A Tale of Two NYE’s

It’s hard for me to remember what I had for dinner last night, much less remember which cake I delivered one year ago.  But when it’s a New Year’s Eve cake as beautiful as the those we’ve delivered the past two years, it’s not so hard.

Working in the cake biz means working on a lot of the major holidays.  People tend to gather to celebrate on these occasions and New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays to deliver on.  For the 8th year in a row, I found myself delivering a wedding cake on December 31st.  And this year’s cake didn’t disappoint!

This cake was for a NYE Wedding held downtown and coordinated by the fabulous Mary Fencl Events.  This cake was delivered to a series of connected tents in the Deco District of Tulsa’s downtown.  We provided cake for 300 including this main cake.

This four-tiered cake was covered in white fondant and embellished with a variety of black and gold fondant accents.  We created patterns and fans to coordinate with the Art Deco theme that was present throughout the reception.  We bordered each tier with gold fondant pearls to finish the look.

For NYE 2017, we delivered a similarly themed cake to The Springs near Skiatook Lake.  This one was also black, white and gold for a Gatsby themed wedding.  This cake, however, was iced in buttercream and embellished with black and gold fondant accents. The border on the bottom tier was my favorite part with piped buttercream, edible pearls and fondant flourishes.  The fondant starburst on the top tier was also fun to create, which was accented with wafer paper feathers.

I can’t wait to see what I’ll be delivering on December 31, 2019!
