I did another wedding cake. Last June I did one and swore NEVER AGAIN. I promised my hubby I wouldn't do any more either but alas... the economy and friends have wore me down. I did the following cake for a co-worker who is getting married tomorrow. I am also doing two more weddings this spring. One is a cupcake wedding and the second is 9 different flavored cakes to go along with an ice cream sundae bar- I'm actually looking forward to them. I'll post another picture once I set up at the venue but for now here it is....
PS- Many thanks to JenM75 for allowing me to use her design and for her help. The Bride spent hours looking on this site and just had to have this cake- right down to the same topper. So thanks JenM75!!
The saying on the cake reads: "It's never too late to live happily ever after"
Beautiful! Do you use Picnik to edit your photos with?
Thanks- I use Microsoft PictureIt to edit my photos- never heard of Picnik. I'm trying to take bettter photos these days and the photo editing is a godsend. Thanks for looking and asking.
Ah...well Picnik is a free service, it can cost money for better features, but I love it! www.picnik.com
Plus, it links to Facebook, MySpace, Flickr, automatically if you want.
Thanks, I'll have to try it out. Just started on facebook last week and am using it to show some of my cakes so mught just come in handy. Thanks for the link.
WOW, this is beautiful and really romantic. You did an awesome job.
Your cake is beautiful and i am sure the bride loved it.
and thanks jamie for the link i will have to try it now.....
Thanks guys- the wedding isn't until tomorrow so I'll let you know how it is received. I plan to take a few more photos at the venue with the whole table set up- I have gold tulle and flowers for the table too but just wanted to share this one as it is now.
This is lovely!!!! The bride's lucky that you decided to do one more wedding cake.
It's beautiful. What did you use to get the gold coloring? If food coloring, what brand? Thanks!
You did a beautiful job with it!
Thanks, the color was actually Country Kitchen's ivory- I used a small amount for the base and tehn added more- a good bit- to the accent colors and it gave it the gold appearance-
I arrived at the venue to no table or space to set up the cake- the lighting was poor so I didn't get a good picture of the final set-up so I posted the picture above to my gallery. Haven't heard what the bride and groom thought of it. Only one little mishap when setting up---- I put my thumb into the back of the cake lifting up the board to place the tulle fabric -- thank goodness it was in the back and I had my supplies with me- I was able to fix it enough to cover it and then creatively bunched the fabric up in the back to finish correcting it.
This cake went so much easier than the first wedding cake that I swore would be the last- now I just have to convince the hubby that it would be okay to do them
Happy Easter all.
