The Wedding Cafe: 10th Anniversary Celebration

The Wedding Café recently celebrated their 10th anniversary with a big bash at the Ward Theatres.  And what celebration wouldn’t be complete without a cake?  The evening started off with a casual, bistro café setup with lots of earthy brown and greens (from their current logo) for a color palate.

For this setup we created a family of cakes – 5 individual cakes to be exact (a mixture of Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Filling and Devils Food Chocolate Cake with Oreo Cookies N Cream Filling), and Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing.  The cakes were all finished with textured buttercream (rosette, ruffle, stucco, vertical and horizontal stripe patterns) in an ivory, off-white and white color scheme, with different logos on each cake, representing the evolution of the Café from the past 10 years.

From there, guests were escorted into the theatres for the program.  One of the neat things they did was introduce everyone to the original owners of the Café, and honor them for the creation of The Wedding Café.

While everyone was inside, they flipped the outside area and turned it into an after-party, complete with gorgeous uplighting, a dance floor – everything was so sparkly and pretty!  For this setup we created one big grand cake – a 4-tier white on white fondant cake.  We envisioned a cake with lots of texture and movement, and somewhat wedding-like, since it is The Wedding Café.

The cake was topped with a whimsical chandelier with hanging drop crystals, followed by a layer with subtle white pearl detail and TWC’s currently logo (the fork and spoon).  The next layer was white on white, with textured, pearlized sugar flowers and leaves, and the bottom layer consisted of a faux tier of ruffled rose petals.  Each tier was separated by a double row of Swarovski rhinestone crystal bands.

Congratulations to The Wedding Café for 10 wonderful years of business – we wish you many more!
