got cake?

Yesterday I was allowed the awesome opportunity to make a really simple cute wedding cake. At the beginning of the planning period I was going to make a three tiered cake with two sheet cakes for the wedding, but when it came down to business time I was only on the gig for a small two tiered cake. One hour into the cake production I was very happy to be downsized. Nothing usually goes right on the first try in my baking world, so smaller is definitely better. I went with my classic white cake that I've done many times before. It's not my favorite to bake because the process is a little intensive, but the results are always fabulous tasting.

Just a little peak in my bake lab world. Once again, I'm very blessed to have such resources at my fingertips!

Another fabulous detail about this cake is that the florist is creating arrangements to put on it. I don't have to worry about that either so decorating is super simple.

I'm still trying to figure out the settings on this camera. It's amazing how the light can make the buttercream look yellow.

The best part of this wedding cake day was when the groom came to pick up the cake which meant no agonizing delivery driving. Delivery is seriously one of the most nerve wrecking parts of the whole experience. Thank you Groom!
