wedding cake I did yesterday.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I catered a wedding this past afternoon/evening up in Maine. Both Bride and Groom worked in the woods logging. It's a lifestyle up there. So, naturally the theme for their wedding was trees and woods. I'm sure some of you think that it's kind of lame or weird, and I was a little skeptical of the idea but it ended up being pretty cute. They all drank from Mason jars and even the bride had a big Mason jar wish a long wine stem, it was kinda cool. The reception took place in a pavilion that was constructed all from maple logs.

Anyways here is the cake I made for them. I do a fair amount of wedding cakes on the side, but they are usually just the typical looking wedding cake. This one is different and I was actually very happy how it came out.

Awesome cake artistry (size of tiers and flavors please) with a fair amt of carving as well as airbrush skill that leaves (pun intended lol) no doubt as to what it was supposed to represent.

How did you do the bark?

 

Additional comments are OT so sorry for the hijack (lol know you won't mind have to post it or face the wrath of the gods of the microchip).

First of all ... I love Maine (yes I do occasionally leave Texas lol) in early June (the Lupine growing wild everywhere are breathtaking).

Second...  while the theme may not be the choice of a Junior League socialite it is one close to the the hearts and minds of the couple, their family and friends so who am I to judge?

Third....  catch one or two episodes of the reality show about redneck weddings (hosted by Tom Arnold) and then you will know what "outdoorsy" weddings are like not far from where I live.  :eek:

I just have to ask...is that a target on the backside of your masterpiece?

Thank You KK, and thank you flipflop.

No lol, that is not a target on the backside, I believe what you are referring to is a napkin holder.

Sizes are 14",10",6" at 2 layer, 3 layer, 3 layer. I do a fair amount of airbrushing so it's not hard for me to stay pretty fluent with the gun.

The cake photo'd pretty well, but it looked even better in person. The camera seemed to lighten the color a bit. The bark was a more natural darker color but I well. I created the textured bark with a plain ole plastic bench knife/scraper from decopac and some crafty hand work

And yes, Maine is beautiful. I lived there for a little under 2 years some time back. My fiance still has family that lives there.
