Last minute wedding cake

Okay blogger posted these backwards, but here is the finished cake. TaDa!

We had an unexpected wedding this past September. Daughter#2 was recently engaged and set her wedding date for October 2010. However in her true impatient fashion, she decided to get married the end of September this past year. We had one week to pull a wedding together! After everything was done I decided I had a new career called Last Minute Wedding Planners. She won't let me post a picture of her but I am going to post her wedding cake. I made it. I never made a wedding cake before (and hope to never again). Baking it was the easy part, decorating it not so much. I watched 20 million youtube videos on buttercream icing and fondant. My hubby is a handy guy so he helped me.

Well, your daughter saved you a year of planning! I wish more people would go for a quick and simple familyd wedding, rather than the ridiculous garish expensive things we see on the tv. :-)
