Roses wedding cake

Since new years eve I have been working on a wedding cake that was picked up this morning for transportation to Windsor. Having it in the house was worrying enough but thank goodness the responsibility of moving it to it's final destination wasn't mine.

The roses are made from petal paste and each was worked over a minimum period of 4 days to allow the previous set of petals to dry before adding the next. The actual cakes are sponge (pound cakes), bottom layer - plain with a hint of orange, middle layer - chocolate chip, top layer - coffee.

Have I been stressed? Yes very. Worried? Always. Am I pleased with the end result? Yes I am.  Do I want to do another one? Hmm not too sure, will have to have a think on that one as I was asked yesterday if I could.....

  2. You are a woman of many the simplicity. If you've made one...why not another? :):)

  3. Wow, I can only imagine how happy they were with that, you did a fantastic job.
