I had the privilege of making a wedding cake for a friend recently. I really enjoyed working on it and was pleased with the outcome. It looks like fondant, but is actually all buttercream, smoothed with the Viva paper towel method.
We grew up in Western New York, but now both live in Pennsylvania...only at opposite corners. We don't see each other nearly as often as we'd like, but we talk frequently, especially about our 8 children...Andrea has 4: two girls and two boys ranging from 10 down to 4 and Amanda has 4: twins, a boy and a girl who are 5, a boy who is 3, and a girl who is 1. Needless to say, that produces a lot of cakes necesitating a continual supply of new ideas.
