Personalized Wedding Cake Slice by Bon-AppetEats Personalized Wedding Cake Slice by Bon-AppetEats
My wedding was a little over a week ago, and I'm starting to work on my thank you cards.

Along with the cards, I'm sending one of these wedding cake slices.

We didn't have a cake at our wedding,which I know was strange to most of the people that attended. I thought it'd be nice to give everyone something that would last longer than a simple thank you note...and work a cake in there somewhere.

The cake is my design. I love pale blue and brown together; it's such a nice, crisp combination of colors. There are micro beads in purple and light blue to accent the cake. The initials on the top are, of course, of our first names.

The writing on the top is...not 100% yet. I need to go over it once more with some black paint.

I may have gotten in over my head; I only finished this slice and only have 2 others iced and not decorated and that took me nearly an entire day (with several interruptions, but still).

This has gotten me thinking..maybe I should offer to do a memorial slice of cake for other weddings? Copy the pattern and colors and whatnot so the couple can have a piece always preserved.

I love this, and I love the idea of making one for other weddings as a memorial piece type thing. It's so cute! And I love the chocolate swirly icing stuff on the back of the slice. :)

Thank you!

That part took the longest since the clay was rolled out so thin. I can't tell you how many times I had to pull it all off and start again. >.<

You're most welcome!
Lols yeah I can imagine. I havent done many polyclay cakes and whatnot but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a stickler for teeny tiny details. And they're so frustrating if you accidentally smush them, or have to keep redoing them, particularly with sculpey because it's really warm out at the moment, thusly warm inside, and the sculpey gets quite sticky when it's warm. So frustrating!

After reading the description, I only just noticed that it is made out of clay, and is not a real cake LOL

THE CAKE IS A LIE!

Thank you very much! I absolutely love blue and brown together, and the design I threw together after looking through some images online for ideas. It would have been the cake I wanted if we had one!

Well I bet it would've been lovely as a real weddingcake.
Maybe you can make it later on a anniversery or so ;)
