It’s been quite a whirlwind few days here at Sweet Element! This morning, we were fortunate enough to have one of our cakes featured in a segment that The Knot had on The Early Show on CBS that was showcasing how people on non-presidential budget could afford a beautiful and similarly styled wedding to Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this past weekend. Since I’m currently working on about four hours of sleep, I figured I would just let pictures tell most of the story of how the past 24 hours have been.
Here’s the base wedding cake at the studio before we packed it up at 4 AM (no that is NOT a typo), to take it into Manhattan to The Early Show. Since the segment was about keeping prices low, The Knot picked a small, simple three tier cake with fondant pearls. Ideally, the cake would have been frosted in buttercream, but since the segment was shot outside in NYC, we opted for a fondant exterior that was dusted with super pearl dust.
8:00 AM : A lovely shot of the bridal gown model with our cake & floral arrangements behind.
8:35 AM: Carley Roney, editor in chief of TheKnot.com & Erica Hill of The Early Show discussing weddings on a budget.
A little after 9 AM : A very tired me & Carley with the cake right before they broke down the set.
