A few weekends ago, my brother needed my help with a wedding cake setup. For those of you who are unfamiliar, he is a pastry chef and owns a chocolate/cake business. (handmade chocolates, and cakes.. separate. Not 'chocolate-cake'. ) Anywhooo.. it was a lot of fun to see him work as he is a phenomenal designer! Here is the assembly in progress, as it has to be assembled on site in a about an hour. Butter cream frosting and a delicate white cake. Ohhh... his cakes are more beautiful to eat than to look at (if that is at all possible).All the layers get stacked on site. The rose garlands, all handmade. Waiting to go up. Filling in the layers and hiding the stand base. Piping, piping and more piping. Up. Up. Up. The couple spent almost their entire wedding budget on the cake. It was front and center at their reception, a school gym. Almost all of my brothers cakes are done at high end resorts, so this was quite different. No air conditioning. (not a good combo with butter cream frosting on a 85 degree day.) I just love the little dot clusters. So cute! The finished cake! Dead center of the gym! :) Here are some more cakes he has made..
