Today I delivered this All White Scrollwork Wedding Cake. And surprisingly – it was a mostly relaxed day. This is Day 22 of the Write 31 Days Challenge.
I stayed up late last night getting a good foundation laid so I didn’t have to do much work today.
First I baked all the cakes and let them cool. Then I spent several hours filling and frosting and trimming and covering in fondant.
With all of that done, I slept late this morning, then when I did get up, all I had to do was dowel it, add the scrolling and then the pearl borders. It took well under 2 hours to finish it up!
Let me give you some details about this lovely cake…
All White Scrollwork Wedding Cake
The tiers were 6″, 9″, 12″ and 16″ for a total of 200 servings! From the top down, it was confetti cake with vanilla buttercream, red velvet cake with cream cheese buttercream, chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and vanilla cake with vanilla bean buttercream.
It was covered and decorated with homemade marshmallow fondant.
After I finished the cake, I actually spent some time answering emails and comments, then getting freshened up and dressed for delivery. Usually I’m flying around like a crazy woman before a wedding cake delivery, so this was a very nice change of pace!
When I arrived at the venue, there was this gorgeous square cake stand and also some fresh flowers that were going to be added to the cake. I hope to see pics of it finished!
I also took a few pictures before I left home, but gosh, the lighting was off:
Anywho… after the cake was delivered, the hubby and I went shopping at Walmart, then came home and had a pizza and movie night with the kids. I’ve spent some time editing pictures and doing blog work, but overall, I just relaxed!
I’m trying to savor this weekend because next week is already lined up to be another insanely busy week! But it’s downhill after that… I’ve determined to make November and December easy and slow to enjoy the holidays with my family.
OH – if you have any questions about this cake, leave me a comment!
