The BIG ONE {Wedding Cake}

Alright.  There has certainly been a lot of pre-amble up to the making of my sister's wedding cake.  I had never done this before, and so I had to learn as much as I could in a short period of time!

My first big cake with my new pans turned out delicious - chocolate cake with mint cream cheese icing (you can't really lose!)

After that I needed to be a little more brave and make a 2 tiered cake!

Then I started working with fondant for my Uncle's 60th birthday cake

Continuting to learn on my Grandma's (lumpy) 80th Birthday cake

 I was particularly proud of the Skyrim Birthday Cake I did

The last practice cake where I played with some lace texture...

That wraps it up for practice cakes.

(This magnificent photo is taken by my sister's wedding photographer - Randal is INCREDIBLE! If you're in the Vancouver area, I strongly suggest working with him!!!  http://www.randalkurt.com)

It turned out great and I'm so glad that her photographer got so many amazing shots of it! (Thanks Randal!!)

I don't intend to be doing any more wedding cakes in the near future, but I definitely would for friends & family - provided I'm NOT in the wedding in!

  2. Beautiful! My mom has decorated cakes for as long as I can remember and it's always a journey of sorts. All of your cakes turned out lovely!!

    My sister and I host a joint party and we'd love for you to join us. Remember, when you link up at one site, it shows up on both my blog and my sister's blog too...double exposure!!
