My first wedding cake! This is a turning point in my cake career....and I'm loving every second. Just to make sure I was ready for this, I decided to make oober amounts of samples for the lovely couple. (Shout out to Jeff and Gwen!)
Their selection was White cake with magnolia buttercream. There guests won't know what hit them! I'm even going to share the new vanilla cake recipe that I stumbled upon. Yes, this is where you jump up and down and thank me! I'll say your welcome in advance.
Creamy Dreamy Vanilla Wedding Cake
- 1 Duncan Hines White Cake Mix
- 4 eggs
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 small box instant vanilla pudding
- 8 oz. sour cream
1. Combined all above ingredients and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour into a 9*13 pan. Bake for 28 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
2. Once cool, top with Magnolia Icing! (Recipe in a previous post!)
3. Try not to fall off your chair. I mean...it's that good.
Here is a sample of the cake topper. The actual cake will be two layers with a bigger layer on the bottom that has blue ribbon and blue flowers. The top will have one large Tiger Lilly!
Cute, Cute! My bride has such good taste!
I decided that it would only be proper if I would share some cake balls with her. I made them with the leftover cake scraps and some Magnolia icing. My favorite cake ball ever. Period.
Here come the cupcake samples! There are going to be 200+ of these babys. So now, all that they need to do is choose. I'm just glad that I don't have to choose, all that I have to do is make them!! Yay!
Cutey Petuty heart designs!
A plethora of cupcake options! The cupcake at the bottom right was actually 1/2 designed by Blake, my brother. He thinks he's a fondant master now....so I'm trying to help him understand that just because he cut some fondant..he still has a lot to learn. He doesn't seem to understand. I'll just keep let him think he's a master.....I'd be stupid to convince him otherwise.
