Re: I did make this cakeHey Bob,
I never did get into fondant, marzipan or sugar art? I know my limits .. lol. Does your wife charge for the cakes? It's great that she took the Wilton course I've heard good things about it. I was taught by the baker who use to own the place and had him stay on and teach me. It's a form of art as is cooking and smoking meats. I don't know what they get where you are for wedding cakes but up here is close to 3.50 per slice, so a cake that feeds 100 ppl cost 350.00 not including delivery and set-up not bad if your wife can do a few cakes per month. That cake was a gift to a couple that we know who were kinda low on cash so I told them I'd bake it for them. I was in Canada when they got married and when I came back I found out they dropped the top of the cake. They didn't take it apart and tried to carry it down 2 flights of stairs .. <shaking head> Oh well, the wife is on the way home and I have to plan for the Farthers day smoked feast :) Any plans for the a weekend smoke?
