My cousin is getting married next July and I’m helping her plan her wedding cake. I don’t have much experience in the whole planning of a wedding but so far since chatting to my cousin it seems like an extremely long, detailed and expensive process. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it sounds fun too (when it all comes together!) and I know for some people it’s one of the biggest days of their lives, but I can’t believe that you need to secure venues more than a year in advance (they book up quickly!) and you have to think about the big picture, the room layout, the dress, photography, down to details like the colour of your nail polish and how much alcohol you are expecting each of your guests to consume. With so many things to do, no wonder some girls start planning their dream wedding when they are so young.
I still need to put the finishing touches to the mock up cake but thought I’d share some pictures because I’m so happy with how it turned out 🙂 It’s taken me a long time to make this so I think I still need practise and to work out how to get rid of some of the rough edges. My cousin told me she didn’t mind if we used real roses but I’m determined to make sugar roses that look just as good 😛
