• A CAKE TO MATCH THE DRESS…

Cake  – 01.03.08

A great friend ‘s sister asked me earlier last year to do her wedding cake. The reception was originally planned for The Riverfront Plantation in Dover, but due to a terrible fire, the historic building was destroyed just a month before the wedding. She moved her reception to Rose Ella in Dover and went with a golden theme. She wanted a vanilla cake with buttercream to feed 30. She went with a square shaped cake with the design of her dress decorating the sides. She provided the top monogram and off I went.

I began with  2-10″ and 2-6″ square cakes. After icing them in buttercream and stacking the cakes I free-handed the gold luster dust tinted buttercream on the sides of both tiers matching the design on her dress.

After 5 hours baking/decorating it was complete. After we delivered the cake we placed the monogram topper and piped the gold beads as accent on the letters.

After attending the beautiful wedding at our church, my mother and I headed back over to the reception to dine with the family and cut/serve the cake. It was such a beautiful evening and such a pleasure to be a part of. Special thanks to Mrs. Gail Morgan for the wonderful dinner, Mr. and Mrs. Elliott for the wonderful company, my mother for the help  and to the Bride and Groom for allowing me to play a part in such a special day. God Bless you both.
