My Baby Got Married!

My youngest son got married almost three weeks ago. This is a picture of him and my new DDIL immediately following the ceremony.

This picture was taken in the garden outside the venue. It's so nice to have another "Darling" girl in the family!

This is the wedding cake that I made. The bottom layer is chocolate marble with a chocolate buttercream and chocolate chip filling. The top layer is strawberry cake with strawberry filling. Both layers were frosted with buttercream icing. I planned to make the ribbons and leaves out of chocolate, but I was unable to find cocoa butter. So I used sequined chocolate brown ribbon for the wide stripes, and satin brown ribbon for the narrow stripes. The ends were fastened together with a dab of Fabri-Tac. I purchased a small cluster of silk flowers, cut the leaves off, and painted the leaves with brown acrylic paint. The flowers on the cake were originally white. I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist and then inserted silver stems with crystals attached, into the cake. All stems were covered with floral tape before being inserted. Flowers, stems, leaves, and ribbon were purchased at Hobby Lobby. I purchased a bag of white rose petals from the Dollar Tree and sprinkled them on the table around the cake.
