Leah and Matt's Wedding

Amy Brace

As some of you know and maybe some of you do not know... I officially started my business in May. Yup, May of 2014. So, I'm just a newbie, but no worries I've been baking as long as I can remember. I also tried starting my business in 2011, but then had my daughter. Business put on hold till now. And I am going for it with gusto!

So! My very first wedding was on Labor Day Weekend at The Depot in downtown Minneapolis. Such a gorgeous venue. And the way Leah had it decorated was incredible. Elegant and breathtaking. The tables, flowers,  and all the little details made all the difference.

And of course my favorite part, getting to see the pictures of the cake cutting! And the special request from the bride? "I want the whole cake covered in cream cheese frosting and I want to be able to stick my finger in it so no one will notice" THE BEST! Ha! So excited for all the weddings I have done this year so far, but I will always remember my first official wedding.  

I also learned quite a bit about stacking my insulated carriers. I was so excited to use the two of them together with the dolley to wheel them around I didn't really think about the difference in weight between them. I made it up the curb, over the five thresholds on the various hard floors with the help of a very kind man, and then he had to leave to do other very important things. And then I saw it. The carpet. It was a test of the new dolley. Passed with flying colors. And then the door that opened towards me going into the reception area. I couldn't find anyone but guests so I knew I was on my own. I held the door open with my hip and tried to pull the carriers towards me, but I had put the heavy carrier on top and the whole thing started tipping over! My heart was beating like crazy and felt like it was in my throat. I let out a little yelp. I managed to keep it upright and everything inside was still in tact. What. A. Rush.

After the almost tipping over fiasco, setting up was a breeze. Got on my gloves and got to work. I got the cake put together and finished frosting it, and then placed flowers on top for a gorgeous finish. Everything was set up and ready for the bride and groom! 

I had so much fun baking for Leah and Matt's wedding. I learned so much and I'm so honored to have been a part of it. Thanks so much to Leah and Matt and cheers to married life!
