I made my first Wedding Cake, I made Rose’s white butter cake with the Mousseline Buttercream from the Cake Bible.  It was for an outdoor wedding and reception in Indiana, the temperatures were mild, so am hoping that my buttercream held up!

Looks lovely.  Are those daffodils decorating it?  Daffodils are our national flower in Wales, UK.

Hi, Jrruth!

Welcome!

Your cake is beautiful!  I love the creamy color of the frosting with the flowers.  No doubt that the mousseline held up—it’s the most heat-resistant of the frostings, so if you had mild temperatures, you are definitely safe! 

Be sure to report back how much everyone loved it!!

Thanks for the complement!  I received an email from the bride, and she said that the cake was “wonderful, everyone loved it!”  She said she never heard so many complements about a wedding cake from her family before.  I am so happy that it all turned out well since this was my first attempt at a wedding cake.  I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to do one again.!

Yes those are artificial.  I haven’t attempted to make my own from fondant or sugar paste, but I would really like to learn.  In time I suppose.

What a lovely cake! You did such a wonderful job that I wouldn’t have guessed at all that it was your first wedding cake.

That is just ‘Beautiful’. I love the rustic background and then that beautiful cake makes a lovely picture. You did a wonderful job. Thanks for letting us see such beauty.

Your cake is elegant and pretty.  Flowers always add elegance to any wedding cake or any other cake.
