sweet wedding cake

I just finished this cake for a small wedding.  It is an 8in and 6in vanilla cake.  I used the recipe from Gesine Bullock- Prado's book Confections of a Closet Master Baker.  If you love to bake and dream about opening your own shop you have to read this book!

I made the flowers using gum paste and fondant mixed together.  I made roses, hydrangeas, lily of the valley and some tiny filler flowers too.

I think its beautiful, if I do say so myself :)

I used two 8x2in and 6x2in each. these pans are by Wilton

my favourite vanilla

getting that butter and sugar nice and light and fluffy

I iced the cake white and made the flowers using ivory and yellow colouring.  I also dusted them with luster dust also by Wilton

I hope the bride will love it as much as I do and their marriage is just as sweet
