On the Road Wedding Cake

BeNi Cakes is delighted to share a couple pictures of our "on the road" wedding cake and groom's cake that we made and decorated in Iowa two weeks ago!  A dear friend of ours who has been like our little sister grew up, realized she was in love with her best friend, and their love of books was the theme of their amazing wedding reception.  We were honored to be asked to make their cake and surprise the groom with a cake composed of three of his favorite books.

The wedding cake was three different flavors, two each of cherry chip, lemon and white with raspberry filling.  A non-melting buttercream icing recipe saved the day!  I think I'm in love with dream whip (a little secret ingredient).

The groom's cake was chocolate cake with marshmallow fondant. 

There are lots of people to thank for helping us make this away from our homes and we appreciate everyone who helped out!  Congratulations Erin and Robby!!!
