A couple of hours later I was almost finished when I ran out of plastic wrap. Since I am leaving tomorrow for Nashville, I was hired to make the cakes and hand them over for someone else to decorate. I was surprised at how much I WANTED to decorate them after working so hard to bake them. Oh, well, next time. Oh, that square of white is 4 lbs of buttercream icing.
Almost done. I had to take a picture of the bottom layer before I stacked it because it looked so yummy with the strawberries. I just wanted to eat it!
I stacked them to make sure the dowel rods would hold the weight, and because I was curious to see how tall it would be. The brides cake was as follows: 12 in white with almond flavoring and strawberries, 10 in orange juice cake, 8 in banana cake and 6 in same as bottom. The grooms cake was: 10 in chocolate covered cherry, 8 in chocolate chip and 6 in mint chocolate.
This was dinner! :)
