Lemon Wedding Cake

Easter weekend, our troop was splitting up.  I was headed up to Northern Indiana with the kids for Greek Easter with my family.  The hubs was staying behind to do some serious planting at our farm.  The Monday following Easter, a co-worker was getting married in a small wedding on the north-side of Indy.  She had asked me a month earlier how I felt about doing wedding cakes, and I said I don’t do them.  The confidence is just not there.  I am not that good and could not manage the stress of ruining someones day!!! Two weeks before Easter, she still had not purchased a cake and asked me seriously.  The wedding was for fourteen people and really low-key.  I decided to go ahead and do it knowing I was going to be out of town most of the weekend.  EEK!

The request was for lemon with buttercream.  She just wanted something simple and had bought a Harry Potter topper for the cake.  Easy enough but it still made me nervous!  As soon as I agreed to do the cake, I made my lemon layers to make sure my cake came out nice and sturdy.  Thankfully they did first shot!

Lemon Cake Layers

After all of the Easter weekend festivities, I got to work on icing the cake Sunday night. She was borrowing one of my cake stands, so that was helpful in making sure everything was set before going up to the venue.  I made both layers but left them separate to transport.  The worst part of making goodies for people is the delivery.  I am sure it would have been fine, but I did not want to leave anything to chance on someone’s wedding day.

Base Cake Layer

The morning of the delivery, I put the supports for the second tier into the cake and boxed everything up.  The cake made it just fine and I was able to quickly stack the cake and add the border to the first tier.

Harry Potter Wedding Cake

It was simple, but elegant and perfect for her fourteen person wedding.  Maybe she will send me a cutting the cake picture to add to the blog.  Now I will stick to kids birthdays for awhile!
