My First Wedding Cake

Today, I finished and delivered my very first wedding cake order! The day was just perfect - I was thrilled with how everything turned out.  The cake was three tiers - the bottom, 12", tier was white velvet cake; the middle, 9", tier was white almond sour cream cake with berries; the top, 6", tier was white velvet.  The whole cake was filled and iced in white chocolate buttercream. All of these recipes can be found in earlier posts. Each tier was three layers of cake and stood about 6" tall.  The scroll work was designed to match the 'double heart' theme of the wedding with lavender accents.  The scrolls and borders were accented with small sugar pearls. 

The cake chilling in the fridge.  This was before the ribbon was finished  ... at about 2am! 

I moved the cake from the fridge to this spot on the counter until my very strong Daddy moved it to the back of the SUV. Thats my Mom (and driver) in the background - sorry about all the stuff around, I wasn't thinking about taking 'pretty' pictures, just documenting ;-)

All ready to go in the SUV! It didn't budge an inch for the whole hour drive - that non slip rug really works! 

Paul went along for the ride - he was such a trooper!

Detail shot I took while riding in the car - I love how pretty the natural light is. 

The cake all set up on the table and ready to be cut! 

Happy Baking!
