Megan contacted us last year about doing her and Charles’s wedding cake. Their wedding was scheduled for June 15, 2013. They were going for the country chic them and she provided us with wedding cake and grooms cake photos that she wanted.
The wedding cake was to feed 150. It was to be four tier buttercream cake with alternating flavors, vanilla and strawberry. We baked two each of 14″12″ 9″ 6″ round cakes. My lovely and talented Aunt, who taught me all I know, iced the cakes for us while we prepared the grooms cake and dowels that would support the cake. We then stacked the tiers. We mixed up brown buttercream and began piping the twig like design around each tier. We attached the grapes for the final touch.
The grooms cake was to feed 100 and to be chocolate. She wanted to go with the muddin’ jeep theme for Charles’s cake. W began by baking two 14″ square cakes. Ben then carved away at the cake to make more of an off-road appearance. We then caked on the brown buttercream for mud and piped on the grass. She had us order a toy jeep for the topper. After it was in place, we added brown buttercream to the jeep and it was complete.
After 11.5 hours, the cakes were complete. We delivered to the outdoor farm wedding and cut/served the cake.
Many thanks to my Aunt for helping us knock out this bad boy and to Charles and Megan for allowing us to participate in such a special day. Congrats and God Bless!
