Wedding cake.

My FIRST ever wedding cake. I don't like to brag, but I think I did ok! We had Young Women in Excellence so I was able to use my skillz to make a cake for our "wedding reception" decor. It was fun to do, but a little time consuming.

Don't mind the 2 flowers that fell off. :) We used some hymn books to prop the cake up and those two flowers got pushed off. I used my emergency frosting to do a quick fix but came back later to find they weren't sticking (I think because there was so much frosting on it already). Thanks to Sheryl for the pics! I, of course, forgot my camera to take any of the finished product.
A side note: I'm sad because our ward just went through new changes on Sunday. Our ward was split and so I'm no longer in the YW! Cross my fingers they put me back in. I'll miss everyone who was split to go in the other ward!!

Oh WOW! That cake is gorgeous! I love the flowers. You should brag; you did a great job.

That's too bad about not being in Young Womens. I hope they snatch you back up.

That is AWESOME! You have a serious talent - maybe you should go into business with Sarah and do like 6 cakes a year for fun! I love the flowers and maybe I'm blind, but I couldn't even tell where the two fell off.

We're so excited to be back in the ward with you again. I hope you stay in YW, too!

You did such a great job on that cake. I think I need to take the same class you and Sarah took. It looks amazing.
