The Cake

As Candice pointed out to me this weekend, I still haven't put up pictures of the week we spent in Lynchburg and Brian's wedding. To be honest, I didn't think many of my readers would even know Brian or be interested in his wedding...but as Candice points out I did make a cake.

As you can see it is clearly not professional, but it was my first attempt at a wedding cake, and my first attempt using fondant. That show "Ace Of Cakes," makes it look so simple. It is NOT THAT EASY. Several attempts later, and a little lopsided--here is Brian and Dawn's wedding cake. I think I will let them order from a baker when they do their formal wedding next year.

You can see my other cakes here (if you haven't already).

Oh, and I will get started on uploading the pictures from that week and leave a link when I finish.

Well, it looks pretty good to me! I'm guilty of just dumping any cake into a 9x13 pan to get out of having to icing layers!!!

BJ- Love your cakes, especially Barbie :) There's a lady in Lynchburg that does cakes and you might also get some ideas off her website. It's www.coffeycakes.com, and she has done about 10 cakes for my family in the past 3 years.
