wedding cake tasting with l&m bakery, in delran, nj | August 3, 2023 by Meghan Deeley
Checking all the to-dos off our wedding list!
One thing that has remained our focus is working with small, local, family-run businesses for our wedding.
When it came time to select a baker we called Aunt Maureen, and she insisted on a cake tasting at L & M bakery in Delran, New Jersey.
My aunt Maureen owned a bakery with her late husband, Jim in Medford, NJ called Arasz's Taunton Pastries.
Their family's famous buttercream icing lives on at Cathy’s 14th Street bakery in OCNJ!
A bit more local to our venue, L+M Bakery has been around since 1964. The building was originally a Sunoco station built in 1928!
The bakery sent Ryan and I home with five flavors of cake, and three flavors of icing to try.
We skipped dinner that night, put on a fresh pot of coffee and our favorite Frank Sinatra vinyl.
I pulled out our 1970s "butterfly gold" Corelle saucer sets while Ryan cut everything in half. The flowers on the table were freshly cut from @erikasflowerbar in Atco, NJ.
We really loved the intimacy of having the tasting - just the two of us in our home.
We won’t spoil any surprises, but let’s just say - the cake at our wedding will not only look amazing - it will TASTE delicious too!
We have been one and done with so much of our wedding process and I continue to thank God for aligning the right people, places, and experiences for us.
Savoring every second of this season.
We are truly blessed.
