The cake was a 2-layer, 14" inch diameter marble cake (black and white), filled and frosted with my standard buttercream, and decorated fairly subtly with the palest shades of pink, blue, and green. (It was BIG and acutally the size of the bottom tier of a wedding cake!) Along with the simple decorating, I like to write "white on white" on such cakes, to show respect for the occasion.
It was pretty late last night when I made the quadruple batch of buttercream frosting and started to put this cake together. The cake has a bit of a rustic finish -- I was going for a somewhat "lovingly made for you" appearance, and I'm glad I went with that, because Cassie so loved it when she saw it.
I left as they were getting ready to head to church, and I trust that all went very well, and that they came home to enjoy a luscious buffet and a slice of cake!
God Bless little Penelope and Carter. You are indeed little angels.
