I'm sooooo glad THAT's over!

Well, today was the wedding. You all remember don't you? The wedding for the girl whose wedding shower date changed without my knowledge and therefore shower time arrived with NO cake in sight! Yes, THAT wedding. Now I did end up making the cake for her after all for a later shower, and no one was angry with me at all, but still....I have been anxious about this wedding for two weeks. I just so wanted every little thing to be perfect. Apparently, perfect isn't in God's plans for my life any time soon....

We had some cake issues. I think they were resolved to everyone's satisfaction, and she seemed pleased with the cake when she stopped by before the wedding and I was still putting it all together. She did ask for a few changes, and wanted to make sure that everything was going to be done -- right.

I made the changes, I got good responses from others walking by, and her dad said that he liked it and that was really all that counted anyway, wasn't it? I really like her dad! In fact I like both her parents, her sister and the whole family. They are really nice people. Yet another reason why I wanted to deliver a perfect cake.

I don't know if she will email, or call, or find some way to let me know if she was happy with the final result or not. It's a very few people that respond after they get their cake and let you know that they liked it. I usually hear from other people who were there as to the general population's opinion of the cake. I don't know anyone who was attending however.

Anyway, it was kind of a different cake. Not exactly my style, but hopefully it was what she wanted. And she DID say that the groom's cake came out beautifully...Ya-Hoo! Anyway, here are the pictures. And yes, I believe that would be my favorite groom's cake ever! LOL!





And here's the wedding cake...
It's a little difficult to see the details on the top layer and on the second layer from the bottom because of the backlighting from those windows right there next to the cake, but if you look carefully, you will see that the top layer has only a capital "V" written in script. (This is the happy couple's initial.) The second from the bottom is covered in swirl designs of different sizes.






So, my man just got home...a day early mind you...from his trip, and I need to get a few more things done on the homefront tonight, so I'll be signing off for now. Hopefully, I'll be around to catch up with all of you this week. I feel so cut off from everyone since the computer crashed. It's good to be back up and visiting again!

I can't imagine that she was anything but completely pleased with this cake. It's gorgeous.

The groom's cake is amazing, too. Aaron's groom's cake had a goat on it - apparently "goat" has been his nickname forever, or at least dating back to his gotee days. LOL

You did a great job. The bride was probably so discombobulated from the excitement, it never occurred to her to tell you she liked it.

I have to say, I love the stand that wedding cake is on.

The cakes look incredible! I am stopping by from the Preacher's Wife, and I have been by before - to specifically see the "female" cake, but I love wedding cake and think that there just isn't anything greater! :)
