The Abbey

Venues

Regular readers of this blog (which I believe there is only one — me) know that I plan to occasionally discuss different venues in San Diego as we deliver to them.  This post is about The Abbey located on 5th Avenue in Banker’s Hill one block away from Balboa Park.  The Abbey is actually operated by Hornblower Cruises.  The Abbey / Hornblower sell wedding packages that include a wedding cake.  Twiggs is one of the vendor options for supplying the wedding cake, so we deliver to The Abbey quite often. 

The building started life in 1910 as the Park Place Methodist Episopal Church.  It’s a gorgeous space built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style and is now on the National Historic Registry.  It long ago ceased being a church, but still very much has that feel inside.  A gold-leafed Gariel blowing his horn tops the building and beautiful stained glass windows adorn the inside.  It can accommodate up to 300 guests and is a perfect venue if you want everything in one place — ceremony and reception.  It’s a little dark inside, but for evening weddings it’s perfect.  You also have the building to yourself, so you’re not competing with other weddings in adjoining banquet rooms like many hotels.  Hornblower also has a great reputation for great food, so lots of foodies book this place.

Meanwhile, of course I have to plug Twiggs as well.  Deana and Luke got married at The Abbey this past Saturday.  The design they chose was one we’ve done several times now.  Fresh calla lillies wrap around a single pedastal that supports the top tier.  A ribbon is wrapped around the base of each tier and fondant balls rolled in Super Pearl Lustre Dust surround the base of each tier.  The first time I did this cake, I spent about an hour and a half trying to figure out how to attach the stems to the pedastal without destroying the flower.  Now I’ve got it down.  This one took me about 5 minutes.  So here’s the picture;  it’s a simple, but beautiful cake.
