Wedding Cake

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 onĀ 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.”
Me: “Really?!”
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.

  3. GORGEOUS cake! And kudos to your hubby for being such an awesome helper–keep hold of him! :-)

  4. Beautiful!!!! What a wonderful hubby. I think it’s safe to say that my hubby really has no desire to make a wedding cake, in fact when I did make a nice cake fore his birthday he made it clear he wanted plain old rainbow chip the next time. *sigh* that’s what I get for trying. LOL. I’m glad the bride loved it! I sure would have! :)

  5. What fabulous work.It is no wonder the bride was thrilled. This is my first visit to your blog, so I decided to look through some of your earlier entries. I’m so glad I did that. You’ve created a lovely spot for your readers to visit and I enjoyed the time I spent here. I’ll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  6. That is very cool–a hubby who can bake! Looks very tasty too!
