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.
