This post should have happened back in July; but I wanted to save it for a landmark because it was a special cake for two special people.
On July 4th, 2013, my cousin married the man of her dreams, so of course I was honored to be able to make their wedding cake for them! They asked for a New York Yankees cake! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Yyyyyankees caaaake!! What better way to celebrate my 200th post than with this 4th of July Yankees wedding cake?!!?
Vanilla and chocolate tiers, covered in fondant and hand painted gum paste Yankees symbols. The top hat was done in Rice Krispies treat and covered in fondant. The little white dog with his own top hat represents the bride’s dog Gizmo, as he wasn’t able to be at the wedding, I had to make sure he was included in some way!
I also made some cream puffs at the request of the groom; but I never got a picture of them. The ‘house’ in the background of this photo was the card box. My mom made the card box as a miniature replica of the new home the bride and groom purchased. Attention to detail runs in the family!
Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Berberick! May your love for each other grow with each passing day!
