With wedding season fast approaching, I thought I'd share some cakes done for a bridal shower a few years ago. The idea came straight from Wilton but was customized with the bride's colors and names of the bridal party. The bride's dress was placed on top of the petal tier upon arrival. The dress texture is comprised of sugar crystals for the bodice and mini fondant flowers with edible pearl centers on the skirt. The hangers are black royal icing.
I was trying very hard to make sure that I took some photos before delivery but as usual, that last hour before the cakes go out the door is always a mad rush for me. I'd failed to secure the bridesmaid's cakelets to the board for the photo shoot since I planned to transport them individually to the venue. Just as I finished and was breathing a huge sigh of relief, one of the cakelets went sliding off and the hanger broke. Luckily I had extras so it wasn't a huge disaster but what a heart attack these cakes can give us! And yet we come back for more . . .
Have a wonderful day!
