Today is the last day of November, 2011. Where did this year go? Something Sweet by Michelle has been so busy that I have no clue what happened to the last six months. It seems that just yesterday we were planning to do this amazing wedding cake for Tatiana and Josh who had a destination wedding in Northampton, Massachusetts on June 17. They were such a beautiful couple who met and lived in California for 10 years before deciding to get married at her parents' home in Western Massachusetts. Just before the wedding, they relocated to London, England where Josh's family and their family business is.
We received the referral from Lauren and Ruthie of Eutopia Events in Northampton. Lauren and Ruthie are wonderful to work with. I first met them a couple of years ago when they coordinated my niece, Sasha's wedding at the Cape. These girls really know how to plan a party!
Elisabeth Millay was the photographer for Tatiana and Josh. Kudos Elisabeth on an AWESOME job!
Tatiana and Josh's cake was five square tiers with two inch risers in between to leave enough space to place all of their sugar flowers. We made them to match the colors in her bridesmaids dresses (shades of peach, pink, cream and white). We made English garden roses, vendella roses, Sahara roses, peonies, sweet peas, hydrangea, rose buds and calla lilies.
By the way, the fabric for Tatiana's blush pink wedding gown and her bridesmaids' dresses were manufactured at Josh's family's factory in England. How cool is that?
Our annual winter tasting event, better known as our "Wedding Open House" is scheduled for Saturday, January 21, 2012 with a snow date of Sunday, January 22, 2012 at the beautiful Tuckerman Hall, a symphony hall located in Worcester, Massachusetts. As in year's past, the event is hosted by Something Sweet by Michelle, Struck Catering, Tuckerman Hall and Cookie Creatives by Jennifer. We usually have a florist, a photographer or two and a disk jockey on hand, just in case couples are still undecided about their vendors. If you are interested in attending this event, please contact one of these vendors either by phone or email and you will be added to our guest list.
I also would like to schedule a sugar flower class for sometime in January which would end in March or April, depending on when the start date would be. Anyone interested in taking this class should contact me at email@example.com. I limit my class size to 8 people per course.
That's all the news for now. Enjoy the remainder of your week and I'll write again next week!
