Peonies & Glamour

My fourth wedding cake (yes I’m counting until I get til 10 of them and hoping the nerves subside). The bride had seen a photo of a cake and fallen in love so I can’t take credit for the design itself. The original design was by Cakes by Judy C and I’m just hoping my cake does hers justice. I’ve tweaked a few things and made open peonies instead of closed and added buds and silver leaves (by very clever suggestion of the fabulous Atcakes ByRaewyn). The bottom tier is chocolate mud cake with milk chocolate ganache. The middle tier is white chocolate mud with IMBC (italian meringue buttercream) and white chocolate ganache and the top tier is traditional fruit cake. More time consuming than I’d imagined but I really enjoyed this cake

Absolutely stunning Jacinta!!! I’m not sure where, but I HAVE seen the original, and as lovely as that was, yours is far and away the most beautiful version! I love the silver leaves and thanks for the shout out but I know you would have come up with them on your own because you have fabulous taste and an incredible eye for detail. LOVE it!! – you have to sing that last bit haha! :) xxxx

Oh, just gorgeous! love the silver dragees…did you apply them one by one, or by another method if you don’t mind me asking? The peony’s are fantastic as well!! Well done!

So fabulous! I too was wondering if you applied the dragees one by one?

Love the silver dragees too- very nice!

Those dragees must have taken the patience of a saint to apply! Breathtaking result, well done
