TV Remote Control Groom's Cake

This weekend, the very talented lady behind Photography by Lela got married! Shortly after I began working with Debbie, she asked me to do her wedding cake. Of course, I referred her to Debbie so she requested that I be her decorator!

Her fiance just LOVES his television (sounds familiar...) so her groom's cake was a giant TV remote control. She sent us a photo of his remote so we could create a sugar replica!

This baby was at least 18 inches long!

The cake was hand-carved and covered in black fondant. I took great care in cutting out all the fondant buttons. This really appealed to my Type A personality...straight lines, perfectly round circles....*sigh*...right up my alley.

The toughest part was writing those tiny words. I used a tip 1 with royal icing, and I felt like the words should have been smaller still!

Not only was this cake awesome & got great laughs by my new husband, but the kids just LOVED it...my nephew Dylan couldn't keep his hands off it. He kept pressing the buttons. Thank you so much Melanie, the cake was amazing!!
