If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a picture of my very first wedding cake a couple weeks ago.
I am not sure what I was thinking when I volunteered to do this, but I'm so glad I did.
It took at least 8 hours. Just baking 2 of each layer took 4 hours!
I think I may have convinced my husband that I clearly need my own bakery or at least a double oven ;)
He was SUCH a trooper.. That guy.. I love him. He spent every minute helping me including but not limited to; cutting the layers so they were perfect, frosting the layers with buttercream, and making sure all the ribbon was the right length. He even managed to snap a few pictures because apparently, he thought I was "really cute."
I don't have any fancy tools so we had to make-do with what we had in our kitchen.
But I am so thankful for my Kitchen Aid Mixer!
I was lucky enough to get some beautiful antique ribbon from a friend and I bought small candy pearls to layer the circles.
I was really happy with the way it turned out and the Bride loved it.. that's all that matters anyways, right? :)
