This wedding cake was so fun! Placing the strawberries and doing the chocolate drizzle was my favorite part. I did get kind of tense while doing the drizzles though, at first, until I realized that it was going to drizzle down just fine.
When I did reading on ‘chocolate drizzles’, several people said that you can ‘control’ the drizzles. I was skeptical that you could do such a thing, but found that they weren’t lying 😀 Some used ganache, a chocolate and whipping cream mixture, and others used chocolate chips and shortening melted together. I decided to do it the chocolate chips and shortening way. I think it was a ratio of 1 c. of chocolate chips to 2 T. shortening…but I think I added more shortening and butter until it was as ‘drizzly’ as I wanted it.
I was so excited with how it turned out, I took a bunch of pictures to celebrate!
The wedding is only a 1/4 mile away…thankfully! Because I held it in the front seat while Susannah drove ever-so-slowly to the church. That’s the longest 1/4 mile I’ve ever seen! My arms were so tired and my hands were actually shaking from exhaustion when I was trying to type on the computer after we came back home 😀
These two cakes were for the rehearsal dinner tonight…
Thanks for sharing my excitement 😀
‘Sweet’ dreams, everyone 😉
