My 1st wedding cake!
I was so stressed out over this cake! It was my first wedding cake, my first 3-tiered cake and my first time using whipped cream frosting on a stacked cake. That's a lot of firsts! It did not turn out exactly how I had pictured it in my minds eye but I'm pretty happy with the end product. I was in disaster mode last night because I couldn't get the frosting smooth (note to self: NEVER use whipped cream frosting on a wedding cake again!) and the buttercream decorations I put on were starting to slide down the cake. Then, this morning I went out to buy flowers for the cake only to find out that (duh!) it's Memorial Day weekend and fresh flowers aren't that easy to come by unless you order them in advance. So, I bought silk flowers instead. I just feel like anything that could've gone wrong with this cake did go wrong. So, I'm just happy that I was able to pull it all together and it still looks like it's supposed to. Chalk this one up as a learning experience. Dad, are you still sure you want me to do your wedding cake?!
