K loves taking pictures to, he wanted to take one of the cake (i had the camera zoomed in from the others i had taken, so he got an extreme closeup)
All done...one half bigger than the other, adds character. :-)
Last night before bed, i gave the cake a crumb layer of icing and stuck it in the refrigerator to harden. I was super tired when i did it, as it was close to midnight, and this morning when i pulled it out i discovered the mess i had made. Thankfully, i had remembered the waxed paper to protect the plate.
This morning, i let the leftover icing warm while the cake stayed chilled. I spread the warm over the cold to (almost) get a smooth finish.
Finally, i decorated it. I just wrote 'Congratulations' on it (i had it right, but i put it into a spell check program and wrote it down first to be absolutely sure; don't want to end up on Cake Wrecks).
I added the loops and flowers because i thought it looked a bit plain, i used gel in the center of the flowers. Now all i have to do is remove the waxed paper and put a cover over it, and somehow get it to the other side of town with all my other goodies.
The color of the wedding is Hunter green. I tried my best to make this color, i used about 8 drops of green and 3 of blue in about 6 Tbsp of icing to get the above. I think it maybe needed twice that to get the real color, but i know she will appreciate it either way. Six more weeks to go!
