Royal Wedding Cake
Well hello! Did you all see two of my greatest loves- the British Monarchy and Old Money People doing Old Money Things combine this morning? I did. And while I was at it, I built a 4-tier wedding cake. First I filled it with homemade lemon curd.
Then I topped it with homemade raspberry jam, laced with some Grand Mariner.
Wondering what 19 sticks of butter looks like as swiss meringue buttercream? That's 28 egg whites, 7 cups of sugar, and 19 sticks of butter. And I used almost all of it.
This is currently in my fridge: I was rushed and kind of distracted, I'll do better next time, promise.
PS- Check back tomorrow, I'll have pictures up of the cake decorated and the inside. If it doesn't collapse.
