I made my first wedding cake yesterday. Such an exciting experience! I can now say that I have officially made a wedding cake AND delivered it to the venue! It took me one hour and 8 minutes.
I was sooo nervous. Like, "what if I screw up their wedding cake?!" The lady came in to pay while I was mixing the teal color for it and I asked if the color was right. She said, "...It's supposed to be lavender." Good thing I asked! I almost didnt! Nowhere on the order sheet did it say anything about lavender, so I was going by the color on the picture I had in the book.
Anyway, I think I did really well for my first wedding cake! I got started and was looking at all of the pictures and I thought, "I've done all of this stuff before, just never all on one cake and never for a 'wedding cake' specifically." I think it's the title of "Wedding Cake" that got me so nervous. You just don't want to ruin someone's wedding day by messing up their wedding cake, ya know?
Here it is with the topper. Yes, I did deliver it. And there you have it, my first wedding cake experience. =)
