The One with Baby Brother's Wedding

Wow, my baby brother is married. I will ignore the fact that this now makes me the last single person in my family. His wedding was beautiful, fun, and overall amazing. Brother looked so handsome in his tux and clean shaven face. And my new sister looked stunning in her lace dress and veil. Together, they made the perfect couple. I was so honored to play the role of the crazy sister/bridesmaid. I also was so excited that my brother asked me to make their wedding cake.

This cake had to be perfect. After months of determining what the cake and cupcakes would look like, my wonderful brother threw me a curveball 5 days before the wedding and told me he wanted it to look different. Luckily for him, I'm pretty go with the flow (sometimes, anyway). So I spent the next few days making cakes and frosting. And more frosting. Way too much frosting. (Yeah, I still have 7 pounds of frosting left). The day before the wedding, my amazing and talented grandma joined me to assist in baking the cupcakes and decorate the cake. If she was my assistant, then you know I'm good. ;)

After a torturous hour long drive to the reception, the 3 tiered cake and 216 cupcakes arrived safe and sound. And I could finally relax. The wedding and reception went off without a hitch, and I officially have a sister! Congratulations baby bro and sis!
