A friend from work hired me over a year ago to make the first of her three daughters’ wedding cake today. Chantal and Fred came by in June with a very clear idea of
what they wanted. In fact, they brought a picture. The theme was to be tropical and she was hoping for a teal blue cake with seashells on it. Her cake topper was a groom standing on the beach holding his bride.
Chocolate Guinness with a piña colada buttercream. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but it was fantastic.
I used a 12, 9, and 7 inch round cake pan. There was exactly 5 recipes altogether. I made 16 cups of buttercream and it was exactly enough and the cakes were all double torted.
I baked the cakes Wednesday night, made the seashells Thursday night and covered and decorated Friday all day. I was actually finished before midnight for once. The cake had plenty of time to erm … cure before delivery.
The whole thing went off without a hitch. I think I finally got a real hang of this.
I got a little creative while setting up, sand made of brown sugar.
I think it turned out fantastic and hope the other two daugters give me a call soon!
