Mr & Mrs Wingett {Highfields Wedding Cake}

Over the weekend I created and delivered this black and ivory wedding cake to Highfields {Toowoomba} for my best friends brother Darren and his beautiful bride Tammy.  Once again we had rain and plenty of it! I was very worried my fondant roses would flop, but everything held together nicely and arrived in one piece.

The top tier of this cake was chocolate mud, second tier white chocolate mud and bottom tier was fruit cake.  All the roses were wrapped in soft ivory tulle, wide satin ribbon was used for trim on the top tier and the bow.

The stripes on the bottom tier are black fondant, which took quite some time to put together...these were very carefully measured out before I placed them on, no room for error black fondant is very unforgiving if you mark the lighter fondant with it there is no getting it off! 

This photo is my favourite photo even though it's not of the entire cake, for a brief moment as I was taking my 30+ photos {crazy I know! I spend so much time on these cakes all I have left is the photos so that's my excuse} the rain stopped and the sun came shining through the window which made for some really nice images.

Here is the top view the flowers went all the way around...

and a close up of the cake topper.

The board was covered in black fondant and trimmed with satin ribbon.
Congratulations Darren and Tammy, I hope you enjoyed your day!
