Vendor Spotlight: Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe

Hey everybody!

Yes, yes... dessert is today! I bet you didn't know that I'm not much of a cake person. Or really, a sweets person. I'm a calorie counter and I carefully choose what I put into my stomach.

That is, unless it's from Shelby Lynn's. No, I'm serious! Jennifer (owner of Shelby Lynn's Cake Shoppe, and Food Network competition winner many times over) has my number when it comes to flavors of yummy cakes and confections. Not only that, but her creativity and designs blow my mind (I wrote about that when I discussed my wedding cake). So, it shouldn't surprise you that I was blown away when I showed up to Pratt Place for the styled shoot and I saw three cake masterpieces awaiting my camera. How does she do it?! And the cherry on top (yeah, terrible pun) is that she's as sweet as pie (there I go again).

Oh and a special little shoutout to Eventures Party Rentals for sending over plates, wine glasses, tables, chairs, and other lovely items!

And head to Jessica's Finishing Touch Event Design Blog for her take on the shoot!
