Bakery part of dream wedding


Kevin Williams of Burlington and Ana Maria Lizcano of North Branford are getting a cake from Durham’s own Kim’s Cottage Confections courtesy of the radio station 102.9 DRC-FM, which the happy couple both grew up listening to.

“Throughout our lives, Ana and I have continuously tuned into The Big D and have found comfort during our most difficult and happiest of times,” Williams said in a statement released by the radio station.

A video of the surprise engagement can be found on YouTube under the title “102.9 DRC-FM’s Big D Big Day Engagement!” Three years ago, Ana’s mother was diagnosed with leukemia and the family spent all their resources, including those set aside for Ana’s wedding, to get her the best care possible. In 2012, Ana’s mother lost her battle to cancer. On the day that Ana’s mother passed, Kevin told her, “I promise to take care of your daughter. I love her very much.” Kevin called that story into on 102.9 DRC-FM subsequently the station has helped the couple create their dream wedding.

Kim’s Cottage Confections owner Kim Terrill said she is excited to be creating the cake for the couple, but that she has yet to meet them. They will be coming to Kim’s Cottage Confections to start selecting a cake soon.

Kim’s Cottage Confections has been in business for 21 years, 11 of them in Durham after a move from Meriden. The bakery offers cookies, cupcakes, and handmade chocolates, and specializes in wedding and special occasion cakes.

Terril said that Durham has been a wonderful and welcoming community, and that she has enjoyed participating in the Durham Fair, the Taste of Durham, and other community events. Kim’s Cottage Confections participates in a scholarship program at the high school and sponsors a T-Ball team.

In addition to the cake, 102.9 DRC-FM is giving the couple a wedding and reception package valued at $29,000, including an engagement ring, reception, dance lessons, tuxedo rental, reception flowers, hair stylist, and makeup.
