Chicago Wedding Cake Bakers at The Special Event Show in Chicago

Chicago Wedding Cake Bakers at The Special Event Show in Chicago

On January 17th, seven hundred event professionals attended The Wedding Event for The Special Event Show in Chicago that I Co-Chaired/Produced with Anthony Gowder of Gowder Designs. We featured all of the company names of the amazing sponsors on the blog last week and today I am sharing the wonderful wedding cakes that were baked by local Chicago wedding cake bakers. We told them we wanted them to do whatever they wanted for the design and to show off their amazing talents and that they did!! Not only were the cakes gorgeous to look at in the cocktail hour but also delicious to eat for dessert. Thank you to the amazing Chicago wedding cake bakers for their participation in the incredible  Wedding Event in Chicago.

I saw this company online called Raise the Cake  and I had to share it with my readers. Wow, what a great idea to make your wedding cake that much more special! I love the design and the name of the company. I see so many cakes at weddings that are pretty but just on a white or ivory board with a ribbon flanking it. After seeing these amazing stands I must say I can’t wait to use one of these at one of my client’s wedding. It is the perfect way to design your own stand and dazzle it up however you want. You can use it not only for your wedding cake but also they make one to use for a “cupcake wedding cake” as well. The best part is the clean up, it’s a one time use, just make sure to keep your gems and toss the rest! I think it’s a great way to use your imagination and add the finishing touches to your cake yourself!
