At the end of September I delivered this wedding and groom's cake to The Grand Ivory in Leonard. The bride knew exactly what she wanted at the consultation. She brought me pictures of three different cakes and said I want the bottom tier of cake one as my top tier, the middle tier of cake 2 as my middle tier... That part of the consultation went quickly and the design was inspired by a glass of champagne.
We then started talking groom's cakes. The only real requirement was that they wanted to incorporate a tier that was painted to look like wood. I love hand painting wood grain because each time you get something slightly different and unique. We talked about where the couple went to college and came up with a design.
The bottom tier was a square cake covered in fondant and painted to look like a wooden box. On top was a buttercream tier adorned with the Texas Tech Red Raider's mask and cape, "guns up" signal, and the double T. My husband, an Aggie for life, had a hard time watching me make this one!
