A wedding to remember...

One of my best friends, Sarah, got married this past December.  I was lucky enough to get to do all of her cakes and desserts for the reception and gift bags. It was the biggest order I've ever done, and it was so amazing and wonderful to get to be a part of Sarah and Jeffs' special day.

My frIend, Ashley Rutland, who owns Ashley Rutland Photography, did the photos for the wedding.  She is an amazing photographer in the DFW area and if you're around here you should really check her out!

Ashley had a friend of hers, a blogger named Kim, do a write up of the wedding.  Kim's an amazing mom, wife, and blogger, and you can read her blog here at:

I wanted to share her write up with you.  It really encompasses the atmosphere and feeling of the wedding, and Sarah and Jeff as well!!

Winter weddings always seem to capture a certain type of elegance that can only be enhanced by the magic of the season. High School sweethearts, Sarah and Jeff, took this magic and simplistic elegance and transformed it into something that truly made their wedding nothing short of a fairy tale.
The holiday season always makes me nostalgic. It embraces tradition, family, friends and love into this special festive time of year. How appropriate that Sarah and Jeff decided to choose their December 14th wedding date as their day truly captured the love that is felt between lovers, family, and friends.  The intimacy felt among the wedding guests enhanced the love and excitement of the event at the Stonegate Mansion in Fort Worth.  I was blown away by the beauty of their venue: not only did it foster that atmosphere of intimacy, but its elegance enhanced the details so carefully chosen by the couple.  Its years and years of history made it a unique but perfect choice for their wedding.
The personal and intimate aspects of the day didn’t stop with the venue.  The ceremony incorporated carefully selected  details: from a hilarious family friend officiating the ceremony, to the sweet details in their vows, and their processional to Florence and the Machine. The guests enjoyed every moment, and I did too!

At the reception, the intimacy of the day’s preparations took on new form as beloved friends were able to showcase their talents.  Sarah’s best friend Jennifer, a talented baker, made not one, but seven individual cakes to celebrate the occasion.  Jennifer’s son was the MC and kept the guests entertained all night long. Reata catered in a fantastic dinner, which everyone declared to be one of the best they had ever eaten.  Sarah and Jeff treated their guests to even more of Jennifer’s delicious baking, giving all of them individual chevron cookies and wine glasses as favors.  It was the perfect sweet treat to top off the night!

Drinks, dancing, and well wishes for a happily ever after were showered with a sparkler finale exit, as the happy couple made their way to their limousine (which subsequently took them straight to Whataburger for a late night snack!).  It was a magical day and a fantastic evening that perfectly captured the happy, laid back couple.

Jeff and Sarah, thank you for allowing me to capture your memories! May you always be surrounded by friends, may your memories continue to be sweet, and may the magic of your wedding day follow you forever!

Congratulations Sarah and Jeff, on your first 6 months of marriage, and if your life together is as half as fun and unique as your wedding and reception, you guys are going to have one heck of a time! I can't wait to watch it all!!  I love you both!!

Happy baking,


  1. Oh wow, what great wedding memories! I am so pleased to see these wedding pictures. Well, my sister is also going to get married at some outdoor Seattle venues and we are so busy these days in the wedding arrangements. I hope she will have a dream wedding ceremony!!

Favorite Cakes of 2014

2014 was a crazy year for me over here at Sugar Cubed Bakery.  I technically "started" the bakery in 2013, so I had a registered bakery name and got my food handler's license, but I didn't start getting the home bakery out to the public until early 2014.  I needed that year to sort of get my bearings, get comfortable with my work and techniques, figure out what to charge, and how to manage my time etc.  I didn't want to rush into taking a bunch of orders and get overwhelmed. So after a year of "growing", I started the website, along with social media, and never looked back. So when I decided to do a "Favorites of 2014", I was surprised that all of these cakes were in 2014. It feels like ALOT longer than a year ago or less that I made them.  So much has happened since then. And yes I know it is almost April and everyone else's BEST of 2014s were put out in January...  I'm still catching up people! lol  Just be happy I'm bloggin

Why are there not more hours in the day?

How do people do it?  I see all of these amazing women on instagram every day and they look perfect, their kids look perfect, their houses look perfect, their businesses are bigger than mine, and they do it all with a huge smile on their face.  Sometimes I can't get out the front door without the kids having WWIII, dropping my purse, dropping my phone, and at least someone (usually me) crying in the process. Maybe it's easy to look perfect when all people are seeing is a photo glimpse into our lives once or twice a day.  But sometimes it just seems that I am hanging on by a thread.  I guess the grass is always greener on the other side, I remember when my kids were small and everyone constantly asked me, "How do you do it???" I have 4 kids.  My oldest, he is 17.  I have twin boys who are 12, and the baby girl is just about to turn 11.  Yes, I had 3 in diapers at one time.  Yes, I know what causes babies lol.  I remember constantly being asked, "How do you do
