Yes, it is mostly done. Baked, filled, frosted. The only thing left to do is to apply the marzipan roses, which will wait until we get there. It is shaped like Texas, sort of. The roses are yellow, sort of. It will do, I hope.
Top picture, the frosted cake, complete with monogram of the soon-to-be-wedded couple.
Middle picture, the marzipan leaves and stems.
Bottom picture, the marzipan roses, which look more "blush" than yellow in this picture. That's okay.
So very glad it is done, and I sure hope it survives the trip more or less intact.
For those who haven't read it before, here's the story of my own wedding cake, which I made in a frenzy of sugar and insanity many years ago. I'm glad this project was a smaller one.
