Sydney is my cousin and I could not even begin to tell you how awesome she is. She is beautiful and so talented. She sings and plays the piano in a band called The National Parks. They are so good. Anyway, when Sydney got engaged and asked me to make her wedding cake I was thrilled.
Syd and Mike wanted different cakes, which was so fun for me to do. Syd wanted a simple white cake with very few succulents on it and buttercream that just barely had a texture to it. Also it had to be chocolate cake with Oreo filling because I’ve never met anyone who loves Oreos like Sydney does. Cookies and Cream is her favorite. Mike wanted a chocolate and vanilla Naked Cake with caramel dripping down the sides. So instead of making a compromise on which cake they should do I told them we could do both!
The succulents on Sydney’s cake were made out of sugar. Which everyone knows I love to do. I loved these succulents because of the color variation in the center. The inside is a pale yellow that turns into green then ends with the purple tips. I loved how these little guys turned out.
I think both cakes turned out perfectly. I am so glad that I got to be a part of Sydney and Michael’s big day. And Im so excited to have Mike join our family! Congratulations you two!
