Celtic Monogram Wedding at the Grandview

This past weekend I delivered a cake to the Grandview, and it was a real cutie!  This time around, the couple wanted a fancy monogram on the middle tier.

I found a Celtic monogram font on dafont.com and printed it out on the edible image paper in really light beige font.  I then used this as a template to pipe my buttercream over it.  Pipe a layer and let it get cold, then pipe a layer on top of that. Once I have built it all up like I want it, I take a paintbrush and smooth everything out nice and smooth.

Amanda with Divine Designs did the florals on this cake and they really make it pop, don't you think?

Also, to my fellow decorators:  are any of you planning on attending ICES 2011 in North Carolina?  I have been looking at the schedule and trying to decide whether we want to go or not.
