NYC Checkered Cab Wedding Cake

A while we back we received an email from a lovely bride who currently lives in Dublin. She was having a Manhattan destination wedding and wanted a “very New York” wedding cake.

She fell in love with our NYC checkered cab cake on our site and wanted a version with a NYC skyline.


This cake is truly New York.

Even though they stopped making those cool checkered cabs years ago, they still remind everyone of NYC.

We added a whimsical take on the Chrysler building and the Empire State Building around the sides of the cake. The apple represents the Big Apple!

In the back of the cake, we added a small shamrock by the couple’s wedding date to remind them of their hometown.

The checkered taxi is made from fondant and will be kept as a momento from their special day.

We also created monogrammed cupcakes with the initials of the couple on top. They were given out as favors at the end of the night.

Our sweet Irish Bride had this to say:

“I have to give you a big high five for your AMAZING cake and cupcakes… Everyone was raving about them. Thank you so much for everything – it was great to deal with you, as you are such a professional and such a talented baker! Even the hotel staff wanted your details :-)”

AW, thanks Tara, congrats on your nuptials!
