About Me

My goal is to encourage more families to take the homeschooling plunge. It's a scary move but one you won't regret!

This was my first "real" wedding cake. It was a 4 tier cake covered in ivory fondant. The top and bottom tiers were 4 layers of chocolate cake and 3 layers of chocolate truffle filling, raspberry jam and fresh raspberries. The 2 middle tiers were 4 layers of vanilla cake and 3 layers of vanilla buttercream. The bride provided the leaves for the cake and I made a sort of scrolling design on each layer with royal icing.
It was lots of fun to make and definitely a learning experience! I'm looking forward to my next wedding.
