10th Annual Bridal Open House & Menu Tasting Vendor Spotlight: Deborah’s Specialty Cakes

25 Feb

Leading up to our 10th Annual Bridal Show & Tasting, we would like to shine a light on our wonderful vendors. Today we present a little of what Deborah’s Specialty Cakes has to offer. We hope you will plan to join us on March 2nd to see how 20+ vendors can make sure your wedding is the best day of your life!

“Deborah’s Specialty Cakes is excited to be part of the Foundry Park Inn’s Annual Bridal Open House again this year!

Deborah’s delights in making your cake unique and delicious. This isn’t just a job to me, it’s my creative outlet and something I love to do. I can’t think of a more wonderful thing than to be a part of people’s special moments, and being Italian means the best way to do that is with food, of course!! Each cake is the result of in-depth consultations with you. I like to get to know you, get to know your personality a little. Once I get a feel for what it is you are looking for I do a sketch and we use that as our working model.  The end result of this careful attention to detail is a centerpiece that harmonizes with your celebration and adds that extra special something. I can make a life-size guitar, complete with all the doo-dads. I have hand sculpted everything from an eight point buck to delicate, gumpaste magnolias. I’ve done Hobbit cakes and wedding cakes with zombies. After 25 years of making cakes there is not much I haven’t done and I am continually updating my skills.

A cake may be beautiful to look at but if it’s dry and tasteless the loveliness is soon forgotten. I make every single cake, from scratch, the day before your special event. Since all my cakes are by special order only I have no need to freeze cakes in order to meet an unexpected demand, and so my cakes are fresh, moist, and flavorful. I’ve developed a storehouse of recipes over the years that yield old-fashioned, truly yummy cakes, every time. The flavors, textures, and frosting combinations are endless. The thing I am most proud of is my authentic, Italian meringue icing. If icing has confectioner’s sugar in it then it is decidedly not an authentic buttercream icing. I am the only bakery in town that makes this wonderful icing. Not too sweet, not too heavy and full of real vanilla. It feels so luscious and delicious in your mouth, you’ll never want the other stuff again. Guaranteed!

Last but not least, I am very happy to offer Vegan, Non-Dairy, and Gluten Free cakes in addition to my regular flavors. I am fairly certain I can work around any food allergens or sensitivities you may have. I love to offer this to my clients because,no one should have to be without cake…..ever!!

I am giving away a door prize that every bride is eligible for, a gift certificate worth $50.00 towards your wedding cake for 125 people or more! Please come join us and have fun and eat cake!!

“Let me get the headaches! Let me solve any problems that pop up!

I do what is called ‘day of’ coordinating. However, I spend hours ahead of time – emails, phone calls, personal visits. Not only with you, but also with all your vendors.

My over 25 years as a caterer/manager made me very detail oriented and with weddings, there is no ‘small’ detail!

I keep my price very competitive because I really love what I do and get a lot of satisfaction from my always-thrilled brides, grooms, & their families (check out Happy People on my website).”

No matter when you book me, my services include:

* Going over all vendor contracts (making any suggestions for things I see might not be right) and suggesting 2 -3 vendors in each area if needed,

* Contacting vendors before the day and going over the details just to make sure we are on the same page about times, expectations, etc., Meeting with vendors as needed

* Tying together all the details for each vendor so they interact seamlessly and creating a personalized master detail & timeline sheet for you and all vendors, distributing those sheets BEFORE your wedding day,

*Calling those guests who don’t RSVP – if you supply me the phone numbers!

* Rehearsal, pre-ceremony, ceremony, reception & post reception coordination – I’m at the site when the first vendor arrives and I stay until it is over (10 – 12 hours) – assisting vendors as needed, insuring contractual items are met, and taking care of you!

*Extensive emergency kit travels with me!

* Coordinating all the timing and activity of the reception – being there to make sure the cake knife is at the cake for cake cutting, Bride & Dad are ready for their dance, caterer is providing per contract, music is playing as requested, etc.,

* Hand delivering your vendor checks day of as needed,

* Collecting all the personals items such as gifts, extra favors and programs, articles of changing clothes, and anything needing attention without family having to worry about it,

* Minimum of one (1) meeting now and one (1) closer to wedding with unlimited emails and phone calls – expect a lot of those! I will meet with vendors as needed.

I am whom you ask etiquette questions of, rely on to listen to you, and vent to when needed! If I don’t know the answer, I do the legwork to find the answer. It is the Bride and Groom’s wedding, not mine, so I’m very careful to learn their wishes and dreams and help make them come true. * Additional services available
