Sorry for the lack of posts. My hard drive went out and since I haven’t learned any lessons on having a computer and important pictures, I never backed up my hard drive. So it had to go to the computer wizards to get my stuff off of the bad one and put onto a good one and now here we are. Enough whining, on with the pictures and post, right? 🙂
Wedding cakes are a great place to start, don’t you think? This wedding was at the end of July. The bride-to-be contacted me and said she just wanted a chocolate wedding cake. All of it to be chocolate. She had a picture of an idea of what she wanted and also added a recipe for Chantilly icing. She wanted to know if I would try it for the filling because she had lived in Hawaii for a while and missed that icing. I, of course, wanted to try this recipe. It turned out to be a caramel-like filling for the cake…and, oh so yummy!
The bride-to-be was pleased, as was her fiance, who really didn’t say much because he was eating. I like that in my customers! 😉
This is the final product on the day of the wedding…
Three tiers of chocolate cake filled with Chantilly icing. I covered the cakes with chocolate buttercream and chocolate sprinkles on the sides. I also used edible modeling chocolate for the curls. It was definitely a rich cake!
Also, it happened to be the flower girl’s birthday. The bride-to-be asked if I could put a “happy birthday” to her on the side of the cake. How cool is that? I bet the flower girl was on top of the moon with this…
It was fun to be out of the traditional wedding cake box with this wedding!
