Tara and Travis were married last summer.  As a long time client of mine, it was a privilege to get to make their wedding cake.  They are an amazing couple and they had a celebration that suited them to a T.   No ordinary wedding cake would do…   their showstopper featured their dog Piko.

Because not everyone likes to cut into their best furry friend, we set him on a “leather” bed cake.  And he had to be dressed for the occasion, only a black smoking jacket would do. A pipe completed his ensemble.   As a final personal touch to the couple, the board held two 45 records representing music that holds meaning for them and their relationship.  It was a fun cake to make, and one I’m super proud of.  I thought it was pretty terrific when their wedding and cake were featured on the Green Wedding Shoes blog, but this past Sunday, the cake was featured in the Style section of the New York Times, in an article that heralds the return of the extravagant wedding cake.
