As the mother of TWO beautiful baby girls, I'm discovering how to make "Ashley's kitchen" into "Mama's kitchen." You know, like the kind in old movies and nostalgic country songs. Mama's kitchen - where everyone gathers to enjoy good food, weekend brunches, family dinners, and make lasting memories. That is my destination, and this is my journey.
I just had to share a picture of the groom's cake I made for my brother, Travis's wedding last weekend. The top two layers are fondant on cake boards, and the bottom layer is a white almond confetti cake with buttercream icing and filling (because my brother's awesome like that). After it's fair share of issues, the cake actually turned out really cute.
"you are my star; together we are invincible"
I couldn't think of a better way to tie in the Mario theme
to the marriage of my brother and his bride
We've been playing Super Mario since we were kids, so this cake is not only fun, but it also reflects my brother and a little piece of our childhood. Because what's a wedding without tradition?
Of course, you want to see this beautiful bride and handsome groom, too!
And what wedding would be complete without an adorable flower girl ;)
I just couldn't resist a picture with my Travi - didn't he look great?!
