Braggedy Anne strikes again...

Because sometimes...

well - Autumn is just around the corner right? and Pride comes before the fall???

Whatever...

the fact is - the cake???

I rocked it.

First person to ask if those are gumballs around all the layers gets shot in the earlobe.  (they are fondant pearls, all handrolled...)
and no, I did not make these flowers by hand - the bride picked these out herself at TaiPan. (much easier for me!)


Maybe someday I will tell the WHOLE story...  the one that involves ten children munching on large pieces of cake disposing of evidence before my composure cracked as badly as a 16 inch layer when  someone doesn't perform a perfect flip/flip to get it out of the pan...


But for now - I'm just breathing a sigh of relief that it is made, displayed, cut, and eaten...

and now I can go back to reading your blogs this week :)

I think you are absolutely crazy to take on a wedding cake, but it looks like you could handle it!
Awesome job.
I still think you're crazy.

The cake turned out to be very beautiful. Are you going to check "decorate a wedding cake" off of your life list now or are you holding out the possibility that you will really desire to decorate your kids cakes one day?

That's AMAZING!!! I just may have to hire you when I get remarried....(which will be a long time from now....)

You rocked it girl!

Gina said...

1- You did rock it. Seriously rocked it. It looks beautiful.

2- Somebody asking if those are gumballs is really compliment: you hand rolled something that looks completely perfect.

Enjoy your day(s) of bragging. You earned them :)

Holy cow- I can't even make a double layer cake without it looking lopsided and cracked. The cake is gorgeous. Too bad it was eaten!
