This is the wedding cake Sharon and I made for mom’s wedding. The bottom layer of the cake didn’t bake evenly. When we put the wooden rods in it for support one of the rods stuck out of the cake and the plate we used to support the rest of the cake wouldn’t set right on the cake. So when we set the cake up last Saturday morning at the church, the bottom plate started sliding off the cake. It knocked all the fancy frosting work I put on the cake. We eventually had to take the cake apart for fear it would fall on the floor.
The night before the wedding, after the cake was all made, mom told me since I was so creative, I could make the decorations for the cake. I love doing this kind of stuff, but not at the last minute and not under pressure. So I went home and tried to put something together with the flowers she gave me and it just wasn’t going together the way I wanted it to. So at 11pm, the night before the wedding, I went to Wal-mart and got a couple of half Styrofoam balls and took them home to work on. I was up until 1:30 working on the floral arrangements for the cake…which my mom loved.
The top and middle cakes (you can tell it setting crooked)
The original plan was to put the arrangement on top of the cake on the center cake, but it was too small. Instead, I stuck the flowers I brought for the top cake in the center of the middle one. It turned out very nice…but I’m not sure I’ll ever make another wedding cake again…and I totally understand why they are so expensive!
By the way, the cake was French Vanilla and it had cinnamon apple filling, it was really good. We got a lot of compliments on the cake too!
