Another day, need more advice! Wedding cake batter mess. - Page 4

Part of the little dark things are the body of little butterflies I think.  You can see one on the close up pic.  There are more, a couple on the bottom tier.  Yes, I spent too much time looking closely at it also.

yes little butterflies

 

i meant where the filling is showing around on the second tier--linda mentioned it in her post so i was just saying it's the (dang) camera picking up the contrast in the chocolate cake underneath the icing because she said it was not noticeable to the naked eye

 

thank good ness we have such high falutin cameras to help manufacture issues for us -- and it's a total non-issue that is getting too much type/hype but it's the camera

 

sometimes they work to my advantage and do not pick up cake issues--this time they manufactured one--but seriously i am talking about it too much

 

the cake is not looking like a first cake at all

 

if you would have told me that stunning creation was smoking up the house a few brief hours before i'd a never believed yah icon_lol.gif

 

wow you did great teaching yourself the roses

 

and all the right placement and the sparkles and butterflies hovering hovering

 

well done, cake buddy!

 

very well done are you kidding

 

for a first cake wow

and for a first wedding cake--get outa here  You are making me blush.  I loved the way it turned out until I saw these photos and then I could step back enough to see how to improve it.  We are always so critical of our work, aren't we?  I am with my sewing, too.  I can see one stitch that is out of place, and I want to take the whole row apart. 

 

that dang camera did like x-ray vision that's the choco tier huh

 

it picked up the difference in the icing coverage from the choco cake to the filling  You are right!  Chocolate/with oreo filling.

 

the whole table is so elegant, loving and bridal--motorcycle and all!!!  The motorcycle was purchased by my daughter and her now husband,  Their first date was a motorcycle ride.

 

so everything went good/great?  Once the cake was finished, traveled safely in the car and then put on the table, I breathed a sigh of relief! And I brought about a gallon of extra icing with me just in case.  But never needed it!  The pictures taken at the wedding show a very tired mother of the bride, however. icon_biggrin.gif

 

how did you feel did you get enough rest? (no ;)  NO, NO , NO.  I am still so overly tired.  Just now cleaning the kitchen sugar-mess!

 

is it all a blur?  YES!  A big tired blur.  LOL

Well, I do feel better knowing it was the camera!  Yeah!  thanks for all the compliments.  Like I said, I am in awe for those of you that do this all the time.  I had NO idea how much effort it would take.  Baking cakes?  How hard could it be?  Well, I sure know otherwise, now. And of course with my panicky requests for HELP here, you KNOW it was not an easy ordeal for me.   I bow down to each and everyone of you that do this all the time.  It is truly an artistic gift that you all have.

I wanted to reiterate that the WASC recipe was the best choice, I believe, and thank you for encouraging me to continue with it.  After the overflowing mess, I was afraid to go forward with so many layers left to bake.  I made each layer twice, so 6 recipes (only have one pan of each size) and following advice on here, I cooked only one layer at a time and carefully watched it.  No more fiasco after the first one!  The taste of the WASC was wonderful, especially using the "chocolate fudge" Betty Crocker one.  With the oreos mixed into the buttercream, it was beyond yummy!  Any newbies reading this thread, I agree that the WASC recipe is the one to use!  Yummy, easy to handle (even with having to flip over larger cakes!)

i bet you were beat!
 
and the sugar mess--it waits patiently for you :) no hurry--will be there for you ;)
 
when my son got married i was terminally overwhelmed by his wedding and cake and all -- the kitchen was torpedoed i mean whoa it was bad--my dear little brother (those last four words never appeared in the same sentence before heheheheh ;) cleaned my kitchen--i'm still shocked--that was so sweet!
 
whooo hoooo-- and my husband often kept up with dishes when i was still doing cakes in the last years--not the first 30--can't promise they were clean exactly but they got watered and put away somewhere at least icon_lol.gif

Beautiful What a gift of love! My Daughter included pictures and candles of her brothers and Grandparents of both the groom and hers. People had never heard of that but I see it more all the time.

 

I think you did an awesome job and wedding cakes will be in your future for sure!

Can I post pictures of the veil with the bride and the groom?  (side view)  The rules say no actual people in the picture.  Will I get in big trouble?

I think you should post the picture, it was directly related to the content of the thread.  And I really want to see what teeny little sewing project kept you from baking cakes and making icing for a trial run.  K8, you are a blond?  For some reason I was picturing you with dark hair.  Funny how that is.
