My First Wedding Cake

My sister in law recently got married and she asked me to make her wedding cake. I am all about good tasting food, but making things look pretty and elegant isn't necessarily my strong suit. I first told her no about 5 times, then finally told her I would. It was actually a really good learning experience. This was my fist time using fondant in anything. Of course I had to make my own fondant. Store bought fondant just doesn't taste good. I couldn't have anything I made somehow not taste good. The fact that it would taste good was the only thing I was confident about, so I had to make sure that it really did taste good. All in all it turned out pretty good. I was pleased with it, and she said it was exactly how she wanted it! It of course wasn't perfect, and I have no plans of quitting my day job to do wedding cakes full time, but I think I was pleased with the cake.

For the cake I used my Strawberry Cake recipe. I also use Strawberry Filling, and my favorite Buttercream frosting.
