Shantel & Parker

I loved this wedding cake table that I did for Shantel and Parker’s wedding last month.  I’m always so excited to make multiple cakes for a reception because who doesn’t want more cake?!  Also I love when brides ask for sugar succulents.  I’m kind of in love with them right now.  And Shantel wanted THREE of them!

Lilac Cake

Can I just start off by saying that I love lilacs, like a ridiculous amount.  I’m obsessed with them.  I especially love my next door neighbors lilac bush.  They are the prettiest shade of plum purple.  So when they finally started to bloom in early May I ran over, cut some (with permission), and stuck them on this cake!

I love the color combination of the mint and the purple too.  Everyone is doing the coral and mint combo right now so I thought it would be fun and different to try this combination.  Let’s start a new trend!  What do you think?  I LOVE it!

I had to pair this cake with some purple French Macarons too.  Just because.

Sydney & Michael

Simple Succulent Cake and Naked chocolate and vanilla Groom's Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design.  The Succulents are made out of sugar!

Sydney is my cousin and I could not even begin to tell you how awesome she is.  She is beautiful and so talented.  She sings and plays the piano in a band called The National Parks.  They are so good.  Anyway, when Sydney got engaged and asked me to make her wedding cake I was thrilled.

Syd and Mike wanted different cakes, which was so fun for me to do.  Syd wanted a simple white cake with very few succulents on it and buttercream that just barely had a texture to it.  Also it had to be chocolate cake with Oreo filling because I’ve never met anyone who loves Oreos like Sydney does.  Cookies and Cream is her favorite.  Mike wanted a chocolate and vanilla Naked Cake with caramel dripping down the sides.  So instead of making a compromise on which cake they should do I told them we could do both!

The succulents on Sydney’s cake were made out of sugar.  Which everyone knows I love to do.  I loved these succulents because of the color variation in the center.  The inside is a pale yellow that turns into green then ends with the purple tips.  I loved how these little guys turned out.

I think both cakes turned out perfectly.  I am so glad that I got to be a part of Sydney and Michael’s big day.  And Im so excited to have Mike join our family!  Congratulations you two!

Kristi’s Naked Chocolate Raspberry Cake

Naked Chocolate and Raspberry Wedding Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

This is a naked cake.  I’m calling it a naked cake because it’s NAKED!  I love that the only buttercream on the cake is found between each layer of cake and not all over it.  And I know I say this about all of my cakes after I’m finished with them but I’m totally serious about this one.   It. Is. My. Favorite.  I love that it doesn’t look like a typical wedding cake.  I love the contrast between the dark chocolate color of the cake and the pink fresh raspberry buttercream.  I love the fresh blackberries.  The fresh flowers were gorgeous and the smell of this cake was unreal.  Trust me, this cake smelled incredible.  It was also my heaviest cake to date.  I don’t know for sure how much it weighed, but I wouldn’t have been surprised to find out it weighed 50 lbs.

Here are some beautiful photos by the lovely Cassidy Tuttle.

Chase & Carlie’s Lace Wedding Cake

Flower Lace Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

I made this cake for my cousin Chase and his wife Carlie.  We thought it would be really pretty to match the lace of the cake with the lace on her dress so that is what we did.  I think it turned out really beautiful.  I love the white lace on the cream buttercream.  It really makes the lace pop.

Carlie wanted all three of the tiers to be different flavors.  So the bottom was red velvet cake with vanilla bean buttercream filling.  The middle tier was lemon cake with raspberry buttercream filling and the top tier was vanilla cake with lemon buttercream filling.

I love making cakes for friends and family members because I get to be there when they cut the cake.  Without fail, every time I am at the reception when they cut the cake people always ask me if it makes me sad to see it cut into.  I always tell them no!  I love to see it get eaten.  The cake should be cut and served to the guests, that’s the fun part!  I love when the whole cake gets eaten.  It means that people loved it!

Thanks to Chase and Carlie for letting me have a part in their special day.  This was one of my favorites.

Sitting Pretty Cookies

Sitting Pretty Cookies by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

Every Easter my family makes these cookies for our family BBQ at Grandma’s house.  Who am I kidding, we make them whenever we get a chance to.  They are sooooo good.  Technically this kind of cookie is called a thumbprint cookie.  But we call them Sitting Pretty Cookies at my house.  My mom got the recipe from a woman in our ward when we lived in San Diego.  The woman wouldn’t give her the recipe for the longest time.  My mom had to beg her one last time right before we moved to Utah and she finally gave it to her.  But only after she made my mom promise not to give it to anyone…they are that good.

Buttercream Rose Cake

Buttercream Rose Wedding Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

This cake was for my friend Michelle’s wedding this past January.  This was a huge 4 tier cake.  She wanted chocolate cake and mint frosting and lots of flowers.  I think it turned out really pretty.  And it was so fun to see Michelle and Taylor cut into it!  I don’t usually get to see my cakes ripped apart and served.  But because Michelle is one of my best friends I was there the whole night.  I loved to see everyone eating it.Buttercream Rose Wedding Cake by Cassidy Budge Cake Design

Coconut Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

If I was on death row, and I had to pick one thing to eat as my last meal, this would be it for sure.  These cupcakes are so good that people dream about them, literally people have dreams about them.  The cream cheese frosting has a little bit of lime juice in it and makes the frosting extra delicious. Coconut Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Cassidy Budge Cake Design
