Mick and Wendy married in a stunning setting next to a natural waterfall, 1 of 7 in Waterfall Gully, South Australia. This cake was about bringing together the interests and vision the bride and groom have. The result is a 4 tier cake. The bottom tier is a chocolate mud cake decorated to look like a tree stump holding up a 3 tier naked cake. I used only Australian native flowers and trees as the couple love the Australian bush, but the difficulty is that much of our available plants are South African natives so sourcing Australian only plants was very tricky also due to the winter season. Luckily, I was able to find amazing Australian natives which I absolutely loved and so did the couple. The cake is presented with the gorgeous natives in two watering can jugs.
The couple sent me pictures of themselves and their wedding outfits to help with the sugar figures, so you will see some pictures of the sugar bride figure with and without a green cape which she wore at the wedding. The couple love celtic and medieval influences, which I incorporated in her green cape and laurel in her hair. The dress has cake lace and modelled on her wedding dress. I loved the sugar figure with and without the cape so I took pictures of both. The figures are inspired by Carlos Lischetti and his amazing work. Hope you like it, I was so honoured to make this one x
