1950's Wedding Cake

Whew! By far my most difficult project. I had no idea I knew so little about butter cream. I have to say, if I was 20 years older, I probably would have never gotten into cakes because butter cream is not nearly as fun. With that said, I am actually happy and proud that I pulled this cake together. It was for a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary-WOW! And their family put on the coolest party I've ever seen. They gave me a picture of the couple's wedding cake and wanted to replicate it. You can imagine the little detail I could figure out with one, it being a 50 year old pic and two, me knowing very little about decorating with butter cream. I told them I would do it the best I could but it wouldn't be exact. I tried to paste the original picture in but I'm having a hard time with it. It's a little taller and a little more pink than the picture but it came out closer than I thought it would. I worked 10 hours on this cake on Saturday and I have to say I am wiped out! I had a few panicky moments when I couldn't remember how to do a butter cream rose and when I couldn't figure out a few other things but I managed and I have something new to show. Again, whew!

Cassy- All anyone could talk about the next day was your amazing cake. We all thought it looked perfect but didn't expect the incredible favor they would have. I can't even pick my favorite flavor . . . chocolate, lemon or white. All were delicious-yes, I tried all three. My mother-in-law was in tears as soon as she walked in the room with her wedding dress and replicated cake, she was so taken back. Thank you so much again. I'm glad I found you. Can't wait for the next big event.

I'm a granddaughter of the couple celebrating their 50th. The cake was amazing. Thanks so much for all the hard work! Not only did the cake look as cute as the original, but I'm sure it tasted better than the original. It was awesome!

You're blog is the cutest and we absolutely loved the cake for the party. The similarity between the two was amazing, even down to the swan details. Thanks for making such a cute cake.
