I’m so excited! Yesterday I finished my first wedding cake! It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and my friend and co-worker, Loren Wood (who legitimately, with her culinary degree, is a wedding cake maker), gave me the chance to be her assistant baker/decorator for a wedding she was hired to do. I made all of the rounded white flowers that look like paper whites, Loren made those beautiful chrysanthemums, and we hired a crazy women to do the dogwoods (she messed them up big time by airbrushes the centers green–we fixed them, but I can’t tell you how). I think it turned out SO beautiful! We are for hire if you live in the Birmingham region and want a cake! The cake was a lemon white cake with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream frosting. I wish I could share the recipe with you, but it’s not really mine to share! So I guess you’ll just have to hire us if you want to try it. Sneaky, I know.
Can you see the sparkles on the flowers? Preeeettyyyy.
