Wedding Bells

I did this cake for a coworker who is mercilessly teased about her impending who knows when wedding date to our boss. She loves it though and is aware she will be recieving a wedding cake from me sometime this week (it's a mini-cake, you probably can't tell in the pic, but it's sitting on a dessert plate- not a regular plate). Originally the plan was to give it to my boss as a joke on his birthday, but well, the actual BIRTHDAY cake took precedence. I don't know how edible this cake is. I had to use "piping" icing, which is a bit thicker than regular buttercream (though it's basically the same recipe) and Wilton premade fondant...which is quite possibly the nastiest thing you can put on a cake. It was a fun little cake to make though. She loves hearts and that is why there is a heart on top. Sorry for the horrible pictures and crop job, but it's late and I should be in bed!

You are so sweet! Thank you! It's a lot of fun for me, but I still think they look so amateur. Practice makes perfect though, right?
