Shades of Pink!

Yesterday Amy drove us to Montpelier to see the Cake class at NECI to see the Wedding Cakes the students had made.  Erin's was of course the most beautiful, and by far the yummiest.  The theme she was given was shades of pink.  This was harder for her than you might think..........Pink was her favorite color when she was teeny, but not anymore!!  Tiffany blue took over years ago.

Here is the cake she made, with her standing behind it so you can see the wire she bent into the shape of "LOVE":


This is her set-up on pink with flowers on the table and champagne in the flutes.

After we had a chance to appreciate all the work that went into the cakes, she removed the top layer,



Then, her Chef  showed her how to cut it for us to taste!!  Woo-hoo!



Here are the other cakes with their themes:

The Beach

Ombre green (He had to make the bow 25 times before it came out right!


Shades of Blue


Peach?



Chef gave the the remainder of the bottom layer (four cake layers and the filling was raspberry cream cheese!!) to us to take home for those who couldn't go !!

After the tasting we went to Erin's apartment to wait for her, out for lunch(!), shopping, then the 3 hour ride home, part of which was in a DELUGE!!  

Thanks for looking.

P.S.  I should have added that also along for the tasting was her boyfriend Nick and Terri, his mother.  Nick doesn't like sweets (can you imagine???), but he did take a taste and approved of her work!!

  5. Thanks for sharing the photos, Anne. Being me, my favourite is the beach one but I am pretty impressed with the piping and decorating work on Erin's - plus when it comes to eating, I'm not a big fan of those icings like pastillage and fondant.
    Raspberry cream cheese filling sounds delicious!!
