Wedding Cake and Favors

This time, I adventured into wedding cakes.  :)

Pilar's brother got married this past Saturday,  it was a beautiful small wedding at her home. We had so much fun, my feet are still hurting from all of the dancing!!!

The bride wanted something simple with a flower bouquet as focal point.  After watching MANY videos on how to make gum paste roses, daisies and lilies on youtube, ee started to experiment. Little by little, and following directions with a lots of trial and error our floweres started to look nice.

The cake was a yellow cake with pecans and a strawberry cream filling.  It was "delicioso"!!!
And here is the cake:


More pictures of the bouquet:



The flowers were dusted with edible luster dust (pearl).




I love how all the flowers turned out.  The tutorials that we followed are from the Expertvillage and you can find them on youtube.com

I also created wedding favors for the happy event, I used a Lettering Delight file from the collection "Valentine Cone Boxes".




The white card stack that I used came from Core'dinations "Pearl" and assorted shimmer paper from JoAnn's. The ribbons are from JoAnn's.
