Sarah’s Wedding Cake

11 Oct

Sarah's wedding cakeTodays wedding cake came with a few surprises, first was the design, I had not done one quite like this. Straight lines piped around each tier was not as easy as you might think, at least for me. The bead border and monogram was fine. Second  the weather, was it going to rain or would it hold off till after the wedding. It almost held off. Thank goodness there was a tent on the grounds at Weymouth ( a beautiful historic home here in Southern Pines) for the  reception but the food and cake were inside the house.

The one bright spot while I was waiting for someone to bring me flowers to place on the cake, I got to see the beautiful bride in her lovely gown and all her bridesmaids.

The cake flavor was my classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. I made  the monogram E out of fondant. The table was covered with a coral pink cloth with a white lace overlay. Fresh flowers were a coral/pink to match the cloth.
