Grey Ombre Wedding Cake - It's a miracle! I finished a wedding cake with hours to spare! No mater how much I prepare, or start early, I always seem to finish a cake less than an hour before go time. Good thing this one wasn't too tall though, the wind would have blown it over! :-) Also, it was the first time I have ever done a cake near a pool where there wasn't a close call. This cake was blessed.

I was trying to be considerate of the sleeping people in my house and had the light on in the dining room, but not the kitchen. I dyed the WHOLE BATCH purple. I put it on the bottom cake not realizing it was purple, not gray and thought, wow, that looks bright for grey, turned on the light and freaked out! I didn't have any extra powdered sugar to make more. and I didn't have time to remake the layer entirely, so I found out you can mix in yellow to make gray. If that wasn't enough, during delivery, someone pulled out in front of me and I had to slam on my brakes. The top layer was not stacked yet and because it is taller than a normal top layer, it's center of gravity was precarious anyway and it tipped over, luckily just hitting the side of the van so I was able to repair it on site. Maybe that is one of the reasons I love it. I was just so happy it turned out so well after all that. LOL
