Hydrangea wedding cake

By bmichellebakeshop

B. Michelle Bake Shop is working on building up our wedding portfolio. With limited wedding orders at this time, we’re pouring our creative juices into model wedding cakes. Fun! Which allows us to introduce this lovely wedding cake:

 

Hydrangea wedding cake

 

Using my own wedding bouquet as inspiration, we made this simple buttercream wedding cake, adorned with alternating layers of full, gorgeous bunches of green and white hydrangeas. This would be just as pretty with any other color of hydrangea (or another type of flower, for that matter!). The bottom cake layer is trimmed with a pearl buttercream border, and the cake board is trimmed with shimmery taupe ribbon.
Green hydrangeas hold a place close to my heart – I used them in my own wedding bouquet, nearly 3 years ago. My entire wedding was very DIY – I made a bulk, wholesale order for various fresh flowers and the bridesmaids and I used some of the flowers to make our own bouquets two nights before the wedding. Arranging your own wedding bouquet means you get exactly what you want – plus, why let someone else have all the fun of making your flower arrangements?!? I am still in love with my wedding bouquet – a collection of green hydrangeas, white spider mums, and small white roses. Le sigh. :)

If this lovely hydrangea wedding cake would strike the fancy of anyone you know, pass it along! Half the battle is getting the word out. :)

Thanks, friends!

St. Patty’s Day cake!

By bmichellebakeshop

Hello friends! Congratulations for almost making it through this awful, bitterly-cold winter. Spring is almost here, woot woot! St. Patrick’s Day is also right around the corner, a holiday I’m not entirely sure why we celebrate – but it signals the coming of Spring and is a good enough reason to replenish your liquor cabinet, so no complaints here. :)
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we are breaking out the booze and, for a limited time, are offering Guinness stout chocolate cake (or cupcakes!). This cake is over-the-top rich and decadent – filled and frosted with mint Bailey’s Irish cream buttercream (naturally colored!), covered with Jameson Irish whiskey-spiked chocolate ganache, and topped with a naturally-colored green shamrock. A non-alcoholic version can also be made to order. We think the frosting alone is one of the tastiest concoctions to come out of B. Michelle Bake Shop – yum!
To top it off, B. Michelle Bake Shop is offering a 25% off discount for any order of Guinness stout chocolate cake or cupcakes that is placed now through Sunday, March 9. Click here for more details and pricing information. Get this sweet deal while you can, we promise you won’t regret it!

 

 

Have a happy and safe St. Patty’s Day!
Best,
Brittany Michelle
