The top tier was a coconut cake with a coconut cream filling. The bottom tier was a lemon cake with a peach mango glaze and a lemon curd filling. Yum!
And then the ruffles were added one-little-fondant-ruffle at a time. It wasn’t hard, it just took longer than I expected. When I finished late at night, I had been looking at it so long that I really thought it was ugly. But as a little sleep always changes things, in the morning it was gorgeous again:)!
Small Miracles—We had a little tender mercy miracle for the reception. As we were setting up outside, the wind started to really blow. The tablecloths and boxes were blowing away. We had to place chairs over the tables and just go inside and hope it would calm down. We waited a few hours.
About an hour before the reception it calmed down and we went out to hurry and decorate. Then it started to rain. Ugh! In Arizona you don’t pray for rain to stop. It is a blessing for every little drop. But I must admit that we all said a little prayer of gratitude for the rain, but please temper the weather just around the reception.
We went out and continued with faith to set up in the rain. 15 minutes before the reception started, the rain quit and a rainbow appeared in the sky!
We scrambled to finish decorating and bring out the food, decorations, and cake while the guests were arriving. They all understood though. The weather was cool and perfect the rest of the night. It was a small miracle! Our prayers were heard and answered:)
