Crystal is ridiculously creative! For example, instead of flowers, all of her bouquets were made of Christmas ornaments. They were so neat and unique! Her colors were neon green, hot pink, bright blue, and electric purple, and the reception hall was full of twinkle lights, bright Christmas ornaments, and decorated trees. The effect was a magical, whimsical Christmas wedding.
Obviously we needed a magical, whimsical Christmas cake to match that theme! After several different ideas and cake tastings, we came up with a round, 4 tiered white buttercream cake with different sized polka dots in bright fondant. Here is the cake prior to assembly, thank you Dave for helping me carry it down the stairs (the bottom tier weighed 40 lbs!)...
Amazingly, the colors matched pretty well, I was SO worried they would be off by even a little bit. For a topper, I made a curly-wire and fondant 'thing' that I'm not sure has a name, but I thought it turned out pretty cute!
Turned out ok, huh?
All in all, I was so pleased with how the cake turned out, and I think Crystal and Yeeka really liked it too! I was so happy to do their cake! Its a joy to do something for two people who are so obviously in love and excited to start their lives together. Many best wishes and blessings to the happy couple!
