Mini Cake for 60 Years of Wedded Bliss

Yes, 60 years!  That’s quite an accomplishment.  Bill and Ruth are a sweet couple that I go to church with.  To celebrate their anniversary I made a mini wedding cake for them.  I wanted it to look like an old-fashioned wedding cake.  Probably not authentic to their wedding time but as old-fashioned as I can remember. 

What I discovered is that a mini wedding cake is harder to work with than a large wedding cake.  Everything is on a smaller scale so my tools don’t fit.  I started by baking a 6″ layer of almond cake and then cut it down to 5″.  The 2nd and 3rd tiers are cut from a larger layer.  I covered each tier separately with buttercream and then stacked them.  Once I added the buttercream ruffles and swags I was nearly finished.  All in all, I think it turned out pretty well.  Ruth  told me she wouldn’t cut it until the neighbors saw it. 

Keepin’ it sweet!
