Everyone loves a bride, right? Thanks to the advanced state of my state, two of my girlfriends are getting married this weekend, and I'm making the cake. I know—what in heaven's name was I thinking?? That I love them and would probably do anything they asked me to.
I sent the girls over to look at my pal Jen's Perfect Party Cake, which they agreed looked perfect. After all, what is a wedding reception if not a big party?
I've been baking layers, wrapping them in yards of Saran Wrap, and freezing them. The wedding is on Saturday, so I'll probably be assembling and frosting tomorrow night. It's a fairly small wedding, so I'm only doing two layers.
They do look like brides, don't they? I though I was going to have to saw two bride and groom sets in half and toss the grooms, so I was all excited to find this pair sold together. Right on, I thought. But no. The man at the counter pointed out that these were bridesmaids. Who the hell puts plastic bridesmaids on a cake?? Isn't it enough to be flanked by a small army of actual women, without having to represent them on the cake? But my idea of sawing the bride and groom sets in half would have left me with one-armed brides, so I'm going with these gals. Maybe a little tulle on their heads?
