60th Wedding Anniversary
Even though I love the way this cake turned out in the end, I swear to you it almost didn't make it out my front door. Everything was fine and dandy until I started decorating....my buttercream yellowed on me for the first time ever! Then, when I went to airbrush the cake back to white my airbrush nozzle decided it wanted to break. So there I was at 11 p.m. at night crying my eyes out because I thought I was going to deliver an ugly cake to one of my dearest friends because it was due at 2 p.m. the next day. Well long story short, I went in search of a replacement airbrush the next morning only to buy an airbrush and find out my compressor wasn't powerful enough. So after crying again, I broke out the Luster Dust and my biggest brush and just started dusting. When I stopped, I was actually surprised, the Luster Dust combined with the yellow (okay not Spongebob yellow but cream colored) buttercream the cake turned this beautiful antique color. I guess things happen for a reason.
