Because people seem to enjoy cakes, I’ve decided to add another one of mine every once in a while. This was the cake I did for my sister-in-law’s wedding. It was my first wedding cake. I’ve only done two total. This was out on the hottest day of the year, and it wasn’t under a tent, so it did start to sag a bit by the time these pictures were taken. I still don’t know how I could have prevented it. I had intended to do borders too, but when I went to work with the chocolate fondant it was like goo in my hands on this hot day. I was in the wedding, so I just didn’t have the time to baby it like a needed to. I do have my practice cake pictured below so you can see the intentions for the border. It was a really fun cake to do, and it was actually relatively easy. If it hadn’t been so stinkin’ hot that day, I would have been overly excited about the results. I loved this design, however, and I had a lot of fun doing it.
