My son got married in May and of course I did the wedding cake along with many other things….whew it was such a busy time to deal with all the things that had to be done and on top of it I had to get this cake done. Thankfully my soon to be daughter in law wanted a simple wedding cake since she is not like most brides these days who want fondant and all the bling….boy was I grateful for that!!! Their wedding was at a barn which was so cool and it turned out to be so pretty in the end. I loved it and they loved it which is most important.
I went to Michaels Crafts and purchased a block of wood from a tree which still had the bark on it and that was going to be the base for the cake….then I planned to use burlap around each layer of cake….and the cake itself was white cake with raspberry filling for 2 of the layers and one with Red Velvet cake and everything iced in Buttercream. I also did all the flowers too, which was so much fun, since I always love working with flowers. I also made the decorations for the reception too and had a blast working with burlap, and chalkboard paint on different surfaces.
I will share pics of the wedding with ya so you can see some of my creations…..
We did Choc dipped Pretzels for the wedding favors, we made these look like a tux and a wedding dress and put them in cellophane with a sticker thanking the guests for joining us for the wedding.
These are the bulk flowers I ordered from http://www.samsclub.com. They were delivered 2 days before the wedding I put them in buckets and then made table arrangements, bouquets and so on. I would so use same club for bulk flowers AGAIN they were beautiful flowers and I kept them alive for over a week after the wedding…great way to save money!!
