It’s the little things that will make your wedding perfect
August 28, 2017

The little details can really set the feel to your wedding. Two of my main parts of any wedding preparation that shows the true details on who you are as a couple are your wedding invitations and your wedding cake.


Meet Cold Spring Bakery:


Cold Spring Bakery provides a wide assortment of wedding cakes and wedding desserts with delivery available throughout Central Minnesota and the seven-county metro area.

We are finding that brides are choosing a variety of different types of desserts instead of the traditional wedding cake. Brides are doing dessert tables with mini desserts, donuts, pies, cheesecakes and cookies for their weddings. We still have a number of weddings choosing to do cake but they generally have a small tiered cake and then serve the guests cupcakes or sheet cake.

Naked cakes can be finished with fresh flowers or fresh fruit.


Wedding cakes themselves have changed so that we are doing more of the "naked" cakes with icing between the layers but no icing or a very thin layer on the outside. The other trend is for cakes that mix buttercream layers with fondant layers, often in a metallic gold or silver





Metallic layers complemented by buttercream rosettes





Mini desserts can include mini cupcakes, mini cheesecakes and other assorted mini desserts such as brownie bites, bar slices and cookies



Meet Rengel Printing:




A fun way to create a simple elegant but rustic feel to these weddinging invites with matching custom foiled dinner and beverage napkins





“We enjoyed creating this custom destination wedding invite.  The pocket on the back side was a great asset to hold all of the important wedding & travel details for their guests”






This custom invite was a beautiful way to create the look of a watercolor masterpiece. The main invite mounted to a back-to-back pocket on the curious metallic nude colored card stock.
