The Wedding Cake at the Wedding!
As anyone who reads this blog knows, I have been obsessing about wedding cake for some time now, as I had one to make. My cousin Elizabeth and cousin (now!) John Iannou's wedding was on Sunday, and it went off perfectly splendidly, in spite of a cool, fresh little rain and the fact that it was supposed to have taken place outdoors. The golf club where it took place had a lovely covered sitting area that worked just fine, and everything looked lovely. I at least was very happy it was not too hot; the icing didn't melt, hurrah!
I was sweating bullets up to the last moment. I took all the components down to assemble the morning of the wedding, as I knew I could not manage to get the cakes down undamaged if I tried to prepare them elsewhere. I got there at 8:30 am and was sticking on the last rosebuds about 5 minutes before the groom was to head up the aisle, at 11:00 am. However, it was done, and I got to my seat in the nick of time.
And there they are! Looking just as happy as I hope they will always be. Congratulations, John and Liz!
