OK. Here's a nice story. It's from GRUB STREET.   Have you all heard of a chef Sang Yoon?  He owns a coupla' places, Father's Office and Lukshon.  Anyway, he's got a heck of a history.  They won't allow ketchup, it's banned. There are no modifications whatsoever, even the way your burger is cooked and/or whether it has blue-cheese on it or not.  I've never been there myself, but these stories crack me up. Too bad for you if you don't like it. There is always a line to get in. Go figure. Now, he's got some issue with a "Yelper".  Here's the story, it's a good read. I hope you enjoy it.

After several conversations with some wonderful people (you know who you are) this is the end result. Not bad for a home cook with little baking experience. Thanks everyone!

Senor Partagas,

 

If that is a little  'baking experience', then I can't wait to see your next project ! You did a great job.

Looking forward to more of your talent.

 

Petals.

Thanks, petals!

Not only is the cake breathtaking but the song is one of my faves.

Of course I started blubbering like a baby!

Everyone warns "Never, ever, ever make your own wedding cake".

Well you can if you plan ahead!

And who is this "everyone" anyway?

One thing I see in hindsight that I would like to correct in the future is the "flatness" of the fondant work. Is it possible to "polish" the fondant, maybe rub it with a little shortening?

Once your cake is finished, prior to decorating (and even after if you want) apply some steam to the fondant, it will give your cake luster and a sheen look, a very light steaming I might add, this will give your cake the finished look you are looking for.

ps some use vodka or water , better yet here is a thread that goes into it. Adding shine to fondant? Hope that helps .....
