Something Spooky

White Lady
Retold by S. E. Schlosser
In the early 1800s, the White Lady and her daughter were supposed to have lived on the land where the Durand Eastman Park -- part of Irondequoit and Rochester -- now stands. One day, the daughter disappeared. Convinced that the girl had been raped and murdered by a local farmer, the mother searched the marshy lands day after day, trying to discover where her child's body was buried. She took with her two German shepherd dogs to aid in her search, but she never found a trace of her daughter. Finally, in her grief, the mother threw herself off a cliff into lake Ontario and died. Her dogs pined for their mistress and shortly joined her in the grave.

After death, the mother's spirit returned to continue the search for her child. People say that on foggy nights, the White Lady rises from the small Durand Lake which faces Lake Ontario. She is accompanied by her dogs and together they roam through the Durand Eastman park, still searching for her missing daughter.

The White Lady is not a friendly spirit. She dislikes men and often seeks vengeance against the males visiting the park on her daughter's behalf . There have been reports of the White Lady chasing men into the lake, shaking their cars, and making their lives miserable until they leave the park. She has never touched any females accompanying these unfortunate fellows.

Real Weddings: Fabio & Sandra

A couple months ago we celebrated the wedding of my cousin Fabio and his beautiful bride, Sandra.
They began their journey as high school sweethearts and tied the knot ten years later.

For the wedding cake, the couple wanted something romantic. Together, we came up with this 5-tier design topped with dozens of handmade sugar flowers that was inspired by the brides bouquet. 

See below for a few pictures of mia famiglia.

Real Weddings: Sherry & James

I was thrilled when I received a call from Sherry. Although we haven’t spoken in a decade, our relationship dates all the way back to elementary school.

It’s exciting that I had the opportunity to contribute to this moment of my girlfriends life as she celebrates her love with the man of her dreams.

Each tier of this elegant wedding cake is wrapped with links that represent unity - the perfect representation for Sherry and James. The links were hand-painted with 24 carat edible gold and topped with a romantic bouquet of ivory handmade sugar roses.

Congratulations to our beautiful couple.

Real Weddings: Alya & Farhan

Something Green

When I think of the colour green, a few key words seem to pop into my head at the same time. Words like fresh, clean, alive, natural beauty.
Words couldn't express Leith any differently. She was the client behind this sweet arrangement.

What I fall in love with each time I design a sweet table, is the natural beauty that tends to grow with the theme. We're no longer thinking, how can we make donuts green to colour match, but instead, keeping things natural and incorporating accents that make a statement.

Green doesn't seem to be a popular colour in wedding themes,  but when it is used correctly, nothing seems better.
