Perfect Pair Wedding Cake @ McGovern's Tavern, Fall River, Massachusetts

We created this simply elegant perfect pear cake for the perfect pair for an evening wedding at McGovern's Tavern in Fall River, Massachusetts.

The pears were hand sculpted from sugar paste, being sure that each was just a little different, one being taller than the other just like the bride and groom.

We received this lovely note from the bride:

Hey Meredith!
I know it's been 3 months already, but I just wanted to say thank you for doing such a wonderful job on our wedding cake. It was perfect! From the way it looked to the way it tasted. We absolutely loved it. And all of our guests we impressed as well. I can't wait for another occassion to come up so we can get another cake from you! Thanks again, Meredith. You will see us again!

Take care

NEW! White CupCake Stand: Mini CupCake Stand Holds 18-27 Cupcakes

The Artisan Kitchen's custom designed white wooden cupcake stands have been a staple at the bakery for the past four years, but our customers always asked for a white MINI CupCake stand.

Our master craftsmean has done it again and crafted our new MINI white CupCake Stand. Holding anywhere from 18 to 27 cupcakes, it is the perfect size for children's parties or a small dinner party or even a sweet additon to a candy buffet! It can even be trimmed in grosgrain ribbon for a festive flair.

Unlike the originals this MINI CupCake Tier stores and travels flat and easily assembles in under 2 minutes. It is almost indestructible & can be carried by the top knob or by each tier without having to worry about breakage. Our marine grade material can even be washed in the dishwasher!

Our CupCake Stand Display Tiers are available for rent, please inquire by phone 508.763.4905 or email meredith@theartisankitchen.com

Here is the MINI stand in use these Baby Shower CupCakes feature little peapods and gerbera daisies:

We are proud to carry these stands exclusively, please be aware they are not available for purchase and rental must be accompanied by an order of cupcakes from The Artisan Kitchen.

Baby Shower Cake: Pregnant Lady with Gifts

Wedgewood blue, charteuse green, and dark chocolate brown were on the pallette for this baby shower cake. The invitation included a pregnant lady all dressed up in a frilly dress carrying a stack of gifts complete with purse and baby bottle--and Jody matched her perfectly (you'll see the invitation hung behind the cake)!

The top of the cake was decorated with 5 petal flowers, similar to magnolia blossoms but with chocolate brown centers.

A dark chocolate ribbon wrapped the multi colored striped top cake and was finished with a bow.
