My most favourite wedding cake

31 08 2009

My favourite of all the cakes I have made is the one I made for my sister a couple of years ago. Since the cake was for my sister, I really wanted it to be a stunner. Her colour theme was a deep red, and she had native flowers for her bouquet.

I started with a fairly basic design….


Then made hundreds (nope, that’s not an exaggeration) of sugar paste flowers…

I went to the reception venue the day before the wedding to put it all together.



I’m pretty sure my sister and her new husband really loved it. At least that’s what they told me! I’m pretty proud of it too, although I’m not in a hurry to make so many sugar flowers again for a cake.
