The finished cake .....
...... from yesterday's sneaky peek !
We have just got home from taking this cake 60 odd miles up to central London for the wedding today ...... and we would have had to choose a day with 31* temperatures !
Luckily the cake arrived intact and the bride's parents loved it (the bride was busy getting ready). I was especially pleased to see that I had matched the colours of my sugar flowers pretty well to the real flowers from the florist and that the pale green swags perfectly matched the walls of the room ! That had been the idea, but I was only told the colours rather than seeing samples.
Bottom tier was chocolate, middle tier vanilla and top tier fruit cake, all covered in marzipan and fondant.
I think the guests will be lucky to get any cake to eat though as I put so many dowels down it so that it didn't collapse or crack on the journey !! It didn't ..... phew !!
The cake is sitting on my Lazy Susan in the photo as it was too heavy for me to lift off !! LOL It was displayed on a proper silver stand in London though.
I'll post pictures of the gorgeous venue tomorrow.
