The worst part of doing the wedding? Putting fondant on the cake! Utah is much dryer than Texas and so is the fondant. Several attempts spanning the whole afternoon were made to get that darn cake covered with fondant. It kept cracking and falling off. Finally we were in the last quarter of time, and last box of fondant, and last stash of crisco when it worked...well at least we had a "good side." The cake was sprayed with edible spray paint, the pearls "glued" on, flowers added to the top and a really wide satin ribbon added to hide a few of the flaws. The cake was leaning to one side so we pushed it over on the pedestal to make it look straight.
Imagine our surprise when the pictures of the cake looked so good!
Last job on the cake...taking it down the stairs to the table, which I gave to the groom who passed it on to to a buddy:)
