Steampunk-style divorce cake

My most unusual commission to date! A cake for a "divorce party", with the brief that it had to be in the "Steampunk" culture theme, with a Steampunk/Goth/Burlesque-type bride! Think I pulled it off (hopefully)...I love making sugar flowers but I really relish this sort of offbeat order too.

 

It's a very detailed cake, I'll be posting a full album of photos of various details from the cake later this weekend on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.388371364538349.90092.1...

 

Everything's edible, apart from the rose (Artista Soft) and the wire "springs" in the pocket watch. The cake and belt are in Belgian chocolate, the rest is in sugar in one form or another. Hope you like it! Everything's handmodelled, or from moulds that I have made myself. The cake underneath was a multilayered (6 layer) rich chocolate cake with alternate layers of chocolate and caramel buttercream.

 

An absolute joy to make from start to finish!
