Shantel & Parker

I loved this wedding cake table that I did for Shantel and Parker’s wedding last month.  I’m always so excited to make multiple cakes for a reception because who doesn’t want more cake?!  Also I love when brides ask for sugar succulents.  I’m kind of in love with them right now.  And Shantel wanted THREE of them!

Elopement Shoot

I am so excited to share this photoshoot I was a part of earlier this year!  And the best part is that it was featured on Inspired By This!  So exciting.  Polka Dot Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

I loved everything about this shoot from the moody florals to the polka dot dress.

I loved the dress so much I decided to mimic the design onto the cake.  Also I just had to make a sugar Dahlia because they are a favorite of mine.

This team was incredibly talented and I am honored to have worked with them.  Now here are the photos!

Lilac Cake

Can I just start off by saying that I love lilacs, like a ridiculous amount.  I’m obsessed with them.  I especially love my next door neighbors lilac bush.  They are the prettiest shade of plum purple.  So when they finally started to bloom in early May I ran over, cut some (with permission), and stuck them on this cake!

Mint colored Cake with Lilacs and Purple pastry cream filled Macarons by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

I love the color combination of the mint and the purple too.  Everyone is doing the coral and mint combo right now so I thought it would be fun and different to try this combination.  Let’s start a new trend!  What do you think?  I LOVE it!

I had to pair this cake with some purple French Macarons too.  Just because.

Greg & Lisa’s Wedding Cake

White Rose Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

Lisa and Greg were a joy to work with.  Lisa knew exactly what she was looking for for her wedding cake and I loved the idea.  I had made a two tier version of this cake back in December but I think I love the three tier version the best.  Im a sucker for tall cakes and I also love that each tier of this cake was a different flavor.

Im in love with the giant sugar flower and the cascading petals all the way down the side of this cake.  There is something that is so elegant about it.

The flowers and greenery were assembled on top and around the cake after I delivered it to the reception.  I could not believe how cute the two little love birds looked on top of the cake.  I died.  This is one for the books for sure.

Thank you Lisa and Greg for letting me make you wedding cake!
