Wedding Cake

I really haven't been up to too much these last few weeks, mostly hanging out at home all the time. But I did have this wedding cake to get done today. This was the first time I actually did a cake with the kids running around (usually I wait until they are asleep to do any cake stuff). I think it turned out how the bride had hoped. It was a bit of an adventure getting it to the reception in one piece. The reception was in Alpine and while I was driving up the hill to get to the house the top three tiers started to slide off the bottom tier. I thought I had it pretty well anchored but I guess I was wrong because I had to suddenly grab the top of the cake and hold it together while driving (the car which is a stick shift) up the hill to the house. Luckily I was able to repair any damage and it turned out well regardless.

Oh and in case you are wondering, I did the flowers too. Well I didn't grow them or anything. Really I just stuck them there. They gave me soooo many to work with it was great. I had like a dozen roses left when I was done, but I knew the bride didn't want too many flowers so I tried to restrain myself.

It's beautiful. Did you do the flowers, as well, or did someone else add those?

Wow, that story gave me anxiety just thinking about it. Glad it worked out. It looks GREAT in the pictures. And even more amazing you were able to do that with three crazy kids running around!
