Dean and Heather got married!
The weekend was fantastic!
The weather could not have been more perfect, the menu was outstanding, and love was in the air.
I was so excited when I was asked to do the cake, and of course immediately began planning.
Because the only thing better then doing a cake, is doing a cake for friends!
Trusting friends, who gave me complete design control.
The only request was that it be vanilla.
I went with a traditional butter cake with a vanilla buttercream filling. Covered with a vanilla almond flavored marshmallow fondant.
Gerbera daisies, traditional daisies, carnations and statice top it of beautifully.
1 1/2 cups of butter, room temperature
2 1/2 cups of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
3 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of milk
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour pans. In a mixer bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Mix in vanilla.
Mix flour with baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with milk, starting with the flour.
Pour into prepared pans. Bake until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Loosen sides and remove. Cool completely before decorating.
