What a crazy week! I worked a lot on a 5-tier square wedding cake for a display at the Chattanoogan Hotel, in Chattanooga, TN (duh!). I wanted to create a modern cake with an arts & crafts feel like the hotel. If the cake was real it would have fed 350 people and cost about $1400 and I did it all for free (well for advertising!) I'm trying a new plan this time with this cake. Most fade so very fast that any colors are almost gone in a month. This time I used chocolate to color all of the cake, from ivory, to champagne to dark chocolate.
Well lots of sample cakes are ready for a bridal consultation tomorrow as well as some baby shower cupcakes. There is so much left to do! I found a recipe for a Guinness cupcake with a whisky wash and Baileys butter cream. It would be yummy for a St. Patrick's Day party we are attending Saturday.
Well, gotta go bake for fun now!
