The Wedding Cake
Ta da! A simple wedding cake, created for a small in-home wedding (20 people) this afternoon. The bride is wearing a darling two-piece white suit that features covered buttons down the front -- thus, the fondant buttons on the cake. The groom wanted a soft pink rose with a pale green stem on top, so I took it a few steps further and came up with this design.
The bottom tier is a 9" two-layer, White Almond Bridal cake with strawberry filling, iced in buttercream and covered in fondant. Top tier is a 6" version of the same, and they will save that (well wrapped in plastic wrap and foil) in their freezer to be enjoyed on their first anniversary.
