I cook the octopus by dipping it into a pot of water that has been brought to a rolling boil and then set to medium heat. I hang the octopus over the pot of water and dip it in and out. I do this 3 times counting 5-10 seconds on each dip. This allows the proteins to break down quickly so to say, it won't tighten up like a rubber elastic if it was just thrown into the pot of boiling water. Once the dipping is down , I let it cook for 40-50 minutes depending the size. The...
Yes, spray the tops with a mix of bourbon simple syrup and toss a dash in the frosting.  I would not waste cooking with it but let it shine as an accent.   Pete, I couldn't agree more.

How far in advance ? Bake according to when you have the time. You can bake the cakes, cool them right down, wrap well and freeze. Defrost in fridge overnight and then frost day of the event. I agree with with Lauren , pick something light. It also depends the look your going for , being that it's a wedding cake. You can always pipe roses on the cake with the buttercream . It can get piped in 5 minutes . I'll post a video if that is something you might like to do. You...
I'm curious to know what your preferences are MK ?
