learned so much from our brides, grooms, and their families. We incorporated suggestions and were continually asking for comment and input as to any aspect of their experience with us so that we could improve. They made us better, and for that, we thank you!

As we move away from making wedding cakes into another sector of our bakery business, our goal is to continue on with quality products, exacting detail, professional service and a passion for delighting our customers.

Turntable Groom’s Cake by Too Pretty To Eat

 

One of the most exciting and challenging cakes we have made was a groom’s cake.  The bride wanted to knock it out of the park. She provided photos of his Pro-Ject Debut III turntable, ( yes he is an audiophile)  the name of his favorite Jazz artist, his favorite football  team, and off to the planning table for us ! Spencer was the point man on the working turntable and embedding an MP3 player with the Miles Davis tunes on it. It was a cheesecake covered in fondant with all the buttons, knobs, and a moveable tonearm playing an edible 33LP.  The LP was cast in chocolate and the center label was printed onto edible paper. There was a stack of record albums (all of cake), and the New Orleans Saints football of chocolate cake finished out the groom’s surprise. The table had photos of his family and some memorabilia important to him. As the groom approached his table we heard him say “That’s my turntable! “

It was a good day for all.

In the attached video there is a Bulldogs hand bell sitting in front of the cake and the handle is seen projecting up. Neither the hand bell or the photos are edible but everything else is!

Sugar Blossoms Too Pretty To Eat

 

I guess it’s the little flash of sunshine and warmish weather that has me thinking of spring . My favorite aspect of spring is the wildflowers that bloom in our woods here.  I love these little sugar blossoms because they remind me of some of the delicate little wildflowers. Several of our brides have selected these to adorn their wedding cakes.  They are made from sugar paste and are completely edible.

Whitney and Scott’s Wedding Cake Monogram

 

Whitney told Spencer during her tasting that she wanted me to do “my thing” with her cake, what a wonderful, delightful way to approach her cake. Whitney asked me to make her wedding cake unique to her. After completing her design, I decided to decorate three of the tiers with their new monogram, WNS.

In the video you can see me finishing the top tier of her wedding cake.  This aspect of her cake was a total surprise to her on her wedding day. So while the bride can try on her dress multiple times, envision her hair, and know what her groom is going to wear, the cake is an element of surprise. It is truly a delight to watch the bride see her cake for the first time.
