When people who love art get together, it's a beautiful thing.
Lauren and Mark asked me to be apart of their brunch wedding this past summer. They are not only phenomena;l artists, but they're a pair of dear friends, (and avid fans of my almond cake).
Working with creative people is always such a dream because the process of designing a menu is just as enjoyable as seeing their faces cut the cake on their wedding day. We worked together to come up with desserts that would fit with their brunch-themed wedding in Frankfurt, Kentucky. The almond cake was on their checklist, but so was creating a magnificent crepe cake that we collaborated on; a delicious mocha crepe cake.
Being apart of this process is always a dream. And getting to see the end result of our hard work is a true joy.
I love being able to see into a person's personality by the way that they eat. Whether slow and particular, or blindly diving into the first bite, we all have a particular way of eating that I think is a window into our souls. And what a better way to see the true happiness of newlyweds than their first bite of cake?
