I made this cake for my cousin Chase and his wife Carlie. We thought it would be really pretty to match the lace of the cake with the lace on her dress so that is what we did. I think it turned out really beautiful. I love the white lace on the cream buttercream. It really makes the lace pop.
Carlie wanted all three of the tiers to be different flavors. So the bottom was red velvet cake with vanilla bean buttercream filling. The middle tier was lemon cake with raspberry buttercream filling and the top tier was vanilla cake with lemon buttercream filling.
I love making cakes for friends and family members because I get to be there when they cut the cake. Without fail, every time I am at the reception when they cut the cake people always ask me if it makes me sad to see it cut into. I always tell them no! I love to see it get eaten. The cake should be cut and served to the guests, that’s the fun part! I love when the whole cake gets eaten. It means that people loved it!
Thanks to Chase and Carlie for letting me have a part in their special day. This was one of my favorites.
