Happy, Happy New Year ~ we hope you had a wonderful Holiday! This note is later than I intended it to be ~ I just wanted to let you know how much we LOVED our wedding cake!!! Walking into the reception ~ my FAVORITE thing was seeing the outcome of our cake – I was blown away!! The topic of the evening was whether the Magnolia was real or not, as far as the sweetgrass design went, all our guests assumed it was real.
The funniest part was while Brian and I were about to cut the cake – he leans over and says "how are we suppose to cut around this basket?"…this coming from a groom who was pretty involved with the wedding process and was well aware that the sweetgrass weave would be frosting…I mumbled "it's all frosting" only to have him respond "well, the cake is, but what are we suppose to do about this basket?" ~ so kudos, not only for fooling our guests, but the groom as well ☺
We somehow were able to keep the top tier (even, though numerous guests admitted to having MULTIPLE pieces of cake)…Our plan was to keep it frozen for our first anniversary ~ I am saddened to say that the last piece was eaten last night – it would have been a shame to keep that thing frozen for a year! We will definitely be ordering a small replica for our One Year!
Oh, the cake was complete bliss – our guests are still commenting on how incredibly beautiful it was as well as how amazing it tasted! It truly was perfection!! Thank you for making a wedding cake that fit us perfectly ~ I will be bragging about that cake for years to come and will be sure to tell EVERYONE I know that Ashley Bakery is the only bakery to have make your wedding cake!
Again, everyone at Ashley Bakery was wonderful to work with ~ thanks for ALL that you did!
