I add these cakes from past years just to remind myself of my mistakes and i’ve made a lot of them and boy do i remember this one. It was 2006 and hot for May and the wedding and the reception were outside at the brides home. The cake table was set up in the sun, a real no, no. The family had created a sun cover for the cake but in 80 to 85 degree weather it did little good to shield the sun but looked very pretty. There was nothin i could do but stand there and watch the cake slowly melt, you can see the bulge beginning between the layers. I hurriedly took my picture, pulled the curtin around the cake and hoped that it all would go well. I wished for a short wedding ceremony. The grooms cake a large Texas “T” was placed in the house where it was much cooler. I can’t remember the flavor of the wedding cake but the grooms cake was chocolate and the sugar bow was fondant.
Now what did i learn from all this- #1 ask where the cake will be set up, #2 offer advice on set up even if they don’t ask you, & #3 cut back on the butter content in the frosting on hot days.
