Cake Update (boring title, I know)

While out on my walk this morning I was reminded by a friend that I hadn't posted pictures of my additions to my recent Wedding Cake. Since they are having two receptions we needed a cake that would last for both, so the big cake is actually a "dummy cake" which means it has foam forms under the fondant rather than real cake. Funny how I have told a few people that after they saw the cake and suddenly they weren't nearly as impressed with the cake, as if it makes it so much easier to do on a "fake" cake. I also thought it was humorous that I was making a "faux" cake, since that is my forte in life- faux finishing. Ha ha ha, do you see the irony? You don't? ohhhh, welll...ummmm....anyway.

Mandy still wanted to cut a cake at her receptions and although she insisted that she could just go buy something at Walmart to cut I insisted that that wasn't an option. After dreaming up some amazing ideas that failed in execution, here is what I came up with:

(Please take note of the excellent photoshop skills as to cut out the huge green soap container and large pile of dishes that SOMEONE didn't bother to take care of a 4 a.m. when she finally finished the cakes)

So there you have it!
The wedding was amazing, and my friends are off to Mexico this week!
I was too busy setting up and such to get a lot of pictures of the reception, but here are a few I was able to squeeze in...

I know the photographer got lots of pictures before it got dark, so when I am able I'll post some of those, or a link, or something!

Have a great day!
