Interview: Columbus Bride Magazine

Columbus Ohio Wedding Planners from Bliss Wedding & Event Design

Our very own Tracie Zody and Marie Gilman were interviewed in the latest issue of Columbus Bride magazine.  Their topic – “25 Reason’s To Let The Pros Plan Your Wedding”.  This is always a favorite topic for us around the studio, so needless to say, there was no shortage of ideas to share!

One of our favorite reasons we advocate for our clients is the amount of time they save by having us on board as their planner.  With busy lives and hectic work schedules, researching your wedding vendors can be a full time job!

Save time. Zody says she attends a constant stream of networking events where she mingles with bakers, florists and caterers in venues all across town. The bridal couple simply doesn’t have time to replicate that level of experience.

Wedding Skills Workshop: Cake Rescue


Who doesn’t love cake? For lots of people, it is one of the best parts of the wedding! The baker worked a long time to get the icing smooth and perfect so why is there suddenly is a thumbprint in the icing? Or what if a ring bearer decides to take a little taste before the bride and groom cut it? Or if your hand or sleeve brushes the icing while adding flowers?

Fixing a cake can be a tricky operation but there are things you can do to make quick fixes in the event of an emergency. Amanda from Bakery Gingham will be teaching us all about the finer points of cake and cake repair.

Some of the topics we will be covering include:
*the correct way to cut a wedding cake
*how to pipe icing to fix a thumbprint or sleeve brush
*the difference between and limitations of buttercream and fondant
*how to stablize a leaning or falling cake

Bring your questions and wear something you don’t mind possibly getting icing on – this is a workshop not a lecture and we promise there will be buttercream involved! Everything you need to practice with, a mini emergency kit loaded with cake emergency related essentials sized perfectly for your pocket or bag plus a yummy treat are included in the admission.

Join us on July 15 at 7:00 pm at Bakery Gingham for the Cake Rescue Workshop.

Admission is $25 per person and pre-registration is required as spots are limited.
