The wedding cake I just delivered yesterday caused me nothing but trouble when I tried to frost it. I used sugarshacks buttercream recipe and for some reason it had tons of air in it. I did something wrong. I worked and worked to get it smooth. I was so tempted to scrape everything off and start all over, I was so upset. I was thinking why do I do cakes, its too stressful. I started the decorations and low and behold, most of the imperfections went away. I think the eye goes to the decorations and your not looking at a blank canvas, where everything shows. In the end I was happy with the cake, I never thought it would turn out, ready to quit, now I can't wait for the next one. If you want to peek its the grapes and ivy cake in my photos, it was inspired by buddy's cake from cake boss. thanks
Just looked at your cake, and it looks great.
Since you said you had imperfections, of course thats where my eye went first. Yes, as a fellow "caker" I see them. However, as the recipient of the cake...I bet they never noticed.
Its a beautiful cake, and its easy to see how much painstaking work went into the decorations.
Very well done
Your right they never noticed, I sure did, I was stressing so hard on this one. It was for a big wedding, all my friends and family were there, wanted it to look perfect. I had such trouble with the buttercream, still in search of the perfect one, but everyone liked it, and like I said, with all of the decorations, people didn't notice. I would absolutely hate to do a cake that is all white buttercream, minimal, couldn't do it.
