One fine day....

Three Saturdays ago, I made my first wedding cake.

It was for my brother-in-law who married his now ex-girlfriend Gracey at the beautiful farm of La Finca Country Club in Lipa, Batangas.=)

Corwyn and Gracey Jose
 And just like every little girl's fantasy, Gracey got the wedding of her dreams :
 1. Small, intimate Christian wedding attended by close family and friends.

2. The perfect venue - a wedding by the pool.
Uh huh, they wed right smack the middle of the pool.=)
3. A gown that defines elegance and beauty.
4. Symbolical wedding rings 

5. Food, food, food.
Just a few of the delectable food served at the reception
6. Fireworks
So nice!=)

7.  Cake lovingly decorated by me.=)

 Here's a few more pictures of the wedding cake........=)

I hope you noticed the figure also has an eyeglass similar to the groom's.=)
It was hard having to make the cake and being part of the entourage at the same time.  The venue was an hour away from our house.  I didn't have time to fix myself and just went down at the nearest mall from La Finca and had my hair and make-up done at a salon where I didn't have to wait for my turn.
 ...................and made it just in time to stack the cake, change and be at the wedding briefing.

This was the look I was going for really.................a 'do that looked like I did my own hair.
Even had time for a picture with the cake and in-law too!=)
 It was the perfect day to get married.  There might have been things that didn't go as planned, nobody noticed and everyone had a blast!

Welcome to the family Gracey.
This is a nice wacky picture of Gracey's family.
This is my favorite picture of all - the bride and her Mom.
An hour after the wedding, here we are, still celebrating. 
Oh, there's one last thing I forgot that Gracey got in her dream wedding..................

8. Her Prince Charming, her Mahal, her bestfriend
The dashing groom excited to be on his way to meet his bride at the altar......awww
Congratulations and best wishes again Corwyn and Gracey.  May God bless your marriage and fill your hearts with peace and joy.  May He grant you strength to endure whatever challenges you will face as a couple.  May He be seen in your life and may the family you are about to start do wonders for His Kingdom.=)

Just Married!

For the cake, I used the recipe below :

3 cup sugar
3 cup cake flour

1 1/4 cup butter, room temperature

Cream butter and sugar.  Add oil and mix thoroughly.  Add eggs one at a time and mix well.
 Add vanilla extract.
Alternately add the flour and buttermilk starting and ending with the flour.
Bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.
