The 2 day Bridal Extravaganza is over! And let me say, this was by far the best show I have ever been too! I had such a blast...and I'm exhausted! But, in a good way! We met some wonderful new pros in the wedding industry and of course, we chatted it up with the old ones too! And the brides...what fun they were! We had a blast getting to know them and learning all about their ideas for their weddings. We have some fun weddings ahead.
With all the happenings going on in our booth, we never got to leave it! But let me share with you all the excitement in our little neck of the woods!
The mock cakes! We introduced 3 new cakes and they were a hit! Our corset cake was a favorite among brides, as it has been for many shows! Brides ooed and ahhed over the criss cross pattern with a simple pop of rhinestone and pearl. Our new gold ruffle cake was a show stopper and many brides inquired about that design. The sunflower cake, a traditional favorite, was admired by some wonderful couples. And our surprise of the show....our suspended cake sure did draw a lot of attention. The elegant design at the top of the cake is a classy, traditional look. Add the rhinestone border at the bottom of each tier and it creates a romantic dessert for your guests.
Brides came with their photos in hand! And the most popular cake I saw...the naked cake! Yes, my suspicion was correct. The naked cake is making a comeback!
The taste! There is nothing more pleasing to a baker than watching the eyes of a bride light up when they taste our cakes! Followed by, "you have got to try this!"
The dates! Our calendar is booking up fast! As every year there are some dates that are super popular. Let me share with you some of those dates we heard. If you are getting married on one of those dates, book now! They will be gone soon! February 14th, March 28-29th, April 18-19, May 2-3rd and 16th, June (pretty much the entire month), July 18th, September 26th, October (again...all of October)!
Our biggest hit...the introduction of our Grand Tasting! Brides are super excited about our first ever Grand Tasting! And so are we! On Jan. 20th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm we will be opening up Chateau on the Creek and throwing the cake party of the year! We will be offering 8 of our most popular cake flavors for you to taste! Our mock cakes will also be on display decorated and staged just like a real wedding cake! Our TABC certified bartender will be available with our signature drink of the evening for you to enjoy! Come! And Eat Cake!
