Ok, last minute cakes are getting to be my specialty. Here is another last minute cake. I think I found out 4 days before it was due. So after work for the next 3 days I worked on this cake. It was for my Father-in-Laws wedding. I went off of what the bride told me over the phone. No pictures and my best guess of simple and classy. Here is what I came up with. The colors of the wedding were dark red and cream. The plan was to make the cake a cream color and do the piping in white. So I looked at my gel colors and saw a Wilton one that was Copper, and noticed it had “(light skin color)” next to the color, perfect for a cream color, or so I thought. Yeah it came out a very light pink lol. Oh no. I diluted it as much as possible hoping the bride wouldn’t notice or care. When I got the cake topper I thought PERFECT! It really goes well with the cake color. And then when I saw the bride the cake matched her dress!!! PERFECT!!! What a happy mistake.
Now, I had some problems with the bottom tier of buttercream. I kept messing it up so that’s why its not as clean and straight as the top. I tried to do an even ribbon of buttercream for the base and well it looked horrible. I decided to do the round dots. And you know what those looked like?…….. the brides pearl necklace!
Congratulations to Cassie and James!!!
