My brother-in-law and fiancé were married just over a week ago, and I had the great pleasure of making their wedding cake. My husband helped decorate...he's meticulous enough to be a great help in that regard.
It was carrot cake topped with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate and edged with sugar pearls (which were a surprising crunch in your mouth when you're eating a moist cake). In case you ever make one, the 6-inch layers were a half recipe, and the 12-inch layers were each a whole recipe.
One alteration to the recipe, since moving to Utah: if you live above 4000 feet, add an extra egg white to the batter.
