Some of you have been asking me to post the cake I made for my brother's wedding. I'm a little reluctant because I didn't get the greatest picture (one that doesn't accentuate the flaws), but this is me being vulnerable and less of a perfectionist. I'm trying:)
As you can see, this isn't a typical 3-tired wedding cake. My brother had a small wedding (about 10 of us) at the courthouse and we had a celebration after with cake and champagne. My mom asked me to make a cake for the occasion, so I decided to make a simple white cake with red fondant roses.
This is a marble cake with buttercream icing. The diamonds are made with a diamond impression mat and I placed an edible pearl at each intersection.
The fondant roses take a little time. A few days before I made the cake, I started constructing them while watching TV and Youtube beauty videos. Each rose took about 10 minutes, but it's kindof fun making them:) They have to dry overnight and become very hard and brittle. Traveling 3.5 hours with a cake in the back was a little scary. I think I need a sign that says "Cake on Board" rather than "Baby on Board" so people know why I am driving like I'm 90 years old. I also sprinkled some edible glitter on top of the cake for a fun effect. I love adding that final touch.
If you are new and haven't seen the rest of my cakes, feel free to click the "cake" label at the top right of my page or under the "brands" title.
and I want to leave you with a funny little cartoon I saw that kindof hits home...LOL
