I haven't been making cakes lately, I think I lost my 'cake mojo'.
The thought of how much time it takes to make a cake from baking to decorating kind of stresses me out.
Most especially when making it is a wedding cake, it is a bit overwhelming.
I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist as well.
So when my co-worker asked me to make a 4 tiered cake for her daughter's wedding,
I was a little hesitant to take the challenge.
Fast forward, here's the wedding cake I made for her daughter's wedding.
I love how my roses came out which I think is a big improvement from before.
The red ruffles took me almost a day to cover the second tier.
I'm not quite happy with my stenciling job as I'm a little bit rusty but I think it turned out great overall.
I'd like to thank my friend Susan for driving and helping me assemble the cake at the venue.
The best assistant ever..I owe you one Susan.
The drive was 1-1/2 hours one way.
This is a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Filling and Chocolate Cake with chocolate butter cream.
All cakes were frosted with Belgian dark chocolate ganache and covered with fondant.
I used gum paste to make the roses.
CONGRATULATIONS AMANDA AND SCOTT!
