Many Thanks to our Customers for a Successful First Carry-out Holiday Meal!

Every year we would receive numerous calls requesting that we cook Thanksgiving meals. In the past, at First Fruits bakery  we have only offered dessert pick-ups. So, this year I decided to try offering full meals for carry-out. Wow! Many thanks go out to the hundreds of folks sitting down to our food and desserts today, this Thanksgiving. What an honor to be a part of so many families Thanksgiving meal! And for those who may consider ordering next year for Thanksgiving, I am including some photo’s of the food that was offered this holiday.

The artwork for the images on this wedding cake were freehand drawings submitted by Sarah the bride. The drawings transferred to  an edible image sheet and then I applied them to the cake. Sarah selected a spice cake flavor with maple butter cream under the fondant frosting, this selection was a great pre-holiday flavor! Sarah and Brian chose a menu selected from www.cheftonycatering.com, the Garnet package which includes Shrimp, Smoked Salmon, Rosemary Beef Roast, Cheddar Sausage Balls, Mexican layered Dip, Mushroom Brushetta, Chicken Pasta Alfredo, and Fresh Fruit Fondue. Thank You Sarah and Brian for allowing us to be a part of such a special wedding celebration!

2009 054Many thanks to Janna Fowler with All About Weddings for an extremely smooth wedding day event! When you first mentioned that Karen and Mike wanted a wedding dinner serving grilled beef tenderloin (my favorite) I knew I wanted to be a part of this wedding day. And Mike and Karen , thank you for your great wedding cake designs . I enjoyed draping the fondant frosting to resemble cloth material. I had fun shopping for the Vandella Ivory Roses mixed with the Eskimo white roses. If I were not a full time caterer and bakery, I would consider becoming a florist. For some fabulous photos see the blog at www.terriswaggertyportraiture.com, now that’s great photography!!! This November wedding was “Sweet Magnolia”.

Thanks Gabi and Grant for the opportunity to cater your dinner reception and for the opportunity to do this amazing wedding cake. I have to admit that I was skeptical in pulling this cake off, until I found a source for these European chocolate molds. After molding the chocolate, the cake detail work just fell into place. The venue along with your army of decorators/florist/friends made this wedding absolute “Autumn Perfection”.
