Happy wedding day, @juliejvee! You are an absolute dream and I loved being a part of your day! So many of my favorite vendor pals pulled together this gorgeous day and I'll be able to sleep easy knowing that @mustardseedphotography is going to capture it all perfectly! And thank you for the blooms @maxitflowerdesign, I had so much fun adding them!

A beautiful floral arrangement by @fdellitdesigns to add height, a kraft runner with perfect calligraphy by @afineflourish and a variety of rustic desserts really highlight this cake with just the right amount of understated elegance. I always tell couples to consider their cake table when planning their day because a little bit of extra thought really goes a long way. And if you can, always have a giant chandelier twinkling overhead. ✨ Planning: @leanonme_events Cake: @buttercuphouston Venue: @beckendorfffarms Photography: @cottonweddings Linens: @houseofhough Glassware: @revisionistevents Calligraphy: @afineflourish Flowers: @fdellitdesigns

So excited that I can finally share this cake from a dream shoot with @leanonme_events at @beckendorfffarms! @cottonweddings were the genius behind the lens and I absolutely adore every detail! Just wait until my next post with the shot of the full table - it's so, so good and full of ways to dress up your dessert table. Head over to the Glamour and Grace blog for more images from this gorgeous shoot!

Tasting boxes heading out! They were such a success, I can hardly even believe it. If you missed out, not to worry! I'm already brainstorming for May's box and I'm leaning heavily towards southern classics like German chocolate, red velvet, carrot and apple spice for all you fall and winter couples! Thanks again for all the support! πŸ€—

I must have pinched myself the whole way home after leaving this shoot with @maxitflowerdesign and @spellevents at @tinyboxwoods. @pppaaaiiiigggeee is so amazing behind the lens and every single detail is just perfect. Thanks for including me, ladies! πŸ’—

Today was a reaaaaally good mail day. I'm all set for the tasting boxes and can't wait to fill them with all those yummy slices! Last day to order is Friday! (Link in profile)

Just another reminder to snatch up this month's tasting box! See link in profile to send in a request! Flavors: 1.

Fresh peach and maple cake with brown sugar blueberry jam, praline and whiskey Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 4. Earl grey cake with fresh strawberry preserve and lavender strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream fillings (Photo by @bricostello)

Ever wonder what those macaron 2-packs look like? Well, thanks to @bricostello I now have the most gorgeous picture ever to show them off. Tied up with silk ribbon and piled high on a platter, I can't imagine a more perfect favor to gift your guests.

Yesterday was a full day, for sure, but before I went to bed (passed out) a former bride sent over some pics from her daughter's first birthday party. Thank you so much @georgiadmorgan for letting me be a part of this special day for your cutie pie! I loved making these cakes and you did such a great job with those adorable toppers! They're just the sweetest! (Pictured are a champagne raspberry cake and egg-free vanilla raspberry smash cake)

It was all sunshine and water slides for Kick's fourth birthday yesterday! Loved making this cake and the mountain of cupcakes topped with @shipleydonuts donut holes for the celebration! While I was adding the donuts it very quickly turned into a, "one for you, one for me," situation and I was totally OK with it. πŸ©πŸ„πŸŒŠ

Loved dressing up this pretty cake with blooms from @brambleandbee. I'm also convinced that today had to have been the most beautiful day to get married ever. πŸ’—

Tasting boxes now available! Through the link in my profile you can order a tasting box available for pickup on April 19th or 20th. I'm going to be really flexible with pickup times to accommodate as many people as I can. I've spent much of the last week editing these flavors and think that not only are they beautifully composed, but they will translate well to even the largest of crowds. FLAVORS: $30 / box 1. Dark chocolate cake with espresso mousse and milk chocolate chip Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 2. Meyer lemon and brown butter glazed olive oil cake with lemon curd, fresh blueberry and vanilla bean buttercream fillings 3. Fresh peach and maple cake with brown sugar blueberry jam, praline and whiskey Swiss meringue buttercream fillings 4. Earl grey cake with fresh strawberry preserve and lavender strawberry Swiss meringue buttercream fillings My guess is that they will get scooped up pretty fast and if everything goes well I might be moving in this direction for all future tastings! Cake boxes every month sound pretty good to me! Happy tasting! πŸ“· by @danafernandezphoto

Quick question... Would you be interested in an open tasting not exclusively limited to weddings? Here me out... Every time I post a tasting I get lots of requests to come over and try some cake. While I would LOVE to do this (seriously, how fun!) it just doesn't make much sense from a business point of view. With that said, would you be interested in stopping by for four or five pieces of some my favorite and most requested flavors? Cake pieces would be packaged for pickup and perfect for gifting, too! Think bridesmaids, groomsmen, teachers, clients, bffs and even your boyfriend who maybe needs a not-so-subtle nudge πŸ˜‰. If you are a couple interested in using me for your wedding this would be a more affordable option to get a sense of the quality of my work and at a later date we could talk details. Win-win for everyone, right? I'm still working out the logistics, because right now it's really just an idea swirling in my head, but I'd love to hear your thoughts! Tag your friends, comment with flavor requests and let's get to planning! Oh, and sorry about the novel πŸ™ˆ

