The 2018 Wedding Issue is here!
Be sure to kick off your wedding planning by attending the Bridal Extravaganza on September 16, 2018 at the Waxahachie Civic Center. Did you see the cake on the cover? It was designed by Angel Schiffer of Bittersweet Bakery in Waxahachie and was photographed in the Crape Myrtle room at the Waxahachie Civic Center by Sierra Summer Photography.
“One of my favorite selling points for the Waxahachie Civic Center is the fact that we can be so versatile. We can open our ballroom up and have one huge expo or divide it and have six smaller events, the options are really endless! This not only allows us to be accommodating to different size events but also those clients who have different size budgets. Our staff will work with you to create a custom- tailored event that will exceed your expectations!
Whether your needs are as simple as a great and convenient location for company training and seminars, or as lavish and detailed as wedding ceremony/receptions, proms, and galas, we know you and your guests will enjoy our professional and beautiful setting.”
– April Ortiz, Director of the Waxahachie Civic Center
The ECLM team worked with Angel Schiffer of Bittersweet Bakery in Waxahachie to identify some new wedding cake trends to inspire our brides. Frist, we went for color with the deep sea blue. Second, Schiffer added texture with fresh fruits like blackberries, pomegranate seeds and figs and then fresh orchids.
You & Your Baker
Schiffer recommends that you start working with your baker a year before your wedding. After choosing your baker, sign that contract! Schiffer recommends that you let your baker know about the other food being served, the number of guests you actually expect to attend (be realistic!) so they can help you create a cake that fits with your needs and your budget. Lastly, make sure you have the ability to make changes to your cake in the contract! Give yourself permission to change your mind and build a strong relationship with your baker.
