Bride/Baker Communication 101

Most brides suppose that bringing in a photograph of their dream marriage ceremony cake will assist make clear for his or her bakers what it’s that they need and anticipate on their huge day.

[shaking head] These candy, foolish women.

In actuality, these images are extra like “pointers.” A springboard, if you’ll, from which the baker might or might not spring – after which into heretofore unheard-of realms of creative “expression.”

Maybe some examples will assist.

Bride Laurie S. requested for this cake, solely in ivory and with blue flowers as an alternative of white:

(Photograph & cake by Martha Stewart)

As an alternative, she bought this:

“It is boxy, and it is blue and white. What extra would you like?”

Kirstie additionally needed a cascading floral design, like this:

Which her baker recreated fairly effectively, aside from one key element:

They used actual flowers as an alternative of sugar ones.

As soon as the petals shriveled, Kirstie’s cake design turned much less “cascading flowers” and extra “attacking butterflies.” Which is not horrible, I suppose, however it’s form of onerous to withstand the urge to flap your arms and shoo them off.

(Be aware: The silver factor is their topper, which the baker laid flat as an alternative of standing up. Or perhaps the butterflies simply knocked it over. :D)

Sharon L. needed this attractive topsy-turvy design:

(Made by Lisa’s Inventive Truffles – and I completely need one.)

…solely in 3 tiers and utilizing her colours of fuchsia, orange, and lime.

Her baker’s interpretation?

Do not forget that springboard I discussed? Nicely, some are a LOT springier than others.

And at last, this bride needed her seashell-themed cake to rise to new heights:

As an alternative, she bought one which was apparently dropped from nice heights:

Suppose it was served with a pancake dinner?



P.S. I attempt to solely hyperlink issues I really buy and love myself, and y’all, I’ve THREE of those in our home:

LEVOIT Air Air purifier, True HEPA

 I’ve tried so many air purifiers through the years, and this Levoit is hands-down the very best I’ve discovered. It is available in black or white, is the dimensions of a small waste basket, has an invisible management show, and is splendidly quiet even on Medium. It additionally has the simplest, most satisfying filter to wash: simply flip it over, twist off the underside, and carry out the large drum. We’ve got cats and an outdated home, so each two weeks I take advantage of a mud buster to hoover a superb quarter inch of mud off that drum filter, and ermigersh, SO SATISFYING.

In contrast to huge tower purifiers these are straightforward to tuck into small areas. In case you have mud allergic reactions I extremely advocate one on your bed room! That is what we began with, and now I’ve added two extra in our lounge and again recreation room.
