After soooo many experiments i am finally finished. DONE.
And the wedding was amazing – kind of fusion: traditional hungarian gypsy wedding with modern elements, lots of food and homemade (father’s) PÁLINKA. Everybody loved it.
Here i need to say thank u to all my friends – who finally could come and help me to make this wedding cupcake, the list is not that big as i was expected… Thank u Csati, Kata and Évi. I could not succeed without u GUYS! :))))
Roughly i was working on it for 3 days: first i baked all the cupcakes (the paper did not work at first time so i had 36pieces which i couldnt use at all – family was pretty happy to try them) – and the last minute they let me know that we need more than we planned…. so i baked 110 little cupcakes (using lots of vanilla, lemon zest and special Pálinka). After i baked the rich sponge for the top-cake (two layers) and the 3 different stuffings: dark chocolate&olive oil ganache, vanilla&orange blossom cream and strawberry&marshmellow mousse. Urgently needed to jump in the middle of the sugar lace to have enought to decorate the cake and cover the little ones as well. Need to mention the time what i spent for the tiny flowers – using goma paste and sugar pearls in the middle.
One day before the big day i called my friends around as i mentioned above to help me put the whole thing together. Big fun. Was fuckin’ tired at the end of the day…. but worth it.
The whole cake was one of my biggest success. Everybody loved it! However – i wont make another cake for my sister (‘s next wedding) – just if its a “childbirth” celebration… :)
