Wedding Sweets and Treats

Welcome to another TBT! Today’s is another wedding related one. Last year in May, I emailed two businesses about wedding cakes, one called Sweet Bakery and Cakery, and  the other one called Stiletto Studio Cakes. I had heard amazing things about both places. In June, we went to a tasting at each one.

First, Stiletto Studio Cakes is incredible. They do amazing and creative designs.

We went into the tasting with no idea about what we wanted. We just thought, hey…cake. The tasting was a group one with around 20 people. Everyone milled around trying cake. They had lots of little pieces of different flavoured cakes, as well fillings, icings, examples, and all sorts. The lovely people who worked there asked us what we were thinking for our wedding cake. We wanted something small ish, as we were having a small wedding, we didn’t want a huge cake, as who would eat it all? Other than that, we had no idea. We liked a few flavours (vanilla, and lemon and raspberry stuck out a lot), and said we would email through ideas or any questions we had.

Next, we went to Sweet Bakery and Cakery. They were a smaller business, but just as recommended. They did more ‘naked’ cakes, they looked less ‘spectacular’, but just as beautiful.

Neatly in Order

Neatly in Order

It’s time for another Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, this week’s theme is Order.

Things stacked or put neatly side by side, in rows or columns.

One of my favourite part of going to stores is seeing how neatly everything is organised. If you walk into a store and see a huge pile of clothes or books just thrown everywhere, would you buy or browse there? Probably not. Unless it’s a sale bin or something, then order goes out the window.

Clothes hung up neatly, ordered by brand, colour and size.

Cards and books lined up neatly in piles and rows, which sometimes I will straighten out if I’m browsing around and something strikes me as really out of place.

Bakeries are another place where you can find workers who spend lots of time making the goods line up neat and tidy. I wonder if it bugs them as much as it does me when someone takes bread from the middle of the pile? Maybe just me?

When it comes to my own baking, I try ridiculously hard to make sure they’re all lined up evenly on the tray. Or even when I’m taking the photos of them, I want them to look neat and tidy.

Sometimes you can find order in your family home, where someone will spend ages lining up photos on shelves to make sure they’re all spaced apart evenly, and in good order.

Order just makes what’s on display a lot more appealing, satisfying, and easy to find. But you know just cause one can appreciate order, does that mean every aspect of their life will also be tidy? Well..

Nobody’s perfect right? 🙂
