The wedding cake, final result!

So I was looking through books that I have with cakes and I came across a gorgeous cake with Blue and Purple flowers. I thought it would be the perfect cake for my brother-in-laws wedding. I showed to them to make sure that they would like it and after I got the go ahead I set about making the flowers (I did tell them that I would attempt to make the cake, but seeing as how I hadn't gotten to practice it, I couldn't guarantee it, but would try my best). The cake required over 1,000 flowers. I ended up not having time to make them all so I had to change the design of the cake at the last minute. Well, sort of, I made the cake on Friday for the wedding on Saturday. I had absolutely no time to on Saturday to do the cake so I had to make it on Friday. The end result wasn't what I was aiming for, but I do like the way it turned out. I wasn't sure about it at first, but looking back at it, I do like the way it turned out. The bride and groom seemed to both really like it so that is what matters right. And apparently it tasted good too.

The bottom layer was white cake with blueberry filling, the middle layer was Lemon cake with cream chees filling, and the top layer was white cake with raspberry.

Details on the cake. I made pale buttery yellow roses, and pale purple roses, as well as lavender roses. I also made some indigo blue 5 petal flowers. The cake was frosted in a pale pale blue, with white "beading" and shell borders.

Over the next few days I will share photos of our trip, including pictures of my daughter in her school musical. :) I am working on some projects that I hope to be able to share with you soon as well.

WOW~! That is a beautiful cake - every element is so gorgeous! And I'm afraid I'd have to have a slice of each layer since all those flavor combinations sound so delish! What a special sister you are to have done all that work for them!~
