Peek-A-Book Wedding Cutting Cake | Le Festin Events


Sometimes we work with couples who are not very fond of cake, but still love the idea of following tradition. Many times, those couples decide to just add on a cutting cake, almost like an after-thought.

Confession: I LOVE CAKE. If my couple asks me about cake, I always say it is up to them, but personally, I LOVE CAKE. Not only do I have a sweet tooth and do consider myself to be a cake and pastry snob, but I do very much believe that a cake can be made into such a beautiful art piece that it alone would cause conversation.

When Heather and Brandon let us know they wanted "just a small cutting cake", I pretty much batted my eyes and let them know that if they are going to go with "just a small cutting cake", it needs to be something truly worthy of being cut and photographed. I had been obsessing about peek-a-boo cakes for some time and really wanted an opportunity for the right couple to have it at their wedding. H + B of Spreafico Farms were totally game as soon as the idea was floated. THANKS GUYS!

Enter Autumn Cake Design! I can talk to this woman about cake for hours because I know I can throw crazy ideas at her and she'd not only rise to the challenge, but accentuate the outcome to Level 11. A true artist. I had mentioned creating something really fun to cut into and she took it up a notch by making it into a monogram. Although the concept isn't new, it certainly is for weddings and I hope we see more of them in the future! Here are some photos of the cake - enjoy!

Oh - and yes, it was equally delicious!
