My 1st Wedding Cake

Rachel's wedding cake 6-22-13

My sister’s friend Rachel was married recently and I was so excited to be asked to do a cake and 9 dozen cupcakes for her wedding reception. She decorated with a burlap and lace theme and used mint and silver as accent colors. Everything, including the table she had set up for the cake looked amazing! In keeping with this theme, I did a 3 tier cake with an upside-down buttercream ruffle, gumpaste peonies with the edges tinted mint and white rolled roses made out of modeling chocolate. The cupcakes were decorated simply with a coin made out of modeling chocolate and embossed with horizontal lines and an “H” monogram.

Rachel chose Orange Chiffon cake with Lemon Buttercream filling. I had never thought of using this combination before, but it was a a huge hit and definitely a combo I’ll recommend in the future. The cupcakes were also Orange Chiffon with Lemon Buttercream frosting.

I had such a great time creating this wedding cake and loved seeing everything finished and displayed on such a pretty table. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to do another one soon!
