Somehow my sister recruited me to make another wedding cake for a friend.
This was the inspiration. She wanted it to look just like this.
It looked easy enough, so I agreed.
But as the date got closer and gave it some thought, I realized this cake would be a lot more difficult than anticipated.
I had several anxiety attacks over this cake. It may look simple, but to keep that tall middle from tipping or leaning over was practically impossible. The whole time I just kept saying, "why am I doing this, I am not a professional baker."
I was more precise with this cake than ever before. I measured everything and even used a leveler, but I still couldn't keep it from leaning.
In the end it was a good learning experience.
The bride loved it and it tasted amazing, so I'll count it as a success anyways.
Since I have a few pictures, I thought I'd show you some things I loved from the reception.
I loved the old warehouse building.
Loved that she used a dresser for the sign in table. The birdcage was so cute too.
Loved the pom-pom wall, it was stunning.
My sister also talked my mom into doing the flowers. I loved the use of the yellow billy ball flower (aka craspedia).
I especially liked them used with the boutonnieres. Pretty but still very manly.
