Over the Memorial Day weekend, I had a large wedding cake to create and this time it was for a client who was someone I've known since my junior high days. I was excited to meet with her a few months ago and discuss the details of her wedding cake and to come up with a design.
One of the advantages of making wedding cakes and delivering them, is I get to see many wedding venues that I wouldn't normally visit or even know about. This was one of those venues. The wedding was held at the Mission Mill Museum in Salem, Oregon, which is a historic woolen mill and other buildings on a 5-acre site. The reception was held in the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill building on the third floor which was called the Spinning Room. I was relieved to find out that there was an elevator--whew!
