My very first formal cake! I had so much fun designing this cake and making it. Debra wanted the cake to be gold and cream, with black accents. I made two sketches for her, and this is the one she chose. I used a 6" round Golden Cake for the top, and a 9" round Devilishly Chocolate Cake for the bottom half (Thank you to Tish Boyle's The Cake Book), under the fondant icing the cake is covered in a cream cheese frosting.
I was so honored to make this cake. What a special day- 50 years of marriage!
Hope you are all enjoying your Thanksgiving weekend!
