When I was thinking about how I wanted to design the cake I knew I wanted to make it simple, yet elegant and timeless. Trendy cakes are good for certain parties and celebrations, but a cake for something as special as a Holy Communion should be classic. When Cullen’s parent’s gave me some ideas of what they wanted the cake to look like, I knew we had reached a perfect place. Their idea of classic and elegant was perfect for what I wanted to do with the cake.
As I stated before, this cake is like no other cake I have done. Cullen’s parents were having about 30-40 people at their house to celebrate, so the cake would have to be enough for everyone. But since it was a sculpted cake, I had to subtract some of the serving pieces and make the cake high enough so that when they cut the cake, each guest received a substantial piece. I know I like to have my cake and eat it, too!!
This cake was the heaviest cake I have made to date. I think I used 1,000 lbs of butter between the cake and the icing!!! So needless to say after I delivered the cake, I desperatley needed to sit down. My back was very sore!!
This cake was so fun to make and I am so glad I had the chance to help make Cullen’s special day a success!!!
