I did this for the practice because I've NEVER worked with fondant before. I enjoyed it. The bride specifically wanted buttercream icing. She wanted a chocolate cake, but thought the bride shouldn't have one. So, I covered it with shaved white chocolate, just for fun. See pics. Grooms cake was specifically a coconut cake, LSU football field. Didn't quite enjoy doing that. The icing is was a marshmallowy icing covered with coconut.
My next project is learning out to carve fruit.
Thanks, Karen. I delivered it yesterday. There are plenty flaws, but the price was right ($50 for materials only) and the bride was thrilled. She had a pool wedding and her dress was a tropical party dress. The colors in the cake flowers are the colors in her dress.
Can't say I'll ever do this for a living, but I do enjoy dabbling with cake decorating. I had signed up to take a fondant flower class in July, but it got cancelled. So, thanks to youtube ..... I learned a little.
