Ivory and Lavender Bridal Shower Cake
I made this gorgeous ivory and lavender cake for a bridal shower this past weekend. The top tier was lemon cake filled with lemon curd; the bottom tier was chocolate fudge cake filled with chocolate ganache and raspberry jam.
I think one of the challenges when starting large(r) projects is estimating how much you'll need in terms of ingredients - as well as time. It doesn't matter what industry you are in - it all comes down to resources and time! Just to give you an idea of what goes into a cake like this ... 6" and 9" square cakes, 3.5 quarts of buttercream, an entire recipe of chocolate ganache that uses 1lb of chocolate, a pint of lemon curd, just over a cup of raspberry jam, and about 7lbs of fondant, between covering both cakes and the embellishments. And yes - a lot of time as well. Whew!
Laura and Jay - wishing you a beautiful wedding day and a lifetime of happiness together!
