I got the cake iced no problem and made the fondant with little trouble. It actually had a nice beige color to it which made the lace pop a little better.
After I assembled the cake, I decided that the simple design of just having the lace on the bottom of both of the tiers was not going to look that great.
I tried a lot of different piping techniques on the tiers, and after wiping three of them off, I finally went with the shell along the bottoms.
|you can kind of see the flaw here. grr|
As you can see, I went with the first flower choice. The other one, I felt, was too big for the cake and didn't have the simple elegant look that this one had.
Anyone else have any thoughts?
I had a great time making this cake and I can't wait to see pictures from the wedding.
Congratulations to the newly wed couple, Matt and Sara!! Thank you for letting me be a part of your special day =]