While I was delivering Saturday's wedding my husband and his parents took the kids to Brenham to see the bluebonnets and stumbled upon this giant field of buttercups. I'm not sure if they are actually buttercups, but I couldn't be happier that they pulled over to snap this picture for me. I'm going to treasure it forever πŸ’—

Rainbow carrots about to get prepped for my rainbow carrot cake studded with pecans and golden raisins then soaked in a sweet buttermilk glaze. And then cream cheese frosting πŸ€—. Couldn't be more excited for a tasting today with @revisionistevents! Better bring your sweet tooth, fellas!

This week I met with an accountant for the first time and it was eye-opening, to say the least. After I crawled out from under a crushing rock embarrassment we got to work on making all our dreams come true. First step, this new gal! (Actually, adding a third refrigerator was more like the 1,000,000th step because this week was INTENSE) I can't wait to fill her to the brim with all sorts of yummy cakes!

There is no better feeling than seeing families gathered together around one of my cakes to celebrate the ones they love. Thank you so much @kellikickerillo for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful mother's birthday! For me, this picture is really what it's all about. πŸ’— Photography by @catchlightgroup

Happy Sunday, folks! Just dropped off a stunner of a cake (with no pictures to show for it because I flew out the door like a crazy person πŸ™„) and now it's time for some spring cleaning. Hope you enjoy this last day of spring break! @danafernandezphoto @chandeliergrove @twobewed @ashjoseph @heylovelymakeup

The most beautiful wedding day at @chandeliergrove with so many of my favorites. I've been waiting for this wedding for so long and it turned out even better than I could have imagined. Congratulations Deborah and Elton! πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— @danafernandezphoto @flowervibestx @twobewed @heylovelymakeup

As usual, I'm a day late and a dollar short. We made this chicken pot pie today (the day after pi day) and it was...amazeballs. Sorry, there's no other word for it. You can check out a little more of how it came to be in my story!

This weekend was so full and I couldn't be happier that I got to make the world just a little bit sweeter. One of the couples I met with yesterday (who is planning one AMAZING dessert bar) wanted to have some fun with flavors and we had the best time brainstorming some really yummy options. I drew inspiration from this slice of cake from @tuliebakery that completely knocked my socks off. After throwing out some ideas one of the items we settled on was an olive oil shortbread cookie with brown butter buttercream topped with a bourbon maple glazed sage leaf. A total dream, I tell ya! I might be completely swamped with proposals right now but I'm feeling really fortunate. It's not lost on me that people come to my little home in Spring to pick up or plan for their special occasions. Thanks for allowing me to do what I love. You guys are the best. πŸ’–

My split second of fame on #WoodWork on @diynetwork! We FaceTimed my parents during the show and all got a kick out of it. 😊 And yes, @thefarmhouseevents really is that beautiful and the tables by @harpdesignco really are that spectacular. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this fun shoot @lovebirdsvintage!

Super excited for @clintharpofficial and @kellygharp to finally star in their new pilot Wood Work on March 8th! I *think* that if you look close enough you might even get to see some of my work on this episode! It depends on how big of a sweet tooth the producers have πŸ˜‰. So, so excited and could not be happier for the entire @harpdesignco team. They were a total dream to work with and I'm sending a giant hug and kiss to @lovebirdsvintage for bringing me on board! Make sure you tune in!

Now THAT is how you style your cake table! Love me a good boxwood wall 😍 Styling and rentals @lovebirdsvintage | Photography @katihewittphoto | Venue @thefarmhouseevents | Florals @collegeparkflowerstx

Big day! It's my sister's birthday so naturally I'm scrambling to make her a last minute cake πŸ™ˆ, my boy's first baseball game of the season (so excited!), and shoot day with @leanonme_events and @kate_elizabeth_photography. Sending off this beauty and can't wait to see how it all comes together. Make sure to check out my stories today for behind the scenes pics! (Proud baseball mom moments included ⚾️)

Just a reminder to sign up for my last tasting day of the Spring! Mark your calendars for March 12th and shoot me an email at info@buttercuphouston.com for all the details!

What a dream this trip was! Thank you so much @studiomcgee @syd_mcgee @amille23 @sweetpeachkids and especially @petalandtwigdesign for rolling out the red carpet for me. I truly felt so special this week and I can't tell you how much it meant to me. I can't wait to come back with my crew very soon!

So happy I could join your birthday celebration @sweetpeachkids! One of the highlights of my trip so far was hearing how special you are to so many people. Thank you for taking such good care of my Utah pals! P.S. Now I know why @brenda_coleman STILL talks about how sweet you are all the time πŸ’—.
