Well tomorrow is the big day! Not mine of course, my stepdaughters! Its going to be lovely of that Im sure, the venue is a vineyard here in Oklahoma. It is however in the middle of no where. No where is a one horse town called Luther and it really only consists of the said viineyard and a gas station (cant beleive I say gas station these days instead garage). I am lucky enough to have been asked to make the grooms cake, though Im not sure why the groom has t have a cake of his. Does this mean that he doesnt get any of the wedding cake itself, and the bride doesnt get any of his cake. I dont know, Im not sure of the rules about that, its all greek to me. Anyway I was pleased to oblige.
In my previous post you will see that I made a cake for the bridal shower along the same theme as the grooms cake. This was requested by the bride,(so now its the brides cake?) I wanted to use homemade fondant, I followed the recipe to the letter, dont know what I did wrong but I now have two pounds of goo (tastes good though), that I dont know what to do with. I ended up using not so gooey fondant out of a box, even though the taste isnt as good as the homemade it was not like a scene from The Blob. It did however perform very well on the cake which is a red velevet cake with chocolate butter cream icing.
There was however a vey sad event this week ,one of our barn cats was run over and killed this week. Funny because I dont usually get too close to the cats but this one was special. She was called Jack and I miss her.
