Wedding Cake

 I know it's been a while since I posted but I have been baking.  Mostly its been practicing for a wedding cake we made last weekend so there weren't really any pictures to share.  But now the cake is done and delivered so I can post some pictures of it.  I think it turned out pretty good but boy was it heavy.  I'm glad Bob was around to help me deliver it or they might not have gotten their cake. 

The bottom tier was vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream, the middle was lemon cake with white chocolate buttercream and the top was red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.  Everything was edible except for the ribbon.  I cheated and bought that.  

Bob made the stand the cake is sitting on so now I have something to put cakes on that I don't have to try to cover and make look nice.  One less thing to worry about.

Overall it went well but there are still lots of things to work on.
