In all the many months of planning, my major role was to translate their wishes into the wedding cake of their dreams, which I've written about in the last few posts leading up to today. I wrote about the flavors, the design, and diving into the project, with all my hopes and anticipation about how it might turn out. I was nervous and a little bit worried, but in hindsight that was wasted energy, because the cake was successful beyond my most optimistic expectations.
So, here it is: a chocolate and pumpkin tiered cake with cinnamon buttercream and a fondant "birch bark" exterior. The leaves and acorns are also made of fondant. It was assembled, on-site and without a hitch, about an hour and a half before the ceremony.
I have more pictures to post and stories to tell about the wedding itself, the food, the people, the sights and sounds, but for now, here's a photo of Tricia's and Jeff's wedding cake, and the baker!
