This project has been a year in the making – a wedding cake for a very dear friend’s much anticipated wedding. My most complicated project to date, the fondant covered cake was decorated with piped scrollwork, gilded fondant ribbons, basketweave embossing, and topped with a profusion of gumpaste flowers – blue and white daisies; gold and white fantasy flowers, complete with golden buds; pink rosebuds; and large open roses. We had to drive the cake more than two hours away – through DC traffic and terrifyingly bumpy perpetual roadwork – but the cake survived its journey. Set up took an hour, as all the gumpaste flowers had to be placed on site. The tiers were lemon ginger with lemon custard buttercream, pumpkin spice with maple buttercream, and chocolate with chocolate custard buttercream and an outer coat of vanilla bean custard buttercream. Congratulations again to Kyle and Betsy! I hope you enjoyed your cake!
