Wedding Cake

I made a cake yesterday for my father-in-law and his bride. They had a casual little ceremony at home with a few family members, followed by tea and sweets.

The cake was chocolate with buttercream frosting. I’m not much of a cake decorator and we were short on time so the frosting was completed in under 10 minutes, but I think it turned out rather sweet. And it was totally delicious.

The cake recipe was my favorite, the Busy Day Cake from Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys by Lucinda Scala Quinn. The frosting was super simple: butter, whipped to glistening peaks in the stand mixer; a splash of vanilla; powdered sugar, added until the consistency seemed right/we were really running late and the cake just needed to be frosted!
