HEY! What did y’all do this past weekend? I made my very first wedding cake!! And then on Sunday I took a much needed two hour nap. Ahhh. I have been stressing about doing a wedding cake since the bride contacted me months ago. Granted, I grew up with her and she knew it was my first wedding cake… plus she’s super laid back and cool. However, it was still her big day and I didn’t want to be the one to eff it up.
The weird thing was that all last week while prepping I was completely calm. I didn’t even stay up past 10pm on ANY of the nights I worked. That NEVER happens. I’m usually up until 1am finishing up cakes. I was able to get everything done and all I had to do on the day of the wedding was stack the tiered cake. (She also ordered two huge sheet cakes).
The only time I was stressed was driving the cake to the venue and then carrying it up to the cake table. I just had visions of tripping or something going horribly wrong! But thankfully, I had Ben to help me with his strong arms! (Big shout out to my sister for watching Molly!)
I just have to say that I am very proud of myself and am excited to take this big step in my cake career.
