We’ve got some seriously delicious eye candy from our Oh So Sweet photo shoot shot by Ty Pentecost Photography on location at Sheldon Inn in Elk Grove. We asked Batter Up Cakery to bake us something sweet and give some advice. Scroll to read what Jolene Pettersen had to say.
“I generally use the rule of one slice per person,” says Jolene Pettersen of Batter Up Cakery. “If a couple is doing cupcakes, I would suggest one cupcake per person.” For mini cupcakes, she suggests the rule of one-and-a-half per person.
Instead of having one large cake, many couples are choosing to have multiple, smaller ones. Pettersen loves this idea, explaining, “I think a variety of smaller cakes on cake stands helps fill up a table, adds interest and acts as a decor element to the wedding.”
“By going with one person it guarantees that all the desserts will match in color and design,” says Pettersen, noting that it also cuts down delivery fees. “Since you’ll be paying the delivery fee for the cake anyway, it’s worth the peace of mind to go with one baker.”
