When thinking of weddings cakes, things come to mind like white, frosting and miniature bride and groom figures – but wedding cakes can be so much more than that. Icing Dreams Specialty Cakes, located in Waite Park, is here to help engaged couples design the perfect cake reflecting personality and style.
Icing Dreams specialize in unique wedding cakes, 3-D cakes, cookies and cheesecakes. With more than 20 flavors including Key Lime, Bailey’s Irish Cream and Mocha, there is a flavor to satisfy all taste buds. Not only are Icing Dream’s cakes delicious, they are very unique.
Owners Dana Thomsen and Karen Kuhn know the baking industry, and with 28 years combined experience, they have big dreams for cake making. “We wanted something more elaborate then plain sheet cakes. We wanted to use our creativity to offer something different than chocolate and marble,” said Karen.
And since July 2006, that is exactly what they’ve been doing. From extravagant wedding cakes to specialty cakes shaped as Nintendo Wii consoles and potato salad, no request is too big or small.
New features for Icing Dreams include Cake Shooters, miniature cakes served “shot style” inspired by favorite bar shots like grasshoppers and lemon drops – good for showers and parties. Candy tables, a popular trend for weddings, is another new feature available.
Karen and Dana have big plans for 2009. “We are booking tons of weddings,” said Dana. The duo plans on doubling their weddings from 2008 and are doing a lot of different cakes.
Their advice for brides – book early because popular dates fill up fast. They also advise brides to do their research and to take advantage of taste tests and consultations. Doing this ensures you get the cake you’ve been dreaming of.
