Stephanie's Wedding Cake





So I found another outlet for my creativity. I really like the magnitude of the project of decorating a wedding cake - and there is something oddly satisfying that soon after you are done finishing this very expensive, very time consuming piece of art - you cut it up into a bunch of tiny pieces and people eat it. I don't think I have the energy to do this very often though - even with my mother-in-law baking the cake, and making the fondant and frosting in advance, it still took 13 hours the day before the wedding to decorate. Yeh - not - very - often. Still fun for once and awhile.

Heather that cake is beautiful! Did you take a class to learn how to do that, or did you just learn on your own? I have always thought it would be fun to take a cake decorating class. We got your card in the mail. You are so good about sending cards. I didn't get anywhere close to doing that this year. Maybe if I start thinking about it now, I'll get next years out on time.
