We are 6 months out from getting married this year and I have made the decision to bake our wedding cake.
I am not sure at this point if I have made really stupid decision and it is going to cause me undue stress in the run up to what is meant to be a fun and enjoyable day… or… (and I hope it is the latter) it is going to be fine and give me an opportunity to push myself to try a few new things and work on my presentation.
Either way, it’s too late now. I’ve committed.
My plan in order to avoid a catastrophe is… practice, practice, practice.
As such, on top of my irregular baking spurts that I blog about, I am baking Rob a cake each month in the run up to the wedding to try out a bake that might make it to the big day.
This one is a mango and passionfruit layer cake.
Four layers of vanilla sponge, lined with passionfruit puree, and sandwiched together with mango and passionfruit buttercream.
The first cake option on the board.
