Sherylin's Rustic Rose

Such an honor to make a cake for our two best friends for their wedding.  I was able to consult with Sheryl to determine favorite desserts and styles, but she basically gave me creative license.  And Kevin made the slab a wood with a little help from Mother Nature. 

The flavors for the bottom tier were inspired by Kevin's favorite dessert, Apple Pie. I made fresh apple cake with a caramel~rum filling.  The middle layer was a lemonade cake with homemade fresh lemon curd filling and the top tier was White Velvet with Raspberry Cheesecake filling.

You can see this 3 tier could easily feed over 100 people, but I am so happy to report it was devoured by 44 leaving the top layer for the Bride & Groom. The favorite's were the lemonade cake from the bride's side and apple pie cake on the groom's side.

  1. Lori is the best friend a girl could ever ask for. She assisted me through the whole wedding planning - helping me with visualizing how I wanted the venue decorated and even spent hours shopping with me. Not only did Lori make the most beautiful wedding cake I've ever seen and decorate the cake table, our guests were raving fans and couldn't quit talking about how nummy the cakes were. There was literally only a few pieces left at the end of the evening...and there were only 44 people there! Lori was key in making our wedding the most magical day of our lives. Words can never express our love for her.

    This cake was the most amazing & beautiful wedding cake I had ever seen! I have dreams about that lemon curd :) We are honored to be having you as our official baker for our very own cake! You should definitely just open your own bakery so we can all enjoy your treats on a daily basis.....which would totally conflict with many New Year's resolutions....but who cares? Lemon curd. Fruit group!!

  3. I was one of the Guest at this Amazing Loving Wedding, the CAKE was one of most beautiful cakes I have seen in a very long time. I am crazy about Lemon, I don't often eat sweets, but this one could NOT be passed up, it was so moist, flavor full and yummy. I also love Apple Pie and that Cake flavor did not disapoint, I had never had a cake like that, made it hard to decided which one my favorite. Just looking at the Cake and how it was put together, you could see ALL THE LOVE THAT WENT INTO IT. LORI YOU ROCKED IT. Can't wait to taste the next one.
