Gold Damask

A very close friend of mine got married on 4th of July down at Battery Gardens and I had the pleasure of making a cake for her intimate event.  I stenciled a damask pattern then hand painted it gold.  Time consuming, but definitely worth it.  To it, I added a simple flower with gold lining.  The flavors were red velvet with cream cheese frosting (our most popular combo!)

We also made 5 cupcakes with a ring hidden in one of them.  Instead of a bouquet toss, the single ladies were told to grab one and who ever finds the ring in theirs will get married next!  (except the funny thing was, the girl who got it was in middle school :) hehe)
