A 12" chocolate Guinness cake with chocolate ganache & vanilla mousse made up the base, a 10" red velvet cake with a cream cheese butter cream filling followed. The bride wanted the 4 tier look but did not require all that cake so we decided to do the 8" as a dummy cake to achieve the look she wanted. The 6" top tier was their intention to freeze and enjoy on their 1st wedding anniversary. The flavour for this tier came down to 2 options we offered; our yummy carrot cake with cream cheese butter cream or a pumpkin apple spice with a Carmel butter cream. Decisions, decisions......they could not decide.......they asked us to make a decision on the flavour but to keep it a surprise for them so we can not reveal the flavour but I can assure you it will be worth the 1 year wait.
Here are some more pictures of the cake which is covered in ivory fondant with ivory royal icing scroll work. The flowers and leaves are all made from gum paste and dusted in various shades of red. I think we definitely captured the look Tiffany wanted.
This is the arrangement on the top tier.
A few close ups of the flowers.
Mel and her hubby were guests at this wedding and the bride & groom absolutely loved the cake. At the end of the day our main objective is to make our client happy and we were honoured to have been able to be a part of their special day.
CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW LIFE TOGETHER!
