Print Friendly

Guests enjoy an evening of wedding cake and Champagne at 20nine.

A perfect San Antonio evening, with a gentle breeze, was made even more memorable Tuesday when six of the city’s best bakers gathered at 20nine in the Quarry, 255 E. Basse Road, for a charity event.

Red velvet wedding cupcakes from Kate’s Frosting.

In the spotlight was the winning combination of wedding cake in a number of flavors and sweet Champagnes, sparkling and bright but with enough sugar to go with the cake.
