I finally got around to making the flowers that will go on our cakes! I was originally going to make them out of gum paste, but worried that if it was warm on our wedding day, they would get all soft and wilty. Inspired by the Weddingbee PRO interview with the talented Diane of DK Designs, I decided I would give clay a try. During our crafting session, BM Dana and I tried first to make a dahlia, but with all the little petals, it just wasn’t working for us (I should’ve taken a picture, it was bad!). I was just about to give up and use real flowers (or possibly consult a professional) when I was messing around and came up with one of these. I liked it enough to make a couple more! One small flower will be on each of the smaller cakes, and the biggest flower will go on the center cake.
We’ve also chosen our cake-cutting song! It’s the cute and quirky “All I Want Is You” from the Juno soundtrack.
Now all that’s left in the cake department is figuring out what we’ll cut it with! Oh yeah, and picking our flavors.
Have you chosen your cake-cutting song yet? Which song did you pick?
