Emily's Cake

This was a very neat cake I made for a wedding this last weekend. We took it to "The Home Place" in Calhoun, GA. It was a beautiful outside venue to hold a reception and wedding. It was the prettiest place I've seen in a long time. Luckily the weather was great. I was so proud that Emily chose a colored wedding cake. I think it really made a nice statement on the pavilion. A white wedding cake would have gotten lost and not really added much to the look of everything. I handmade the little pink roses out of fondant using 3-circles, overlapping a little, rolling them up and pinching them a little to flair the roses. Each set of 3 circles gave me 2 roses. I then painted the edges to give them the 2 tone effect the bride wanted. The cake is iced in our house buttercream (a French buttercream) and is very soft so I put 1/2 a toothpick in each rose so they wouldn't slide off half way through the reception. It's not about it just looking good when you get it there! It has to stay pretty for hours!
