Here’s the cake I made for Missy. It’s a three tiered white wedding cake filled with vanilla buttercream icing. It’s spackled with more buttercream and then coated with fondant. The flowers are made out of gum paste and painted with petal dust. The cake weighs more the Elliot, I’m guessing 30 pounds.
Missy wanted deep purple tulips to match her wedding flowers. The white ribbon is what she’s using for her bouquet. There was also the suggestion of using twine, but it shed a bit and I’m not sure what was used to treat it, so we left it off. In retrospect, I may have liked to try and create edible twine. Next time!
I hope you enjoy. If you have any questions, let me know. I hope to give a brief tutorial (for total beginners) in the future.
I have known Missy for 15 years. We both once lived in Washington, DC and that seems like a lifetime ago. I adore her. She is one of my closest friends. We don’t see each other as often as we used to, even though we live within a few miles of one another! But we always pick up right where we left off. She’s a lifelong friend. This I know.
Anyway, I love her. I’m lucky she’s in my life. And so I jumped at the chance to do this for her and I would do it again in a heartbeat, even though I was nervous as hell and lost some sleep!
Overall, I’m proud of the cake. Thanks, Missy and Adam for the opportunity to do something special for you.No tags for this post.
