Well, it sure has been a long time and it feels good to be back! Life just got so busy that I had to make some changes. I got married… that’s one huge wonderful change. 🙂 I quit my band…. that’s another big change. I also accomplished some major milestones at work (phew!) and am feeling more settled in.
So now it is time to get back to doing what I love. Making yummy stuff for people I love and sharing it with YOU!
There are a few delectables that I have created in the last year that I haven’t blogged about so I will recap those things for you. One of my ultimate favorites is a wedding cake for my friend Susan. Now I’m no professional when it comes to making desserts let alone wedding cakes but this one just turned out beautiful and I love it. I can do simple.
The bottom cake was chocolate with chocolate frosting, the middle was strawberry with strawberry frosting and the top was my yellow cake with vanilla buttercream frosting. When you can’t decide, you don’t have to. 🙂
The pink vintage flowers are from Tai Pan and the ribbon and lace were from JoAnn’s. (Make sure you look at the price of the lace you are buying, lace can be REALLY expensive!)
The biggest trick was matching the yellow to the wedding colors which was inspired from family heirloom dishes that were being used for the desserts. It was NOT easy. But huzzah! It was accomplished.
If you are going to use non-edible decorations on your cake, make sure the recipient knows that they are not edible and make sure the products are non-toxic and you wash them before putting them into the cake (ie: flowers stems).
So there she be.
Stay tuned for more 2015 recaps.
