This Saturday my sister-in-law and I held a bridal shower for our new sister-in-law to be. The shower was done in our home and many last minute preparations had to be made. The Cake we made was a Red Velvet Cake with a Cream Cheese frosting by Paula Dean. We knew we wanted to do a "Corset cake" so we had a little fun and made the breasts 3 sizes to big and the waist unreasonably small. When she was cut open there was a layer of pink fabric (fondant), skin (frosting) and flesh (cake). We laughed together over the intentional exaggerations. Playfully we assembled our creation and let creativity flow as the minutes turned to hours quickly.
Before the arrival of the guests we created a centerpiece which was also the gift. I had purchased the jewelry branch in Costco that week and was pretty excited by it. I did think it had potential but the idea came just days before the party. We wrapped the secrets separately and hung them on the tree and a collection of the "Dream Angel" samples were strung along side a scented bra.
The party went well. There was plenty of food eat, new people to meet and little presents to create lots of heat. There was music playing. Candles blowing. Wine sipping. And lots of wonderful ladies. Everything was beautiful, almost magical and I thought that it was the perfect introduction for her wedding.
All in all the cake was the biggest hit, and it didn't even matter so much what was on the inside. Of course I am not a professional and the lace was not edible but it worked and fulfilled my vision for the party. If by any means you are a cake artist I would love any input on how to create a lace look without using it, on the other hand if you are a beginner like me and would like to know how to create one yourself don't hesitate to ask.
