Julie, The cake tiers consisted of 3 layers:  Yellow butter cake, Chocolate Devil’s Food cake in the middle, another layer of Yellow Butter cake. In between the layers there was dark Chocolate ganache that I mixed with some Vanilla MBC. This was Patricia’s recommendation many moons ago. I mixed in just enough MBC to make almost a dark mousse consistency.  I crumb coated with the Vanilla MBC, waited a couple of hours and added another thin coat of MBC.  The next day, I rolled Ivory Pettinice Fondant on to the cake.  The one thing I learned about the Fondant is that it rolls better and stays better with either a mixture of corn starch and confectioners sugar, or just corn starch.  Rolling with only confectioners sugar makes it too dry , thus cracking on the edges. The 12 inch round (had to roll a 24 inch circle) had one small mishap of a crack…..thus an extra flower.

I feel a little guilty, as I didn’t use Rose’s cake recipes.  If you want to know the one’s I used , tell me.  I’ll try to post some more wedding pix as they come. My picture size is too big and my daughter made the cake one smaller so I could post.  She didn’t show me how to do it….she’s now back home in NC.

Here’s the Bride and Groom, Alexandra and Matt

thanks Patricia. I’m waiting to get a shot with the Bouquet held lower,  so you can see the dress.  Matt looks like such a kid in all the pictures!  Well, he is only 25…looks 17!  Haven’t gotten any of me yet…I can wait.  By the way, do you have trouble sizing the picture for the site? I went crazy today to do these 2.

All my photos are too big.  My son installed some kind of image resizing program for me and now I reduce everything to “medium” before I post it.  So far that has worked great.

On the photo resizing: do you have a version of Microsoft Office or Word? What about AOL?
