Wedding Cake Demo @ The Bookstall
Mimi Putnam, of The Bookstall in Marion, MA, was kind to ask us to setup a wedding cake decorating demo at her adorable shop right on Sippican Harbor. Here are two of the four cakes that we had on display and later devoured!
The three tiered cake is wrapped in pink satin ribbon with a handmade gumpaste magnolia dusted in pale yellow and chartreuse with tiny lily of the valley. This cake features a double layer center tier which gives a modern flair to a simply stated cake. Our friend Sarah called it the "Southern Bell Cake"! The cake inside the beautifully smooth fondant was red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream.
The second is a top cake for our cupcake stands decorated with piping reminiscent of paisley with tiny teal rice paper butterflies. This pretty cake is perfect for a little girl, sweet 16 or even a bridal shower. We can even add a couple of booties on top for a baby shower.
To satisfy everyone's sweet tooth we brought along a devilish chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and fresh raspberries which we call "Pink Polka Dot Cake" along with vanilla butter cupcakes and lemon cupcakes-- YUM!
Thank you, Mimi, for a successful event!
