I always find it funny how the cakes that should be really easy to make are the ones that give me fits and leave cake splatters on my ceilings, while the cakes that seem tedious and that I dread making, because I think it will take me forever and a day, are the ones that I find to be the most relaxing to make.
Case in point: Today's wedding cake!
I was not looking forward to making a whole bunch of flowers. They are tedious and time consuming and I definitely don't charge enough for them.
But this time around I got into a groove and the monotonous rhythm of it was rather calming, add in some music and it was golden.
My time management was impeccable, no cake was thrown (some fondant was almost thrown but I controlled myself and ate a chunk instead), the older kids played great and Benj played well and then had 4 three hour naps over the two days. (So not only was that enough time to decorating this cake but more than enough time to read 3/4 of a book..BAM!).
This is the cake all set up in the reception hall. I forgot how hard it is to take good pictures in a gym. Of course I remembered the trick of no flash after I had taken this only full table shot.
I hope the bride and groom are happy and enjoy their wonderful evening and a long and happy marriage!
Oh, yeah and while making all the flowers last night, I helped Jason study for his college acceptance math test...which he did GREAT on! We hope it's enough to get him into college without having to upgrade any classes!
Anyway, I'll leave you with one last picture of Jamin sporting some wicked bedhead while sitting with Jason this morning doing some last minute cramming.
Have a great weekend!
