My Biggest Cake Order So Far

DSC01056It has been a long day, even though it is Sunday. We just got home from a quite fancy wedding held at the Hickory Street Annex in downtown Dallas, an old Gulf Oil building that has been beautifully repurposed. The bride is a former Wycliffe member and had asked me to make her wedding cake.

It wasn’t just a wedding cake for 200, it was also specialty cookies for 200 (and throw in a few gluten-free cupcakes, too!).  If you are interested in seeing how I made the cookies, look at this link.

This was the first time I had ever done a 12″ diameter round cake.  I think it ended up almost like the bride specified, not exactly, but close enough.  I won’t bore you with step by step cake construction because I’ve done that in the past, but here are some shots showing how we got the cake parts to the wedding (don’t forget it is 100 degrees here these days!), assembled it, then attended the wedding.  The cake wasn’t cut until 3:30pm after an 11am wedding, so it was a long day.  The party was still underway when we left with a Korean ceremony on the side.
