Hi everyone,
Here are some photos from the silver anniversary party. A big “thank you” to everyone for your help. This was my first special occasion cake, so I had many questions. I don’t think I could have done it without all of your advice.
I made two half sheet cakes (one chocolate, one white) frosted with white chocolate mousseline. I also made two round cakes (10” & 8”) that I stacked.
Everyone loved the cake, and said that it tasted much better then any bakery cake they had ever had!

Beautiful work. The white chocolate mousseline looks divine and the piping is lovely. The silver cachous must have taken ages to put on with tweezers! Well done!

Thanks for the encouragement! The cake was the white and chocolate butter wedding cake (pgs. 484-486) The chocolate was filled with whipped chocolate ganache and the white was filled with white ganache.
The cakes were both delicious although the chocolate was very dense…..almost brownie like. Everyone loved it, but I don’t think that was how it is supposed to be. Could it have become denser because I froze it before frosting/filling?
