Simple and Elegant

Yesterday was our first wedding cake of the year.  My customer was the Mother of the Bride.  Since her daughter was out-of-state, she did all the planning and ground work for her daughter’s special day.  She came to the tasting and said, “I’m not a cake person.  I like pie.” and walked away saying, “Wow, I really liked the cakes”!  That’s what I like to hear.  Over a few weeks, we worked out the details of the cake.  Her daughter wanted simple and elegant.  I think we accomplished just that…

They had fresh flowers waiting for me at the reception location.  I stacked the cake and placed the flowers.

The bottom layer was a white 14 inch round cake with lemon curd filling.  The top two layers were chocolate cake (10 inch and 6 inch) with chocolate buttercream filling.  I iced the entire cake with vanilla buttercream.  I added the beaded border after placing the flowers.  I was pleased with how it turned out!
