hometown highlight: sugar bakeshop

delicious! i happened upon sugar bakeshop by accident. i already had my cake and baker picked out for my wedding and last minute that just didn't work out. so i was driving down cannon street and saw this charming bakery and decided to give it a whirl. i went in and just ordered a lemon (my fave) cupcake. to-die-for. i was blown away! i quickly made contact with the owner...whom happens to live right next door in a lovely old charleston house.... and this is what i ended up with


we chose to do 3 cakes with as many flavors as we could choose! the cakes all have butter cream frosting and white chocolate shavings on them. i wanted to go with a very soft and enchanting feeling so we chose all white. they peaked the icing instead of smoothing it making all the texture stand out. it was everything i ever dreamed of.
the cake topper was on the cake of my nana and pop, unfortunately my nana is no longer with us and i was so honored to be able to have pieces of her with me on my special day :)
love you nana

  1. The cakes were declicious. I loved that you used your grandparents cake topper. That made it so special. I also want to add that you used some of my Aunt Jane's antique cake plates. You and Stewart cut the cake with the cake knife that his father and I used at our wedding. It was also used by Stewart's sister Amelia. The cake knife rest was his grandmothers. I love that you combined old sentimental things.
