The Spectacular Spring Bridal Faire at the Madonna Inn this past Sunday certainly lived up to its name! A large number of brides and grooms showed up to check out the booths, talk to vendors and sample the myriad of tasty treats set out by caterers and bakers. The Cake Cathedral's booth was a buzz of activity for four straight hours and I got to meet some really fun couples looking for cakes that would truly represent their personalities. Congratulations to you all, and I look forward to making some spectacular cakes!

Beach Butlerz, a new Central Coast business, celebrated their grand opening with a beach party at Avila Beach this past Saturday. They asked me to make a cake that would tie in with the general theme....soooooo......this is what I came up with. The cake and 'cuppies' are Chocolate Kahlua with Italian Meringue butter cream. The cake was then covered with a textured blue fondant and decorated with handmade sugar mermaids, royal icing coral, sugar octopus, crab (he's hiding in the back!) and seaweed. The seashells that are on the cuppies were dusted with edible pearl dust.
