Family friends, Dakota and Brian, got married a few weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to make their wedding cake!
Rustic and fall, maybe sunflowers, Dakota said. Otherwise, she let me create whatever I wanted. Yesss, I love getting to do that! This is why I give away my cakes for free; if people were paying me, they'd want to tell me what to make. ;-)
I got to teach myself how to make that birch bark effect fondant, and how to make edible fall leaves out of wafer paper. I love learning new techniques and having an excuse to buy new tools!
Pretty pretty fall colors.
And I really love this bark texture--so easy! This is the tutorial I learned it from.
Congratulations, Dakota and Brian!
