The Bride wanted shades of cream and ivory for her wedding cake. The three cakes were an old family fruitcake recipe and baked by the groom's sister. My friend and cake partner Verdie and I decorated the cakes.
|The cakes in a trial set up just before going in their boxes.|
|The two bottom cakes are 12" and 8" and together were tremendously heavy. The 6" top tier will sit on a 3" round of Styrofoam surrounded by gumpaste rosebuds.|
|Here's the rose for the top of the cake, it's 6" diameter. I kept the rolled petal shape by drying the petals with a small rolled up piece of tinfoil.|
