My sister just told me she's getting married in a secret gretna green ceremony early next week, and she's leaving for Scotland on saturday morning. Tres romantic!
I have an idea to buy her one of those ready made iced fruitcake jobbies from asda, and decorate it myself tonight before she comes over tomorrow. But what could I do to it tonight to make it look weddingy? Is it do-able?
It'd need to be something fairly simply, and most of all quick...
Our wedding cake was homemade - really simple white icing 3 tiers sitting on top of each other (had to insert 4 dowling rods into the bottom 2 tiers so each layer wasn't sitting directly on top of the other one iykwim) fat ribbon around the edges & decorated with the same flowers I had - white roses - oh and the cake dec which was from confetti.
Get yourself a huge bunch of pretty roses. Take off the petals and sugar them (egg wgite/caster sugar)and sprinke them all over the cakes to resemble confetti. Add a big ribbon in matching shade et voila.
I have bought a small iced fruit cake, and I have:
pink roses (real) pink and white ready made icing stars/swirls white piping icing baby blue piping icing red, green, yellow and black writing icing (doubt I'll use those though) caster sugar, icing sugar and sprinkles!
Can't start it yet as I'm working, but wondering what to do. Tempted to pick off the nasty white piping on the cake, pipe out a load of baby blue forget-me-not style blossoms onto some greaseproof paper, leave them to dry til tomorrow then carefully apply them in a swathe over the side of the cake. I'm sure it isn't as easy as it sounds though!
The other option is to make a tiny bride and groom, which I could in fact do! hmm
