Flower Wedding Cake


Before I show you the cake, I have something to say:

Dear Fondant,


You and I will never be friends. You have caused me heartache over and over and over again. Friends don't make one another cry, like you have made me. I know I have tried to stretch you too thin at times and that is why you tear, leaving my buttercream to show through. What I don't understand is why you refuse to be smooth. Why must you always crease when I try to smooth you out, no matter how hard I try? It exhausting and humiliating! I can't take it anymore. I have been patient with you and you have failed me again. They say "third times the charm" but they are wrong. I am sure we will meet again in the future, but it will not be my choice. I hope when the day comes, we can be decent enough to one another. And if not, "there is always a backside to every cake" and plenty of royal icing flowers to cover up the boo-boos.


Sincerely,

Amanda


Now on with the cake!!



I completed my first wedding cake and overall I am pretty proud of it. I did have some fondant issues as you already know. ;o) But I was able to cover up most of my mistakes with flowers. I am not going to lie, it was stressful making this cake. I dreamt about icing cakes for like 3 nights straight! lol Anyways, it is based on a cake by Peggy Porschen. It is buttercream covered in fondant. The flowers are royal icing and the topper is made from pastillage. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Amanda,
    I really love your fondant story. Very funny and so true. Lord knows I have been there in tears myself over fondant. Very nice job. I can't believe this is your first fondant cake. I believe you have a future in this. That is if the fondant doesn't drive you mad!

    Would you be interested in writing on my Wedding Cakes For You Website and posting your progress? Good luck to you in your endeavors.
