The first stepwas baking and icing the cakes. The bottom and top tiers were Guinness chocolate cake, and the middle tier was vanilla. All were iced with vanilla buttercream.
They had a couple of styles in mind, but they decided on a 3-tiered peach colored cake with white icing decorations. The cake was covered with peach fondant and the dots were made with royal icing.

But that's not all! Adrienne wanted to surprise Kyle with a personalized groom's cake. He's a home-brewer (he actually brewed the beer that was served at the wedding), so of course that was the perfect idea for the cake: Faglardo's Lager. I told her I would make a beer mug for him, and her only requirement was that it had to be Red Velvet cake. I was a little hesitant about cream cheese icing and fondant, but after a little searching I found a great Cream Cheese Buttercream recipe that was fantastic.
So after the wedding was over and dinner was served, it was time to demolish the cakes.
