Wedding Cake commissioned

Good morning my dearies,
I wanted to quickly share my commissioned cake with you.  If you remember I had made a cake last week and you can see it here.

My friend Amy at Love to Crop has a challenge for the Decorate to Celebrate blog.  The theme for this challenge is WEDDINGS, ENGAGEMENTS, and BRIDAL SHOWERS!!  So we want to see all of your decorations and party supplies celebrating everything fantastic about the UNION of two people in LOVE!!   I just couldn't resist in creating this beautiful Wedding Cake.  Now as I said, this was very time consuming, but I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it turned out.  So here we go, (picture heavy):

The Bride to Be's Mother gave me swatches to
match the colors and it turned out perfect.

I didn't have any brown lace, so I created a mixture of
brown acrylic paint, hairspray and copper pearl and
misted the tan lace.  It came out perfect also.
I then etched the plate with their last name and
the date of the wedding day. 09-10-11

I used my E6000 glue to attach a candlestick to the 
plate after inserting one of the matching flowers that 
I made inside the candlestick.  This was they will
always have a permanent flower within the plate.
One last look.  I am so happy with how this 
turned out, and so his the Mother of the Bride.

So now hurry on and create something for a Wedding, Engagement or Shower and enter the challenge at Decorate to Celebrate.

  4. Wonderful job. So creative. In the mixture for the lace, was the copper pearl an acrylic paint as well & what does the hair spray do? Does it help thin out the paint so it will spray in the mister? Never would have thought of using that, but then I'm not a very "think out of the box" type of gal. That's my problem.

  5. WOW!! Look at you! This is beautiful! Well done!

  6. I think the colors and detail are super, hope she appreciated the hard work that went into it.
