When plotting the shoot I had my heart set on a vintage truck. I just had to have one. So what do I do when I need something seemingly out of reach? I go to the Mr. The Mr. loves a good challenge and more importantly he loves chatting people up. One Sunday a few weeks before the shoot, timing just happened to be on our side as well as an antique car show in town. And at that antique car show, shining like a beacon of light, an old Chevy in my absolute favorite color orange sat owned by the sweetest couple who re-finished it with complete detailed perfection. I don’t know how the Mr. always works his magic, he just always does. So with the truck under our belt, we of course needed the cakes.
I love cakes. I love their beauty, their grandness, and most importantly their deliciousness. And for fall I knew that I wanted a naked cake (uncovered in icing), and preferably something spcie’esque with buttercream of course. It always has to be buttercream. I worked with the talented Anne Kathleen and as we talked we determined one is really never enough, more is more, so three of course would work. Three perfect cakes…all different in look, feel, and taste, but all still all perfectly fit together. Remember we were in the blazing sun, so the red cake began to melt, but I actually think it made it look even more perfect. And the naked cake, well let’s just say that didn’t go to waste…cake for breakfast is a thing you know. Happy Wednesday Loves! truly, MKR
P.S. Don’t forget we’re giving away a Zac Zac Posen bag (up to a $450 retail value)…enter HERE.
