This week I posted some cookies that I made for my sister-in-law’s wedding. Here is their wedding cake! The bride was inspired by this cake on Pinterest, and this cake turned out just how she wanted it (Since she was in and out of the kitchen while I was decorating it, she was able to tell me exactly what she wanted). The adorable couple cut the cake early in the reception and served it along with their refreshments. The cake was lemon with a vanilla buttercream frosting. We used the lemon cake recipe from Sweetapolita (without the blueberries–Although, I have made that cake before blueberries, lemon filling, and all–it was fabulous).
Notice I said “we,” really I meant my husband. He actually baked the cakes while I was hanging out with his sisters in Seattle. Isn’t he an amazing husband?! When I was stressing out a bit about making the wedding cake (I have never made a two tier cake before, I had to make it the day before the wedding, and I wasn’t going to be working in my own kitchen), here is how our conversation went:
Me: “I’m a little nervous about making the wedding cake” (see reasons above)
Husband: “It’ll be okay. I’ll help you.”
Husband: “I’ve always wanted to make a wedding cake. Haven’t you?”
Me: “Of course I have. You really want to?”
Husband: “Yes, but it is a lot more fun when it is for an actual wedding.”
My husband not only saved my sanity, but it was also a fun experience to decorate a cake with him. The wedding was absolutely wonderful and everything turned out so beautiful. We also loved spending time with our family.
