Wedding Cake

As most of you know, I made my friends Wedding Cake this past weekend! Martha Stewart and Wendy Kromer made this cake and it's featured in her book. Anyway, here's the cake!

My Agbay

I asked my dad to get me an Agbay for Christmas 2008 and he did! I've just been slow posting pictures apparently! Anyway, here it is!

For those of you that don't know, an Agbay torts cakes perfectly! While it's expensive, it's worth it! The one I have can fit multiple blades. Now you can buy the basic Agbay and add another blade to it. That wasn't available when we got mine...or we probably would have gotten that one. But it's great. I can add up to 12 blades to this one. It's called the "Agbay Deluxe".

The Agbay with both blades showing!

My cake before torting!

My cake during the torting process! (Excuse the PVC pipe that is covering the other blade. Safety comes first! That is the actual protective covering that it comes with).

The torted cake. I set the Agbay for one inch or less.

Wedding Cookies

I decided it was time to do two things! First, make some wedding cookies. Second, make some cookies with fondant on top. So these cookies are not the usual Royal Icing. They are sugar cookies decorated with fondant and then the top part is decorated with Royal Icing.

So here's the deal, I think the fondant looks really nice and clean on the cookie...but I didn't really like the taste of the cookie and the fondant together. But that's just me. Parker would eat them all day if I would let him. He kept begging for more.

Cornelli Lace Wedding Dress cookies

Wedding cake cookies (Sorry - these didn't turn out the greatest. The cookies kept ripping and then the fondant was stretching. So they just turned out ok for me).
