before delivery above! after Tim and I 'worked some flowers' into the columns.
This is the buttercream cake for Betsy Watson and Thomas Johnson wedding! of course an iphone pic in front of a huge window isn't the best way to take a picture--- I did what i could :)

well here we go-- this is my daughter's wedding cake-- 7 tiers-- yep-- count them-- 7 tiers... not only did she have 7 tiers, but it was decorated in an unconventional manner. It had a special coconut icing, rather than buttercream or fondant-- then COVERED in COCONUT.
Ahhh buttercream. Seems to be everyone's favorite. My husband despises fondant. I make some pretty tasty homemade marshmallow fondant- but no-- he hates it. He has gone as far as taking 'polls' at weddings--yes--polls.
Here is the latest buttercream cake -- 3 tiered traditional, very simple white wedding cake with sugar gumpaste daisies. and topped with Star Wars characters!
