This whole wedding thing also makes me wonder if the guy (in general) is just as excited about all the planning and details or do they just go along because they know it's makes their future wife happy? If left up to them, would they rather a simple wedding with no frills because at the end of the day all they want to do is spend the rest of their life with the girl?
But on to the topic of cakes, I'm lucky my cousin is organised when it comes to her cake. After spending one weekend with her looking at potential ideas and what she wants, she decided on the design of her cake and even went home to draw it out and colour it in for me! Her theme colours are pastel pink and green (always a good mix). If she lets me, I'll post up a picture of her drawing but at the moment we are still working out how to get the cake layers to 'flow' better. She wants to top off the whole cake with a bunch of roses so last weekend I practised my sugar flower skills and made a bunch of roses to place on a mock up cake for her.
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 :P
I hope these travel well because her wedding is in Singapore *fingers crossed*.
