My first wedding cake!

The last couple of weeks I was so stressed out about doing this cake for my cousin!! Had so many sleepless nights worrying about the 250 mile drive to deliver, would it collapse etc!
Happy to say it arrived in one piece with nothing falling off!
As with all my cakes I wasn’t 100% satisfied but then I never am!! The piping was my nemesis as I’ve never learnt the art of royal icing pipe work. It looks far too “wobbly”, mostly my lack in skill but possibly a consistency issue too, I felt I really had to squeeze my bag??
At the end of the day my cousin and new husband were thrilled with it. Don’t know how you professional bakers cope with the stress of such important cakes day in day out!!
Flavours: chocolate baileys, vanilla Madeira and traditional fruit cake

Supplies: madeira cake chocolate cake chocolate ganache fruit cake marzipan buttercream fondant modelling paste

Tools: rose petal cutters cocktail sticks ball tool flower cutters

Any cake delivery is stressful, but especially so for wedding cakes. I would have been freaking too if I had to drive 250 miles!! Oh my. Your cake is so pretty, and your piping is lovely. Congrats on a wonderful job!!
