Matt & AJ's Wedding Cake

Three tiers of chocolate fudge cake with chocolate Swiss meringue filling.   Frosted and piped with buttercream.  Fresh stargazer lilies and satin ribbon decor. Chocolate fudge cupcakes topped with Swiss meringue buttercream and edible pearls.
 I had stargazer lilies in my wedding bouquet - I forgot how they pretty they are.  The whole cake was designed around the awesome pinks that just pour out of those lilies.
The tiny dot piping (#1 tip! So small!) was pretty easy; start with the top row, and eyeball about 1-1/2 inch spacing apart. Then pipe the bottom and middle rows, both lined up with the top row, then pipe the second and fourth rows where the gaps are.   Not terrifying at all.  OK, maybe a little bit.

 Congratulations Matt & AJ!!
