I know it has been a while. I have been busy planning a wedding :) We are to be wed July 20th 2013. Lots to do in the next 5 1/2 months!
I will be making my own cake and cupcakes. The cake will be a dummy cake, so I can have that done in June. Paul wants the traditional tiered cake sitting there for looks. I didn't think it would be so hard for me to pick a design. I looked for about a week straight for ideas. I think I finally came up with something.
The one I found has some stencil work on it. I have never stenciled on a cake before, so I thought I better start practicing! I haven't baked since Christmas so I thought I would make my favorite chocolate cake. It has chocolate chips mixed into the buttercream in the middle.
I put the stencil on the top of the cake and used my straight edge spatula to smooth on the icing.
Peel off the stencil and I was done! Not too shabby for the first time :)
I hope you all have a great weekend!
Thanks for looking!
