28 Days of Adding Happiness – The Best of Cakes and Cupcakes

Pretty Cakes from Dippidee bakery in Lehi UtahPlanning our wedding from the other side of the world was nearly the most stressful thing I’ve ever done. Two months before the big day, I arrived back in the US and literally started running around like a crazy woman trying to make the last minute arrangements, checking up on vendors, Letterpressing 125 wedding invitation suites (3 color, 6 pieces each) by hand, and designing and creating 8 million different decorations, paper goods, favors, and other items for our special day. It’s no wonder that it did not occur to me until 2 weeks before the big day that we had nothing planned for dessert! Oh my!

We were that crazy couple that showed up at a bakery two weeks before our wedding day and asked to try one of their cupcakes. Once we realized that they were the most incredible cupcakes either of us had ever tasted, we decided that without a doubt, this was the place that absolutely must bake our wedding cake. Luckily for us, the little shop and the amazing owner was more than happy to bake up tons of beautiful desserts for our special day despite the complete lack of notice. We ordered up just about everything they offered too. We had cupcakes, and cheesecakes, cake pops and brownies, cannolis and lemon bars, and of course, a two tier wedding cake! They did an amazing job!

Ever since the day we just happened to stop in to that little bakery, the Mr and I have been in love. Whenever we have a special occasion worth celebrating, we just have to stop in a grab up a cupcake. The Mr has also been known to stop in there on his own to surprise me when he feels I’ve done something worthy of a celebration such as my first etsy sale or the launch of my new website. It’s become a pretty special little place to us.

On our wedding day, we ran into a small little issue with our wedding venue completely disregarding the entire request to save all of our left-over desserts and especially the top tier of our wedding cake. Once we realized all of this, I wanted to cry. Not only did we not have yummy desserts to serve to our guests the next day at our farewell brunch, but we also couldn’t uphold the tradition of cutting into the top of our wedding cake on our first anniversary. That day, however, my hero of a husband made me a promise that no matter what, every year on our anniversary, we would get a Dippidee cake to celebrate! I’m pretty certain that if for no other reason than that, my husband is definitely a keeper!

Without fail, today we hopped in the car and took a little ride over to our favorite little bakery, Dippidee. We picked out a small vanilla cake (which in true Dippidee fashion was filled and topped with frosting) and a little cupcake for good measure. Tomorrow is our one year Anniversary and you better believe that we will be cutting our little cake, and celebrating a whole year of crazy, wild, awesome marriage!
