Wedding Friday: Homemade Wedding Cakes from Raquel

Wedding Friday: Homemade Wedding Cakes from Raquel

Remember how I told you that I am going the crazy route and making my own wedding cakes (and ice cream)? Turns out I'm not alone in this craziness; reader Raquel wrote in with photos and a sweet note about her own homemade wedding cakes.

Read on to see more of what she did and her notes on the process.

Here's Raquel:

Here are a couple of pictures of the cakes I made for our wedding. We used an old, a blue and a new cake stand for each of the three cakes and decorated them simply with one flower each. I made 2 coconut and one massive chocolate - all had white chocolate buttercream.

It was a lot of fun baking with my sister and since I have lots of cake experience it wasn't too stressful. I even made a strawberry chiffon cake for 40 at our pre-wedding BBQ a night or 2 before (can't remember now....)

I highly recommend doing it if you have the inclination, just make it simple and beautiful and don't put too much stress on yourself.

Love the nod to the old tradition of something old, something new and something blue. Those big flowers are pretty fab as well. What beautiful cakes, Raquel! Thank you so much for sending them in.
