An April Wedding
Last weekend, I attended my friends' wonderful wedding at Canoe. It is on the 54th floor of a building in downtown Toronto - what an amazing night! The wedding took place at 6pm and then we dined as the sun was setting - it was just perfect!
I had the pleasure of making their wedding cake - it was decorated with sugarpaste Peonies and pink sugar ribbon. The top and bottom tier were vanilla butter cake with swiss meringue buttercream. The middle tier was chocolate velvet with dark chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.
I also made the cutest mini-wedding cakes for their takeaways! These 2-tier cakes were vanilla butter cake with vanilla buttercream. They were 3 inches by 3 1/2 inches high. My friend Sam and I stayed up until 3:30 in the morning to finish them (Thank you Sam!). They were well worth the time and effort and matched wonderfully with the entire setting.
These mini-wedding cakes are definitely a Sweet Thing!
