Going to the chapel...

Here by popular demand is a picture of the finished wedding cake. It's a butter cake with raspberry filling and Swiss meringue buttercream icing, covered in vanilla-flavored ivory fondant.


The ribbons aren't edible or anything... my decorating skills aren't very advanced.
The wedding itself was lovely. The groom walked down the aisle to an acoustic version of Fugazi's "Waiting Room" played by his groomsmen.
This is a picture of me at the reception, taken by Bridget:

....clearly after a glass or two of champagne.

The cake went over very well and good times were had by all.

Next project, two cakes for a CD release party/art show. One of them has to be vegan. So that'll be an interesting challenge.

¡holy mother of pearl! that looks awesome! i love cake. i should eat more cake. cake cake cake. cake!

for some help with the vegan cake, it might be worth checking out Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World:

the cupcake recipes are great, but the frosting recipes are better. the butterless and creamless buttercream frosting is devine. just remember to always add at least twice the prescribed amount of cocoa into all recipes.
