Wedding "Save-the-Dates"

"Save-the-Dates" have become a standard in wedding planning the past few years. They are a great way to let the intended guests know to save the date in their calendar.  
I've seen them in many different forms...magnets, coasters, postcards, stickers, and emails...but, nothing beats a delicious sugar cookie!!  Let's face it, a yummy cookie is much more memorable than a piece of paper that will get lost in the "junk drawer"  :)

These cookies were made in the shape of Texas because of the large number of out-of-state guests to be invited. They were given as party favors for everyone at the engagement party.  
Your cookies can be customized to match any theme or color you want!

Groom's Cake for a Watch Dealer

This surprise groom's cake was made for a watch dealer for Breitling watches. The bottom tier represents the yellow watch box. The Breitling logo and name was hand painted with food color gel mixed with water. The top tier is covered in white fondant and is showcasing the edible Breitling watch sitting atop the cake. 

The bride sent me this very sweet note after the wedding :
"...his cake could not have been anymore fabulous!!!!!!  It was PERFECT!  he was so surprised and LOVED IT!  He's already sent a pic to his Breitling rep and their whole company is crazy over it too! Thank you so so much!  The cake exceeded my expectations - just so perfect!!!!!..."
