*Sigh* Finally, after 3 days of shopping, prepping, baking, icing and decorating... it's finally done. My first attempt on a wedding cake. For my first time, I did not do too bad. I can see ALL of the tiny imperfections or improvements that I need to make for my second but this is a good learning curve and since it's my family, they would be more forgiving. But, they all love the cake, I received an arm full of compliments and most importantly, it tasted great! Now, I know what to expect and stream line production - overall I am very happy with the result.
Deb emailed me with a photo and she wishes to replicate it. After a few flavour changes, we decided to do an Espresso Cake with Mascarpone and Chocolate Buttercream with Rum Syrup. It tasted like a Tiramisu with a twist! We had a blast, great food, good company and a Yummy Dessert!
