An April 1st Wedding Cake

It was no April Fool joke when a friend called early last evening to ask me if I could make a small wedding cake for TODAY!  She needed a small chocolate wedding cake with buttercream frosting.  I wondered how I could make such a small cake elegant enough for something as significant as a wedding.  I baked two 6" layers, put them in the freezer to firm up, and then started playing with fondant.  I'm somewhat fondant-fearful, so each time I use it, it feels more comfortable and I get more confident.  I formed the flowers, painted them with edible gold dust, and the photo here displays the finished product. 

I'm happy.
