Here are my notes:
Some brides exhaust themselves running around to places and miss out on the joy of planning the celebration. This is an important event, but its a wedding; its not a marriage.There are some really beautiful pictures of her making sugar flowers. I would love to spend a few hours in her kitchen! Then we would go get coffee and I would soak up all her stories about over the top weddings and demanding brides. Visit her website for some of her most jaw dropping designs.
I don't believe in compromising on quality. If I couldn't have a giant perfect diamond, I'd take a little perfect diamond. Competing with your neighbor over who had the bigger wedding is silly. Do it smaller, do it finer, do it well.
I encourage clients to choose seasonal things whenever possible- a strawberry in January isn't going to be as lovely as one in June. Even though our cakes are pretty, I want them to taste like food- delicious food.
If the reception is in a clean, modern room or a grand, rococo one, the cake should follow suit. You don't want it to look like the cake was delievered to the wrong party.
