We've been planning this day forever it seems like!! I love my best friend and her new husband so much and was thrilled when they asked me to be her Matron of Honor AND to make their wedding cake. Amy chose silvers and pinks for her wedding and LOTS of sparkle. She also asked me to make a special surprise for her husband for the reception: a Hockey puck grooms cake with his favorite team from Florida. I had a lit of fun making this cake. I wanted it to be perfect. For the first time, I used a technique using chocolate ganache under the fondant instead of butter cream. Though it was a messy job, I really was happy with the final look as well as the way it tasted. I will never forget that day!! I have included a few fun pictures to show some of the many steps in getting the cake planned, prepped, baked and assembled. FUN!!
Out of all of the years I have been creating cakes, this is the first time that I have ever been asked to do a Harry Potter themed cake. Our neighbor Blake was turning 9 and his mom asked me to make something small and fabulous for him as a surprise for him when he got home. I had fun with this one. I did a little research online and came up with something I thought was pretty cool. His mom said he jumped up and down and was thrilled when he saw it. That makes my job so amazing!!
