The Cake That I Made
One of my friends was getting married and wanted me to make a cake for her. When I saw the picture of what she wanted, I was nervous because I had never done a topsy turvy cake like that before (or any for that matter...not on a large scale like this).
Not only was I going to attempt making a whimsical wedding cake but I also had to drive 3 hours to get it to the location! Luckily the bride asked me 5 months before, so I had time to research. I found out about Cake Stackers. What a life saver! I purchased one and I really loved how the system worked. I stacked it without the top tier and my husband and I drove 3 hours without any issues! I was able to make this bride feel very special on her big day!
I would love to be able to buy another Cake Stackers system, but after paying for the last one, I would have to wait some more months to even think about getting another one, or at least have a reason to get it. I am just really happy that my friends loved their cake...and it got some people talking about the cakes I make too :)
Love At First Sight
When the bride and groom walked into the hall it was one of the first things they saw. They told me afterwards that they loved the cake very much, not only how the design turned out, but the taste of the cake as well.
Since we were three hours apart, we were only able to do one cake
tasting. They specifically asked me for a Baily's Irish Creme cake!!!!!!!!, Funny enough, when I made a sample of the cake on the day of the cake tasting, the bride informed me that she was allergic to chocolate LOL. The groom was the only one that could taste the cake that day and he loved it. So I promised my friend that I would accommodate her on the big day.
The bottom tier, (the one that they cut) as well as the top tier was actually a Vanilla Rum cake, with Vanilla Buttercream Filling. I also decorated and made an extra cake that was kept in the kitchen that was Baily's Irish Creme. They did not even have to serve it because many people left early to attend another wedding (yes, two weddings on one day with the same guests!)This was great, because the bride's family was able to take it home and share it with family members and the groom!
The one thing I learned that day about using the cake system is that there may be a chance that you will lose some pieces. Even though I took the cake apart, there were still some pieces that were lost.
The next time I do this (I have a cake for my brother's wedding and I convinced him to use a square design) I only have 1 square Cake Stacker system and have to travel a considerable distance away...lol) I will make sure that I count how many pieces I use and make sure I secure the pieces before I leave.
