This was made for a friend I have known for almost as long as I can remember! She and her husband got married in July and I was thrilled to be asked to make their cake. We had a get together and I showed them my ideas based on the theme they'd given me. After much discussion, and the occasional nod of the head from the groom, we came up with the idea above.
The cake was 4 tiers with the base being traditional fruit cake and the others were vanilla sponge with jam and buttercream. The cakes were covered in cream sugarpaste and stacked before decorating. Then began the mammoth task of adding all of those hearts, it took hours to do and there were well over 400 hearts on the cake! Once the rows of hearts had been added the whole cake was covered in a pearl lustre giving it a beautiful finish. The smaller scattered hearts were then coated in an edible glitter and added at the last minute.
There is something so amazing about making a wedding cake, everything has to be perfect so it's not an easy job but one full of rewards :-)
One more favourite cake to post and it's all about chocolate...
