She had the cake layers made, soaked and glazed with apricot jam and tons of "french buttercream" made when I got there. The arthritis in her hands didn't allow her to frost or especially use a decorating bag any more, so that was my job. I had already made a whole bunch of tiny royal icing flowers to add to the decorations.

I swear I thought I would have a nervous breakdown before we finally finished. The buttercream tasted fantastic, but it was not at all stable, so the butter wanted to melt out of it from the heat of my hands on the bag. It also didn't really appreciate a 45 minute trip in a car on a very hot June day in Texas.

I swore never again. I didn't have ANYTHING ELSE to do on the day before my wedding:)
