Jennifer and Jacob

I just got my favorite thing in the mail today...bubble wrap envelope! This can only mean one thing, an awesome bride just sent me pictures from her wedding. Here's a few choice shots from Jennifer and Jacob's wedding. We made them a love-bird topped chocolate and gold wedding cake, and finished the guests' collective sugar-high with a candy table.

Couldn't help but post a couple photos of them, they're so adorable. Thanks to Serendipity Photography for capturing the day so beautifully.

Don't you just love when they match?

When you do the kind of crazy custom stuff that we do over here at Gateaux, there can be an whole lotta' clashing cakes in one fridge in any given week. But every once in a while, the cake gods smile down upon us, and for no apparent reason, there is refrigerator harmony, even with three wedding cakes in there! This was one of those rare weeks.

While all three weddings were quite unique in their own style, they looked really cool together in our humble Coldtech fridge.

Here's a shot of Alison and Toby's Casino themed reception cake (married in Vegas, if you hadn't guessed). Also, Lacey's beautifully graphic, ultra chic cherry blossom look and Michelle's over the top guilded (yes, that's edible gold) number.

Okay, okay, the football helmet cake didn't quite fit the fridge motif for the week, but it was a damn good surprise to Michelle's CSU-crazy groom!

Jennifer had the most wonderful, vibrant pallette for her wedding. We sketched her cake several different ways, and colored it in as a white cake with two tone purple flowers, but it just didn't capture her style. A purple cake with white flowers, however...
