This is going to be a quick post. I’m exhausted (and still slightly hung over—I think it’s only fitting since I started this project inebriated that I should have ended it that way, too). My cousin’s wedding was last night. My Aunt (mother of the bride), who works in the St. John’s Episcopal Church office, got me access to the parish hall kitchen to work on the wedding cake. I’ve got a series of pictures of mixing, baking, making buttercream, decorating, etc. more or less from start to finish, but I haven’t had time to sort through them yet and I wanted to put up a picture of the finished product.
Thanks to everyone for their advice and support through this process… Thanks to Rose for an excellent reference to guide me. Who’d have thunk I’d have a wedding cake under my belt just 14 months after picking up a piping bag for the first time? I’m pleased with the way it came out, and looking forward to a bit of a hiatus from all things cake-related.
I’ll post more specifics later. If anyone needs/wants a recipe for a marble version of Rose’s cakes, I’ve got a spreadsheet with 6in, 8in, 9in, 12in rounds, plus a 12x18in sheet version.
I’m taking the dog out for a walk, then I’m collapsing into a coma
