Sweet Tradition

One of the sweetest traditions of a wedding reception is the cutting of the cake, which of course involves feeding one another cake.   How romantic is that?  Our wedding cake was a nutty version of Strawberry Shortcake, luscious almond cake layered with whipped cream and strawberries.  Cloaked in vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream.  We most certainly had a gluten-free option for the groom and all of those gluten-free bellies out there!  T's favorite, my chocolate cupcakes with a fat dollop of vanilla buttercream. YUM!

Gorgeous Dahlias from our local farmer were a simple and colorful garnish to our homemade wedding cake.
