Lauren's Engagement Party

My beautiful niece Lauren is engaged to be married!!! 

Lauren is such a loving, caring, talented, giving, faithful and beautiful woman, I am so proud to call her "niece".  It seems like only yesterday she was little.

She's a Charleston cutie!

Now she's all grown up and she found her love and is ready to take a leap into married life. 
Jason is one LUCKY guy!  I have only met him once, but I can say his skill at finding a perfect woman is impeccable!

Here is the lovely couple at the party

The wedding is going to be on the other side of the country so I can't make the wedding cake.  :(  ...of course I jumped at the chance to make a special cake for her engagement party when she came home for the holidays.

The cake is a vanilla almond sour cream and a triple chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and raspberry fillings. 
Iced with buttercream embossed with a scroll pattern and adorned with pearl dusted gumpaste snowflakes.

Love you Lauren! 

Congratulations Lauren and Jason!


  1. The cake was PERFECT, Karen! I love you. I feel like it was yesterday that I was at YOUR wedding! :)

  2. I am loving that embossed pattern on the buttercream! Great job!!

    Just wondering what kind of icing you use on your cookies (I am completely amature!!) they look far better than any I have ever frosted! Thanks!
