Yesterday was a big day for my family - my little sister's wedding! It was an *amazing* day, and everything was just perfect. The happy couple is now on their way to spend the week on white sand beaches - those lucky ducks!
My gorgeous bouquet:
My gift to the new couple was something sweet - cake, of course! I'm really happy with how everything came out, and how everything held up on such a hot day (it was 90 degrees+, with at least 80% humidity). I made a 4 tier cake, and cupcake centerpieces for all of the tables. My sister wanted to incorporate her favorite flowers - gerbera daisies - into the design for both the cake and cupcakes.
The cake was white velvet cake with fresh cut strawberry filling, draped in fondant. My new brother in law is a Second Lieutenant in the Army, and was VERY excited to cut the cake with his saber (which is why you see a sword in the pics!)!
Cupcakes! White velvet cake with fresh strawberry buttercream filling and vanilla swiss meringue buttercream. Daises made out of gumpaste, and dusted with petal dust.
Many thanks to everyone for making this day so amazing. And a BIG thank you to my boyfriend who delivered the cake, set up all of the stands, and orchestrated the set up of all of the cupcakes - without your help, none of this would have been possible! <3
