This Summer has been full of weddings for me as well as our family. We had two back to back in July and they were both very beautiful.
My husbands niece was married on July 17th and she requested that I make her wedding cake and flowers for her. I wanted this to be so pretty for her so I set out weeks ahead designing her cake.
I have to admit that this is the biggest wedding cake I have ever made and was scared to death it was going to go all wrong. Nonetheless I put on my Cookie girl cape, rolled up my sleeves and licked my fingers through 30 pounds of cake frosting. It was so much fun and tasty too!
Each tier of the cake was a different flavor. I did a traditional wedding cake, a Hawaiian sunset with coconut and pineapple filling, and a Lemon cream cake with a lemon and strawberry filling.
Each moist and flavorful cake was such a big hit with the guests. My favorite has to be the traditional wedding cake. You just can't beat a classic.
The flowers were a mix of colorful blooms including pink and white roses. Yes they were absolutely fake but turned out to be very pretty. They complimented the fuchsia bridesmaid dresses perfectly.
All in all I was pleased with how things turned out and the Bride was so happy with it too. Especially the fact that the cake was black and white. She had wanted that so bad and I surprised her with it.
Her expression when she first saw the cake
is what made it for me.
