I do love a wedding

We're off today to my good friend Carissa's wedding.  I stepped in late in the game to make the groom's cake.  It's a 2 layer 9" round of Dorie's Perfect Party Cake with the lemon amped up a bit via a limoncello simple syrup and lightly flavored mousseline buttercream from The Cake Bible.  The decorations are piped chocolate.  I'd love to say I piped them on the cake, but I did tons on parchment paper, then picked the best ones for the cake.  Last night I was seeing every imperfection, but today, I really like it.  I do wish the icing was smoother, but I think it's fine, and I know they will appreciate and love it.
