What a BEAUTIFUL Day for a Wedding!

The Inn at Harvest Farms Lake is without a doubt one of my favorite places to be. Today, which was a BEAUTIFUL, bright blue, breezy day, just perfect for a wedding by the lake, I had the pleasure of delivering a cake to the Inn....well, a few cakes.
The wedding cake was a 4 tiered white cake w/buttercream frosting, wrapped in a layer of handpainted fondant. The grooms cake is the Neyland Stadium field, home of the University of Tennessee Vols. It was a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream fillng, buttercream frosting, and decorated with candy clay.

Nashville Flood Relief Drive: HUGE SUCCESS!

Thank you to everyone who came out to ET Cetera yesterday and donated to the Flood Relief effort. I am proud to announce 200+ cases of water made it's way to the victims of last weeks flood in Nashville. Also, we gathered numerous baby care items and baby food, which will be sent to "Babes for Babies" a flood relief effort started by my friend Krysta Swann Sherrill.

Planning is already in the works for another relief drive and will be announced no later than the first of the week. The focus will be on Hickman County, an area of Middle Tennessee, that sustained a multitude of damage. A girl I went to school with lives there and will make sure the money goes to needy families in that rural area.

Winners of the Relief Drive Giveaway are: April Roberts, Pandora Starter Bracelet; and Melissa Dorrell, Sterling Silver 3 strand w/beads necklace.

Thank you all so much for making this last minute drive a HUGE success!!!!!!!
