As the owner of Unforgettable Wedding cakes andPerfect wedding cake, I am very excited to now be blogging!
I am blessed to be able to create some awesome cakes and I would like to share the experiences.
The plan is to post about my favorite cakes of the current month.
A very fun and challenging cake that I made, was for the August 15th wedding of Matt and Jessica. Their wedding was at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Fayetteville, Ga.
Matt's mother came to me with the idea of what she wanted for her son's groom's cake and together, we came up with a plan. It was to be a Georgia bull dog, "Uga", wearing a sweater, sitting on the football field. The cake needed to serve over 160 guests, so the base was a 16" square cake that Uga sat on.
This cake was going to be a bit interesting to create because of the way Ms. Rudy wanted it decorated. But I was up to the challenge!
Uga's legs where 9"support columns, partially covered in Rice Krispie treats, but the rest of the body was all chocolate cake, with red colored chocolate icing as a filling. He was totally covered in fondant. Special supports had to be engineered, but I won't give away all of my secrets!
I was working on the cake for hours and at 2 a.m. , the cookie dog bones that were baked to go on the sides were too heavy and started pulling away from the icing, so I had to come up with plan B, which was making fondant dog bones for the side instead. Finally, at 3am, Uga was finished!
I hope to get a better front view, but I hope you like it as much as I do!
