Tattoo Wedding Cake

Chris organised this wedding cake totally himself as a surprise to his Fiancee
we used the design of his tattoo the meaning of the tattoo is himself & his fiancee as the top piece & their beautiful daughter as the bottom piece…a beautiful Maori Tattoo which such lovely sentiment, the fern wrap around the cake like a Koru which symbolizes new life, growth, strength and peace
Cake was to be finished with White Gerberas on top
Heavily inspired by “The Cake Tin’s amazing Maori tattoo cake”

Arohanui

awesome tattoo this is what I am going to do with my wedding cake thank you for the idea

Ciccio ...

Thank you Kiwicakebloke, Arohanui definitely describes this cake for me to the overseas people going ?? it means “Lots of love” or “Big Love” in Maori

Kiwicakebloke if you’re good at drawing I am not…teehee, it will look fantastic I found that mixing Americolor Superblack with Vodka gave me the best colour, but I drew it underneath using a black edible marker…you will so have to share you wedding cake with us when you make it…..when are you getting married?

What a unique and well done cake Jo! I know I couldn’t do such a detailed drawing without it being all wiggly!

Goreti ...

Impressive!

Ciccio ...

Thanks Toni & Goreti
Toni I had to trace it on the cake using the method done by Three little Blackbirds on Craftsy is a free video

Toni (White Crafty Cakes) ...

Oh yes, I was just watching that video a few days ago! I’m anxious to try using it and hand painting a cake someday.
