This cake was for a very sweet young lady. The picture she gave me actually had the callas only a little on the top and on the side, but the buttecream on this one gave me so many fits that I just wanted to cover the whole cake up to hide all the buttercream horror. I realized while making it how much I dearly LOVE fondant, teehee. Now, if someone wants to give me a used refrigerator so I can use Italian buttercream, I would be more than happy to make more all buttercream wedding cakes. But, for now, fondant is the winner for me.......espeically with the summer heat and humidity here!
Details......I made over 50 gumpaste calla lillies for this and I loved how they turned out. I learned a few new tricks with them too. :o) The cake is not too big - a 10,8,6. The fun tidbit on this one was that I had to take it fully assembled, so it had at least 11 dowels in it! And praise the LORD, it made it all the way to Seymour in one piece!
