My sweet obsession
Well, it’s over. The cake is finished, cut, and eaten. When my sister and I were assembling it at the venue, I commented to her that I figured someone was praying for me because it went off without a hitch. I was later told by my bride’s mother that she was praying for me throughout the morning. God is good.
I kept to a fairly tight schedule on Thursday and Friday nights, and over-packed for my work at the venue. The top 3 layers were completely decorated before packing them up and the lower two tiers were covered with fondant only. My thinking was that the lowest tier was large enough to pose a cracking risk so I wanted to be able to cover up any flaws with the harlequin design. I also transported that tier sitting on a 3/4″ board to avoid the cracking – it worked. Unfortunately, I had to spend a lot of time at the venue decorating the lower tier. Next time, I’ll decorate it before I go.
The bride and her parents loved the cake, and for once, I have to admit that I did too. My family is always saying that I am way to critical of my work, but this is the first time that I really couldn’t complain. The cake itself must have been good, as I didn’t notice any leftovers as I was leaving the reception. All in all, it was a beautiful wedding day – for the bride and groom, their families, and the cake. Never doubt the power of prayer.
