In our last blog post, we talked about creating edible figures to go on an out-of-state cake. It’s a way for us to still be involved in the birthday party since we can’t ship an entire birthday cake. Now we’ve got another solution!
Hold your party here! That’s what Gail did! They held a baby shower in Seminole, FL so they were able to pick up the cake on the way. Yay!
This wedding cake is from back in October…why haven’t I posted it before now? Your guess is as good as mine! But I think you’ll all really like it.
It was a seven tier wedding cake – all decorated with white and ivory fondant.
The cake topper was a dome of white and ivory gum paste flowers, and the top two tiers were decorated with fondant swags, lace, and quilting.
Then we had some ivory fondant stripes, more lace, more quilting, and a lot of fondant pleats around the base!
While I was in the middle of setting up the cake, the bridesmaids announced that Caroline was dying to see her cake! So, I moved all my stuff aside and…here comes the bride!
I think she liked it.
And I think she was even more excited to cut into it!
After tasting the cake, Caroline gave the camera a thumbs-up…yummy! But, wait a minute, Rob has icing on his finger…and a rather sinister look on his face. Don’t do it, Rob! Do NOT rub that icing on Caroline’s gorgeous nose!
*Thank you to Dana Goodson Photography for providing such amazing photos of the cake and cake cutting! See more of her shots of the wedding here.
I didn’t decorate these cakes, I had to share them with you. Both cakes were iced with white or ivory buttercream and decorated with the quilting effect.
But what really makes these cakes stand out are the decorative brooches. They were purchased by the brides at Steinmart for about $12 a piece. They add such a nice touch of glamor and glitz to what could have been a very plain cake. Don’t you just love them?
