Encountered some troubles along the way,
don’t think I’ll be making a wedding cake again any time soon,
but in the end, it turned out just like I wanted it to.
A rustically elegant cake…
…for an elegantly rustic couple.
Five two-layer square tiers: 6”, 8”, 10”, 10”, 12”, two yellow cakes, three chocolate (Devil’s Food, to be exact). All were covered with high-humidity buttercream frosting, then piped with green buttercream. Flowers and leaves made of gumpaste, painted with green petal dust in certain spots, then outlined with chocolate buttercream.
My brother, Al, and his buddies made the cake base and pillar section, using plans I gave them. Well, sort of using plans I gave them, but that’s a whole other story that includes drilling a cake… By the way, Al also made the trellis and sign shown in the ceremony photos above. Cool, huh? He’s a neat guy. And Mary’s a neat gal.
Congratulations, Mary and Al.
May your life together be as sweet
as all the frosting I slathered on your cake!
