Natalie, the Cake Fairy, stopping by


Hello everyone,

Natalie here again, talking about a sweet topic. Hee-hee. Pun intended.

But before we talk wedding cakes, let’s talk kids. Particularly my kids, Rose and Lily. Last week, they sneaked into the kitchen and made a mess but they were so proud of trying to help that I could barely scold. They both know the kitchen is serious business, though, so I hope that doesn’t happen again.

Now, let me catch you up on some of the odd goings-on around the offices of the Wedding Belles. Regina, my very close friend and the Belle’s photographer is glowing brighter than some of the shoes she wears. I mean, even brighter than she did when she and Dell realized what all of us knew anyway-that they were madly in love. I’m starting to get suspicious that something really, really important is going on.

Secondly, my boss and mentor, Belle is spending a lot more time with Charles Wiley than it takes to sell off an old car. She swears she could never love another man the way she loved her late husband, but Charlie’s a pretty nice guy and Belle is kind of glowing herself. Hmm. The love bug is sure busy around here. Glad I’ve been immunized!

Okay, now let’s talk cakes for just a minute while I’m waiting for a scrumptious Italian Crème to finish baking. (The twins are in their room playing restaurant. Guess which one owns the place?) One of my favorite things to do is cruise cake designers online. Do you ever do that? For brides who are on the look-out for that perfect wedding cake design, this is a great way to get ideas. Many cake fairies have photos of their work, along with the descriptions. Some even include price, a great help in making the right decision, because the cost per slice can run anywhere from $3.00 to $22.00 or more! No wonder the ‘average’ wedding costs $15,000.
Pink and brown are very hot wedding colors right now. Isn't this gorgeous? What colors did you or will you have at wedding?

Off to check my blood sugar.

Until next time, “Let them eat cake!”

Natalie, the cake fairy

Actually I had one color which was a light green. I told them I wanted green flowers on my cake but I guess they didn't believe me because they looked more yellow than green. I did the same with the florist who was to die some white roses and you couldn't tell the green there either.

My cake was covered with orangy-pink tropicana roses..real ones on top and candy ones on the side. I would never go back to my peach bridesmaids dresses but loved my cake.

Hang in there Natalie. My sister is a diabetic who makes us Christmas candy every year...you self sacrificing diabetics who make others happy deserve some happiness yourselves!

Peace, Julie

My cake was a basket weave, solid white with daisy's placed all over it...I wish I could have a cake like that every day. Each layer was a different flavor and I strongly suggest mixing it up so all of your guests can enjoy some wedding cake.

A white cake with small pink flowers should be classic and elegant!
