Om Nom Bells are Ringing!

Posted by Ashley at 19:28
The big day! This beautiful cake was Erica J. and London B.'s wedding cake for their June wedding. They wanted a simple cake in lemon and raspberry with buttercream frosting and gum paste flowers. This was my first foray into gum paste (with all those flowers!) and buttercream in the outdoors. 

Let me just say, I love fondant. Fondant is strong, it's pretty, and the kind I make is actually tasty. This poor cake began sagging in the heat and required a few extra flowers to balance things out. Too bad, there was some interesting sugar pearl swirls under all those flowers!




The cupcakes were also lemon and raspberry, with buttercream icing and fondant monograms. A few edible sparkles were added to each cupcake after I heard the groom saying how his new bride made him "sparkle". How adorable!

I'm London, and speaking for Erica, Alyssa and the other 64 guests, this cake was absolutely fabulous! Having Ashley do our wedding cake was a dream come true, and we could not have been any happier. With all our hearts, we reccomend Om Nom Cakes. Have a great day!
