St. Patrick's Day Engagement

The groom's parents were hosting an engagement party last night -- they wanted a fairly sophisticated cake with a St. Patrick's Day theme rather than a wedding theme. In my mind, St. Pat's Day and sophistication don't really hang out in the same room much, but this was my attempt at bridging the two concepts.

This is my white almond sour cream cake with buttercream icing and fondant decor. And a few shamrocks exploding out the top. Organza ribbon at the base of each tier. Words printed out on photo paper and "stuck" to the fondant banners.

Sorry! I know y'all are in withdrawal. Wedding planning takes more time than I thought!

I'll have a couple of new cakes up by Saturday, then it's all-wedding, all-the time ;-)

Wedding cake photos by the 9th of April. Stay tuned.
