- Wedding: July 2012
We had an Australian barbecue themed wedding shower. My FI was raised in Australia and I wanted to add a taste of home to our wedding celebration.
I made my own shower cake (well I decorated it)! I decided to make it look like the sydney opera house after being inspired by Sprinklebakes Operhouse cake (http://www.sprinklebakes.com/2010/05/sydney-opera-house-opera-cake.html)
I didn’t have enough time to bake my own cakes so I bought two undecorated/plain sheet cakes from the local baker. For the Sydney opera house, I made the sculptures the day before out of fondant and let it sit overnight so it was hard, then placed them strategically on my cake. (FYI.. the boxes surrounding the cake are our wedding invitations, we gave most of them out at the shower!)
and this was our wedding shower invitation, i made these myself too. Check out my DIY post on these invites for more pictures and details. http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/my-diy-wedding-shower-invite-passport
