andrea used some farmer's market apple butter between the layers & topped it off with a light dusting of powdered sugar. 
you can't forget about the cake bunting ~ andrea used fabric remnants, string and two bamboo skewers. 


  1. YUMMY this looks so delicious! xoxo

  2. Ooh, thank you for sharing this! I love the look of this cake!

  3. Ack! Love the cake even MORE, now! Soooo perfect.

  4. When I was thinking of what I wanted to bake for this session, I thought I'd keep the flavors light & casual... the apple butter was perfect for the filling. {And you can eat it warm or serve it cold/refrigerated}!

  5. You already know I am obsessed with cake bunting- this one is so pretty, it might be my favorite ever!

  6. OH my GOODNESS. YUM! What a great cake for Fall! you better believe I will be making this soon!

  8. Oh my - I didn't think that the shoot from yesterday could get any better...but then this - WOW!! You ROCK Chris - this is just fabulous...and I am so going to try! Thanks.


  9. Oh wow, that whole shoot is SO lovely but that cake definitely takes the cake :) Love the bunting and it looks so yummmmy.

  10. Horray for the recipe! This looked so divine in the photos-hope it turns out beautifully for me, too!

  11. I love apple butter, and I love cake. Score!
