Trent Bakes A Wedding Cake

Trent is pretty sure he could do anything he set his mind to. Like making our wedding cake. However, like the shed, we agreed on a trial run before hand. Here's the photo story!

Trent made two layers of yellow cake with lemon curd in between. He made marshmallow fondant and chilled everything in the fridge until Sunday afternoon when he had some spare time. It actually turned out very well!

Sadie was intrigued. And thought there might be snacks involved.

Is there anything better than lemon curd? I don't think so.

Marshmallow fondant is like really yummy play-dough. And it looks pretty fancy!

Sadie was less intrigued when she realized there were no snacks involved.

I came in just for the fun decorating part. Adding food coloring to fondant makes super colorful, flavorful, play-dough.

Awww, practicing cutting the cake! I think it turned out really well for a first try. We had friends over for dinner on Sunday night and they all got to taste and vote, and everyone was impressed! Not sure if we will go this route, but I will trust completely if he does decide. And he wants to do more trials... which is fantastic for me!

Sadie was bored with our shenanigans.
