Mini wedding cake

I was approached by the desk manager for Laura's summer camp program to make a small version of a wedding cake as a surprise for their boss, who is to be married this upcoming weekend (congratulations!!).

Elegance and flavor were the theme of the day.  The base cake is a 2-layer yellow cake with fresh ground almonds in the batter, filled with buttercream.  The top layer is white cake with (oh-so-yummy!) almond filling!  The icing was also flavored with pure almond extract- the smells were heavenly!

This was my first experience with a "wedding" cake, as well as scroll piping decoration.  I was very pleased with how everything turned out :)
