A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of making this white wedding cake for a gorgeous July wedding. The day was sunny, the venue was decorated beautifully and the cake fit in perfectly. The bride sent me a picture of exactly what she wanted and asked me to re-create it for her. It’s an all buttercream cake with royal icing used for the piping. Most of the piping I do is in little bits here and there within a design. Good piping takes a lot of practice, although people with experience make it look so easy. It’s worth the effort though because it can be so pretty when it comes out well. I worked slowly and spent a lot of time making sure all the sections were even, but the finished product was definitely worth the time spent. I received a very sweet e-mail from the bride after the wedding telling me how happy she was with the cake. Hearing that made my whole day. The whole goal is to help make someone’s special event a little extra special and it feel so good to know I achieved that.
