A Wedding

My Creation

Yes, I did it I have made my fist ever official Wedding Cake and delivered it to the venue, sadly I did not get more photo's but I a hoping to get some from the actual bride and groom on their return from honeymoon. The cake had originally been ordered as a three tier but they wanted and extra one at the last minute. The big day was on the 1st September, so we came back from out two week break early so I could finish decorating it and also make the sponges for the other three tiers. I took the cake in four boxes and assembled it there, my hands were shaking when I put the finishing touches to it. But I was pleased with it and I hope they were too! The four tiers consisted of: Top - Chocolate sponge 6" Second - Lemon Sponge 8" Third - Vamilla Sponge 10" Fourth - Fruit Cake 12" All decorated (obviously) in the required colours and dowelled on the lower layers to give it strength when stacked. I hope this is finally the start of my little "empire". I am now thinking of the Christmas Cakes I will be making, I already have orders for these, so am getting planning now. In the meantime for next month I have a Silver Wedding Anniversary Cake and an Golden Wedding Anniversary Cake to make. These are both fruit cakes so these can be made now and stored away until I am ready to decorate them.
