Yet Another Beautiful Wedding at Sherwood Country Club

Sherwood Country Club
This was a modern looking cake with clear acrylic blocks separating the tiers and an acrylic cake stand which allowed you to look under the cake at all the hydrangeas. Hydrangea bunches were placed between the tiers in small bunches but still allowing you to view thru the cake. The cake design was created to tie in with the decorations at the reception. The chairs were clear acrylic and the floral displays were all set in square vases.
Note from the bride:
"Lori Vreeke was my lifesaver. We had to change who was making our cake at the last minute and we were referred to Pastries By Vreeke. Lori's great ideas and enthusiasm to make my modern cake made my mom and I super excited to see the finished product. I absolutely loved the clear blocks separating our tiers it was like nothing I had ever seen before at any other weddings. My husband and I have heard nothing but raves from people who have seen pictures of it. We can't thank you enough Lori, you're the best!" -Chelsea

Busiest Weeks of the Summer!

Whew, this has been two extremely busy weeks working 4 decorators really long hours. In the past two weeks, we have created 7 wedding cakes. I couldn't have done it without the help from Jennifer, Shawna & Lo.

Hope you enjoy checking them out as much as we enjoyed creating them!

We LOVED our wedding cake! It could not have been more beautiful! I wanted it to resemble our invitations and Lori matched it perfectly. The wedding cake was simple and elegant and it went beautifully with our garden themed wedding. The cake tasted amazing as well. I loved Lori's bubbly, fun, genuine, and passionate personality. Thank you Lori for making our day sweet. ~The Shipow's

Note from the Newlyweds:
Oh my goodness Lori! That cake was amazing! I wanted to cry when we had to cut it because it was such a journey to get it all together! We could not have be happier with the final product! You were so fun to work with too! You devoted so much time and care to our vision of a Mario cake and that just meant the world to us!!! Lori, you are simply amazing! (as well as your staff and your supportive family!!!) *The b-day "manga- manga" plant for my Aunt was PERFECT too! Thank you so much!
With all our love, Candace and Skyler

Swarovski Crystal Topper by Toppers with Glitz!

Note from the Newlyweds:
In short, Lori V is a miracle worker. Two weeks before The Big Day, we were told that our venue's pastry chef was no longer going to be working for the country club. Luckily, they handed us over to Lori with good faith that she would be able to create what we wanted. Understandably, we were a bit nervous that Lori only had several days to hear our requests and make it all happen. But I have to say, she floored us! She created an absolute masterpiece. I was literally almost brought to tears when we walked into our reception hall the night of the wedding and saw our gorgeous cake. I highly recommend Lori to any bride and groom who want an absolutely perfectly gorgeous and delicious cake for their event. Thank you so much, Lori, for your professionalism, sense of humor, creativity, and talent. We are so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with you. - Thank you, Lori :-)

Note from the newlyweds:
Lori, The cake looked absolutely amazing, not to mention it was incredibly delicious! We got so many compliments on it. The polka-dots were adorable and matched our wedding theme perfectly! Thank you so much for everything, including recommending our awesome florist, reverend, and DJ. You all worked as an amazing team who made our wedding night truly magical. We can't thank you enough, and we hope to work with you in the future!
Love, Brianna and Dan

I named this cake "The Big Cheese". This reception really had a great theme going with the yellow and brown polka dots. From the table cards to the floral decorations. Jennifer from Belle of the Ball Floral Designs outdid herself once again.
