Caines-Pearl Wedding

What a joy and honor to get asked to make the wedding cakes for my neighbor.
I made their engagement cake and they liked that so much, that Lauren wanted to have me for her wedding and groom's cakes also.

Here are the ribbon roses after they were placed on the cake at the reception hall. These are made of pink fondant and then brushed with pink and super pearl petal dusts to give them dimension and shine. These were a lot of fun to make, each one has it's own shape and "personality". Here is the cake put together. This thing was heavy! I put two tiers together before I got to the hall and then finished assembly and cornelli lace piping there. Placing the edible pearls around the bottom of each tier was quite time consuming, but I think the overall effect was lovely.

Once it was all put together I needed help to move it onto the cake plateau in the center of the table.


This is the triple chocolate groom's cake. It is covered in yummy delicious chocolate buttercream and also has the cornelli lace pattern to coordinate with the bridal cake. This is a replica of their engagement cake.

It is a sweet and personal message on the cake. "Grace is a treasure, a Pearl of great price."
Lauren's middle name is Grace ~ and she is definitely a treasure.
The groom's last name is Pearl ~ and what a nice way to honor the value of their relationship and newly shared name.

I wish the Pearls a lifetime of love and happiness! Thanks for letting me share your special day with you.
