One of my best friends, Kym, is an amazing baker and cake decorator. So when she heard we were getting married she generously offered to help us with our special day. She helped me look at wedding and food blogs for months and helped me stay sane:) I think I changed the menu a bizzilion times! But she knew I was set on having as many Dorie recipes as possible so she offered to make Dorie’s sugar cookies with an L monogram. They were the CUTEST cookies I have ever seen!!
We bagged them and tied them with black ribbon. Every place setting got a special L cookie. They really made the tables look great!! And they were tasty too:)
Now onto the cake. Kym is getting her PHd at the U in Molecular Biology so she rarely has time to do cakes, but when she does, WOW!!! She is amazing! When we lived together I saw her in action and I still don’t know how she does it. She is very creative and talented.
So when Kym said she wanted to paint a design on our cake…I said go for it! We knew it would be gorgeous…and gorgeous is right! Our cake was out of this world!
Kym brought it to the reception and I was in awe. It turned out better than expected…and I had high hopes too:)
Isn’t it the best cake ever???
I didn’t want to cut it because it was so pretty…but Kym did make a Dorie cake, so I had to try it:) It was Dorie’s Devils Food with chocolate buttercream. It had mini chocolate chips in the cake too! It was rich, moist, and super tasty!! I am glad we got a taste.
Thanks Kym for all of your hard work! Hopefully someday soon you will have a bakery:)
