October is Wedding Month
It's official -- I took the month off from the blog. It isn't because I was being lazy or anything, it's because of how many cakes there were and how much stuff I had to take care of in October. I started off with the Yavapai County Fair, which takes an entire week of my life. Organizing art, working with art teachers, hanging the show, getting it judged, dealing with vouchers, and all the other public relations that go with it. Oh, and I worked at the school that week as well. Good Lord and butter, Mabel!
The end of the fair week (October 3rd) saw my nephew getting married. The bride chose deep navy and apple green for her colors, and I supplied the welded steel cake stand and the idea for the little green poofs under each cake from Fry's grocery store bakery. My mom ended up having to whip stitch each poof to each ring support, and she called me at one point to say, "This is YOUR fault!" It ended up looking great with each tier having a different decoration as the bride requested. Different, lovely, and incredibly unique. What a lovely wedding! I'm glad I was able to help a little.
Tomorrow I'll go into detail on the next wedding cake I actually made. It was a lot of work but totally worth it!
