We can finally post our first ever groom's cake! This was by far the most important cake we've done to date and was viewed by some 100+ people! We even did a practice cake a few months ago to make sure that we knew exactly how we wanted things to go and we are very glad that we did so.
Lisa and Taylor go to church with me and were married on Oct. 2nd at Larkin's in downtown Greenville. So yes, not only was it our first groom's cake, but it was at Larkin's and if you are from around these parts you know it's a nice place!! Taylor is an avid fish and Lisa wanted to surprise him with a large-mouthed bass cake.
Heather and I worked really well together on this cake, from combining ideas about how to make the wood look real to the colors on the fish. We of course have to give credit to William who did all of the writing on this cake. He hasn't been recruited in a good while, but this was so small and both of us were to the point of having carpal tunnel that we handed it over to him. :) He did very well!!
Below is the orginal practice cake... we def. made some improvements on the second one!
We also did desserts for the rehearsal dinner the previous night. We made 2 of "Nana Pat's Beach Cake" which is a favorite of Taylor's family and is pictured below. We also made "chocolate banana pudding" which is a favorite of Lisa's family. It was neat to make family recipes for them, but I didn't get a picture of the pudding.
