Mocha Basket Weave

I made this cake the other day:

It was a chocolate cake with mocha icing. I was disappointed though because the mocha icing was delicious by itself, but after it was on the cake, it just tasted like chocolate icing. Oh well though, it was still good. :)

I used a different tip for this basket weave than my last basket weave. Which one do you like better?

My First Wedding Cake

I made my first wedding cake for a couple of friends who got married about a week ago. I was so nervous about transporting it and putting it all together, but thankfully nothing went wrong. The hardest part was carrying it, it was so heavy! The bottom tier was 16 inches, middle was 12 inches, and the top was 8 inches. I am so happy with how it turned out!

The bottom and middle tier were white velvet cake, and the top was spice cake. The filling between the layers was buttercream, as well as on the outside of the cake.

My best wishes to the bride and groom, may your lives together be filled with great joy.
