So I've told you about the cake I made for my friends' wedding.  Well, here's how the wedding went down...for Señor and I anyway...


ONCE UPON A TIME in a Canadian town, there was a beautiful bride in a pretty white gown. She held her groom's hands, as they said I do, in front of friends and family and co-workers too.

 
 
Friends of mine are getting married today.  A few months ago, they asked if I would make their wedding cake.  They explained to me that the meal being served post-ceremony came with a slice of cake as dessert, so it wouldn't really make sense for them to pay a lot of money for a giant cake that no one is going to eat.  However, they still wanted a one-layer wedding cake that they could cut together, as tradition goes, one from which they could keep a slice in their freezer for the next 25 years.  I agreed to make the cake as a present to them :)

What they envisioned was a white, one-tier quilted fondant cake with purple and silver/slate accents to match the colours of their wedding party.  Lucky for me, I knew how to do that.  Well, kind of...I figured it out.  And I'm going to show you how I did it.  With a little bit of patience and a lot of wine...wait a minute...
