a happy little {wedding} cake

FINALLY it's done!  My first wedding cake!  And I'm beginning to understand why these things cost so much.  It was a lot of work, but I love it.  And I learned a LOT doing it.

Here's the work in progress:

1.  2 layered cakes.  9" and 6".  French Vanilla and Devil's Food with butter cream frosting.

2.  Cakes + more butter cream for a crumb coat.

3.  And... marshmallow fondant!  My batch incorporated too much air, so it had some bubbles.  :(

4.  But I'm becoming more and more of a firm believer in the cake decorator's motto:  "Butter cream will fix anything."  SOOO due to the fondant bubbles I picked a cornelli lace design that turned out beautifully after a few hours of decorating!  Here's the final product!  Fun!


  1. I love the lace frosting!!! And the flowers are gorgeous. Way to go!!!!!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! You are doing great!!!!
