Are you feeling O-K...L-A-H-O-M-A?
This was the groom's cake for my new nephew-in-law. The reception was held in Stillwater - the day after the Cotton Bowl, so I basically ended up making one giant loop from home to Dallas to Stillwater to home again (jiggity jog) and, I even got to have a different chauffeur for each leg of the trip. Good times.
Are you ready to see the naked cake?
This was my niece's wedding cake! Chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate ganache. No icing or fondant to finish it off - that's what makes it "naked." I was concerned about the cake drying out (I prepped it on Thursday, so it could settle Friday, and travel with Madre and the Oklahoma cake on Saturday), but it stayed surprisingly moist. Have to admit, though, that I think I prefer a "finished" cake to a "naked" one...but then again I like a good dose of frosting.
Football, wedding reception, new cake style...all good ways to kick-off 2014!
Talk to you soon!
