5 tier wedding cake

This is a cake that I made for one of my daughter's best friends. I made all of the cakes, flowers, and cake stand, here at home, carefully packed them, and drove SEVEN hours to Nashville, Tennessee, then I covered them in fondant, assembled, and decorated them at the venue!

 

I made the gumpaste flowers to match photos of the brides bouquet... they were made of 'balsa wood'... so I tried especially hard to maintain the texture of the flowers... because that's what they were all about.... very organic texture.... this photo doesn't show the texture details in the flowers.

 

I'm sure many of you will recognize the cake stand from being from my dear friend, Jo Ranson! It seems to be my 'go to' cake stand!

 

I recently had a problem with one of my cake photos being stolen by a high profile cake shop in Miami... not to mention any names....'DDCAKES.COM' {theives}.....oops... did I say that?? *~*

I had to threaten legal action to make them remove my photo from their webpage...it wasn't just my photo they had stolen, they had many other photos that weren't there cakes....so, I'm going to watermark all of my cake photos from now on!
