After battling the unforgiving humidty for the entire process of this four tiered wedding cake and driving it two hours in the rain...I was quite pleased with the end result! With over 500 tiny flowers and a hand cut monogram to match in with the rest of the beautiful reception details it looked quite at home in the room which was overlooking the Brisbane River! and blue skies for the big day:)
This cake was for my niece Sam whom I might add looked absolutely beautiful along with the bridesmaids who wore long deep purple dresses. The cake is all chocolate mud cake and is covered in ivory fondant, I had some edible sugar diamonds for the dark purple flowers but with the humidity they were just too soft to hold on so I had to leave them off!
The pearl borders are hand painted with super pearl lustre dust and the pearls inside the tiny flowers I piped with royal icing.
The smallest flowers started on the top tier and were all hand glittered.
You can just make out the edible glitter on the top of this photo, they were really sparkling in the sun and under the lights...I love that glitter (if your into cake decorating and want some it's called hologram)
Here is the back view and a little glimpse of the decorations! If you would like to see a few more photos head on over to my facebook page. My family & I had a fantastic time at this wedding & I was very happy to be a part of it with the making of the cake...
Congratulations Sam & Mark!!
