Butter Cake

Butter Cake

This rich flavourful Butter Cake is perfect for any celebration.

Dean and Heather got married and the weekend was fantastic!

The weather could not have been more perfect, the menu was outstanding, and love was in the air.

I was so excited when I was asked to do the cake, and of course immediately began planning. Because the only thing better then doing a cake, is doing a cake for friends! Trusting friends, who gave me complete design control. The only request was that it be vanilla.


I went with a traditional butter cake with a vanilla buttercream filling. Covered with a vanilla almond flavored marshmallow fondant. Gerbera daisies, traditional daisies, carnations and statice top it of beautifully.

Perfect for an outdoor afternoon wedding.
