Alright everyone! Here is is, the cake you have all been waiting for!
Let me start by saying, this cake was sooo much of a hassle! And it wasn't the cakes fault, it was all the people involved. Long story short, I was told I had to make the cake at a certain family members house (who had no cake decorating experience) because they were keeping me from making it with someone else who they didn't like in the family. Last minute my grandma, who the cake is for, called and wanted me to make the cake with her. My grandma is great and used to be a wedding cake maker way back in the day. The problem is she is almost 80 and doesn't really know what she is doing anymore. So anyways, I made the cake with her....but lets just say it came out less than pretty. So on the way home with the cake in the back of my car, I stopped at the family members house that I originally wanted to make the cake it and finished and fixed it. So thats my little secret, as far as everyone else is concerned, I made the cake with my grandma. Classy huh?
Normally I am against trickery and deceit...but on this occasion...I really wanted the cake to turn out well. lol
So anyways, with no further delay, heres the cake!
I wish I would have gotten a better picture, but its great for now!
Okay so the bottom layer is chocolate, and the others are French vanilla. Which by the way is a GREAT flavor for people who are burnt out on the classic "yellow" flavor. Honestly that flavor is so good, you could eat it without icing or anything. Maybe some milk :)
The top of each layer are covered in Wilton Cake Sprinkles to add a pretty diamond effect.
And now for the fun part, around each layer is a band of old pictures of my grandparents. Clever huh?
Okay so the topper is of course adorned with a ginormous diamond as this is the "diamond" anniversary.
The cake topper I bought online at exquisite wedding favors.com Kind of pricey, but very beautiful.
I really enjoy these cakes, but the stress of people, the actual making of the cake, not to mention the transporting of a cake \this size...I think I will stick to my cupcake cakes for awhile. They make more sense to me :)
Thanks for reading!
