Another FAB Wedding
I'm not sure if I've ever worked harder in my life than I did this weekend. I did this wedding cake, these cupcakes for the same wedding and the fly boat cake. I was up since 3 am and worked until about 7 pm straight through. It just about killed me off but was totally worth it because this cake turned out great! and the cupcakes were DARLING. Piping is not my strong suit so this was a challenge for me. And piping dark on light is really scary. You can't make very many mistakes without making a HUGE mess on your cake. It took SO MUCH food coloring to color the royal icing to make it this color that it will stain anything it touches so you can't wipe off too much without messing up your fondant underneath. You can't really tell in the photo but it has a gold pearl dust painted over the ivory. Anyway, it was tough but I'm really pleased with the way it turned out. Oh, and Thanks to Alix, Sydney, & Jill who rushed to my aid at the last minute when I didn't think I was going to get this cake done or delivered on time. You guys made it happen! Thanks!!!!
