FIRST EVER WEDDING CAKE!

Carrot Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing
The bride, Christie, contacted me months ago to ask if I would make wedding cupcakes for her special day. She found me via Cake Wrecks! I happily agreed. I don't know why Christie and her now husband were willing to put so much trust in a seventeen year old girl, but I'm so glad they did!
The "cake" consisted of 192 cupcakes and an 8-inch anniversary tier. Each cupcake was made fresh and from scratch and topped with a candy leaf. Each leaf corresponded to a different flavor cake. I practiced out recipes for weeks to prepare--everyone in my school has now gotten overloaded with sugar treats for my experiments.
After 17 hours of non-stop baking and decorating, 30 eggs, 168 ounces of candy, 10 pounds of flour, 8 cups of butter, and 16 dozen cupcake liners, I can now say I've successfully completed what I hope won't be my last wedding cake. Send me your feedback :)
