The Wedding Cake!

Seuss_cake_01The cake is an important part of every wedding. Who else would I trust to make the cake for my wedding, but my sister Judy.I wish I could go into the actual cake making process, but all I can really document is my small part in the process.

The Dr. Seuss style characters were made a while ago. (Karen Lou Who part One and Part Two, and myself) Then I shipped them off to my sisters with an idea for a starting point for her to work from.

This was just a starting point, we only had a couple of things we really wanted with the cake. Well, in all honesty, Karen actually wanted a wedding pie! But I was having a hard time figuring out how the cake topping characters would stand in a pie. So we compromised with tart flowers, and a topsy turvy cake.

Seuss_cake_02That was my part…the rest was up to my ever so talented sister Judy. (She was a great help in planning the wedding, I turned to her on many occasions.)

Seuss_cake_11Since we used peacock’s feathers on the boutonnieres and the bouquets, Judy incorporated a peacock feather pattern into the leaves.

Seuss_cake_03Because of the length of time the cake would be sitting on the table, Judy left the tarts out of the flower centers until just before the reception. She used a yellow disk as a filler until it was time to add the tarts.

The final result was this super cool, super fun cake. Once again my sister blew me away with her talents!
