Remember that wedding cake I made in May? Here's a photo
It took me like, a week! And a few weeks of planning and prep before that. Here's a few photos of production, if you're interested. (I know you are.)
Mix the flour and baking powders, salt, etc. Mix butter and sugar and eggs. Mix them together and add some buttermilk. Repeat like 12 times. Phew.
For the 32 cups of buttercream, I did this step a lot:
But before I could whip egg whites, I had to separate them from their yolky side-kicks...
And then- I added butter.
The process made like, a gajillion cakes...
Then I crumb coated each and every layer.
Imagine this, times 10.
The final step was assemblation. That's a real word you know...
And decorated it!
And have some cake, it's on me.
No really, I had a lot of cake on me by the end of the whole thing.
It was really good. I ate a lot of it. And received lots of compliments. And ate lots of cake.
P.s I'm 40 weeks pregnant and 2 days, now, and the contractions this morning amounted to nothing special. Just thought you might like to know. I'd post a picture, but my new camera is still being figured out...
p.p.s Georgia also took quite a few of these photos, but I'm not sure which ones. Give her credit, though.
p.p.p.s I'm now realizing how many times I used the word "like" in this post. Forgive me, but I kind of think it sounds good, so I'm not editing it.
