Or maybe I just made a couple of tickets on the computer and printed them with edible ink on edible paper. Maybe I just made and signed the basketball and jersey myself, too.
Anyway, here's the groom's hat and beverage of choice done in sugar. The bottle is poured sugar (my first attempt at sugar work) and the label is an edible image.
And what sporting event is complete without buttery popcorn? Hubs saw some of this drying on the counter one morning, and wasn't sure if it was real or not. He said he was confused because he didn't smell popcorn, but it looked so real he had to ask. FYI, it doesn't taste like popcorn. Just to the left of the popcorn is a picture of the groom's dog on a keychain, with a key to his new Ford truck. All edible, of course.
This cake was GIGANTIC. It was two (three layers each) fourteen inch squares, stacked one on top of the other. Which means there are six fourteen inch layers behind that fondant. They're rich chocolate cake, filled and iced with chocolate ganache. I swear I've gained weight from just breathing the wicked chocolate overload aroma in my house this week.
The mother-of-the-bride came to look at the cake before I left.
Which made me cry.
But oh, so happy!
