Buttars and Willis Weddings

So last year, shortly after I moved home, my mom was asked to do a wedding cake (among the zillions she's done). They wanted fondant, but she does not do fondant. So we came up with the idea that I would try to do the cake in fondant, and if it didn't work out then she'd do it in buttercream and no one would be the wiser. This is that cake- (snaps the the people who find the hidden Mickey-that *oh yes* was put there on purpose)

Personally, for my first ever wedding cake, and my second or third fondant cake, I think it's pretty good. We delivered the cake just like this, then the family put their own flowers on it.

I guess they liked it enough to recommend me to a newly engaged couple. For the first time ever I had a couple come and toss around ideas with me.  They gave me a general picture of what they wanted- and this is what they got.

 If you click on the picture, it makes it a little bigger and you can see the detail of the white on white design. Again, the flowers were created by the family.  They said specifically where they were to go, so I hope they are pleased with the final product. I'm proud of it. The company they hired to do the backdrops and tables and stuff liked it enough that she asked for a business card so she can recommend people to me.

Heaven help me.
