Special occasions require special cakes, and one of our favorite cake designers to work with is our friend Renata over at Lovely Cakes in Norwalk. We've had the pleasure of working with Lovely Cakes on a few projects this year, and so when the time came to order a very special, very personal cake, I knew Renata was the perfect woman for the job.
Quick background ... Greg (my better half) was nominated to be a company ambassador at the Col de Tourmalet, which is a cycling tour in the French Pyrenees that takes place this Saturday. Literally translated "Bad Trip", the Col de Tourmalet is a grueling ride that he has prepared for all year. This past weekend, forty of our closest friends and family came together to send him off with lots of love and well wishes ... and of course just a few sweets.
Everything you see on the cake was edible and delicious. Renata went above and beyond to ensure not a single detail was missed and the result was just spectacular (look at that bike!!!) The cake was a carrot cake with a cream cheese butter cream filling that was an absolute hit with Greg and our guests.
Thank you again Lovely Cakes!
