Caitlyn and Weston's Cake

 
My daughter made this fabulous wedding cake for her cousin! We were happy with how it came together. It matched the reception perfectly, and it's massive size fit the huge Provo Library Ballroom where the reception was held. It's covered with fondant, and the square layers are white cake and the round layers are chocolate cake, it had a yummy cherry filling in all the layers. I got to make all the buttercream for under the fondant, and my dd made the fondant, and did the majority of the work. I got to carry things, drive the car, and tie the bows on the wedding knife and cake server. We were happy with our mirror for the base, and the pretty flower topper too! It was all super fresh, she baked it last night (most of the night) and decorated it today. My oldest son helped her figure out the cute quilting pattern on the square cakes...they made a template and went to town, he also helped with the pearls and ribbon. DD's hubby also helped, took care of the baby, and carried cakes too. (not to mention herculean cleanup efforts) It took all three of them to get that fondant on the huge bottom cake...but it worked really well. Great job, great cake! Thanks Lindsay!

That is a beautiful cake! Is that a 14" bottom layer? yikes. I can't even imagine making something that large...well I can imagine it, but I'm sure it wouldn't turn out so well!
