Wedding Recap: Our Cake

Recently, many of my clients have been asking for my recommendation for a cake designer and I realized I hadn't given an update here on the blog on how our cake turned out -- thanks to the fabulous, Alison Okabayashi of Two for Two Cakes. (See past posts, Cake Tasting Parts 1 and 2)

Alison baked a two-tiered cake with buttercream frosting for us. Fred loves Reese's Pieces so it was only fitting that the bottom layer was the Peanut Butter Cup, made of  Chocolate Butter Cake, Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting and Salted Peanuts. At our tasting, we were both bowled over by the Aunt Bea’s Banana Cake, made of Banana Cake, Heath Bar Toffee Bits, and Vanilla Butter Cream Cheese Frosting, and decided it would be our top tier. [We have a few friends who are still telling us that the Banana Cake was the best wedding cake they'd ever had!]

I had bought vintage type letter caps ($3 each) that spelled VERA and FRED and Alison tied them together with teal grosgrain ribbon and gray felt heart (the heart was her special touch). Two glittered birds in a nest topped off the design, which also feature swags and dots in charcoal gray. The cake turned out to be super cute, don't you think?

To learn more about Alison, see my interview of her here from 2009>>

Where did you find those vintage type letter caps? those would be perfect for my wedding as well!

And your cake setup is adorable! I love the glittered birds :)

Hi Coco, I got them at a curious shop called the Tail of the Yak in Berkeley. You may be able to order and get them shipped or inquire who the wholesaler is. Good luck!
