I had an absolute blast making this cake for a friend of a friend. She came to me with some design elements in mind, and this is what we came up with for the final product.
I'm fairly confidant using fondant to sculpt decorational elements, but there's always a bit of terror lurking in the back of my mind when it comes to covering cakes in fondant. It's tricky. Everything matters. Is it too humid? You're screwed. Is it too dry? You're screwed. Is your cake not quite cool enough? Screwed!
You know how in that last post I was talking about my compulsive need to do everything myself? Yes well. I made my own wedding cake.
This was my first time stacking a three-tier cake (or any multi-tiered cake), and also my first time making gumpaste flowers. Did I practise beforehand? No. Did I decide to go full-tilt the week before my wedding and just do it? Yes. Was it a good idea? Well... that depends.
