Last weekend I did a tasting with a real cute couple. The bride was looking for 150 cupcakes. She explained that her mother always wanted to make her wedding cake and her mom would be making the cutting cake.
Smart lady, MOB!
A year ago, I attempted to make my son's wedding cake. I live in NC and the wedding was in Ohio. I found a home baker to make the cake itself for me. The morning of the wedding I stood in the reception hall waiting for the AC to be fixed. It was almost 100 degrees outside. By the time I finished making the 3 tier for 150 people, I had very little time left to get myself ready for my son's wedding.
At the time, I had thought, good cake, or good hair. It was a life time dream to make a wedding cake for my son's wedding. I chose to have good cake. When I look back on the wedding photos, I have this stupid (real) grin on my face but my hair looks awful.
I wish I would have thought of something like the MOB thought of above. A small cutting cake would have been perfect. It can be set up like the photo below:
That's really cute. I was lucky and was still able to get back on time to get my hair done...which is good, cause I REALLY suck at doing my own hair.
