My Bride-Made Wedding Cake – UPDATE

2 Feb

I told you about my wedding cake already here and now I finally get to update you with some pictures from the photographer. She did a wonderful job capturing our happy, beautiful, unforgettable day.

Allow me to take this chance to tell you a little bit about the making of this cake. With the help of my friend I was able to fulfill my dream of creating my own wedding cake.

She was there with me going through all the unexpected hurdles, that included a chocolate cake not wanting to rise and last minutes stops at the store.

Finally, we had all for cakes filled, iced and covered in fondant. Now it was time for set-up at the reception place. While we were figuring out how to place the wine glasses to support glass cake boards we left my friend’s little 2 1/2 year-old son unattended for a moment.

And the cake-lover that he his, he took his chance and poked three of his little fingers into the side of one of the cakes. We noticed before he could pull off a piece of the cake. But some damage was done.

I didn’t have any fondant with me to re-cover the cake. And I was so exhausted by that time that I also didn’t feel like re-doing it at home. So we tried closing the holes has well as we could and changed the design.

Instead of having the big blue flowers centered on each tier, we put them on the side and turned the “holey” side facing the back wall. No one could see anymore what had happened and I actually like the new set-up.

Everything turned out well and I have a story to tell about my wedding cake for the rest of my life and maybe even at this little boys wedding some day 😉
