McCormick Home Ranch!

McCormick Home Ranch is one of those wonderful historic homes from the Ranching Days in Camarillo, California. Built in 1918, surrounded by farmlands and not to far from the Pacific Ocean, it is a beautiful site for a country wedding.

I love designing cakes that allow me to be creative, but keeping the design simple and elegant.

Note from the bride:
Lori, my cake was everything and more than what I expected!!! You outdid your self. It was almost to pretty to eat!! And all my guests loved every layer. Ron and I are excited for our 1 year to come around to eat that banana, cuz I didn't get to have any, other than what was smashed in my face!
Can't wait to work with you again for birthday cakes, baby showers, and all that fun stuff that comes after the wedding.

This fondant covered cake was marbleized using a sponge painting technique and then the stenciling was applied.

Fresh flowers were added in violet shades along with matching edible butterflies.

The sugar topper was made to match the monogram on their wedding invitations.
Edible butterflies enhanced the design to add a whimsical look to the cake. The design fit perfectly with the surrounding area of McCormick Ranch House.

Jennifer from Belle of the Ball designs created these centerpieces, so pretty!
Each place setting was set with a jar of handmade strawberry jam, yum!

This birdcage hung from a tree for guests to insert any envelopes for the bride and groom.

McCormick Ranch House has been owned by the McCormick family since 1918.
Congratulations to the happy couple,
Tiana & Ron
