This was a cake I made for dear friends of my husband and I ‘Melissa and Jeremy’. As far as everyone knew they were planning their engagement party but a small few of us knew it was going to be much more than that….as everyone arrived at their home on Saturday they were welcomed by the most beautifully decorated wedding venue that was obviously going to be more than an engagement party !!!! it turned out to be most incredibly beautiful wedding which I felt so thrilled to be a part of.s
When they had initially asked me to make their cake they only had one request and that was that they liked the quirky idea of Jeremy having a ball and chain around his ankle …. well this is just the kind of challenge I like and as they basically gave me a free rein with the rest of making it this cake was great fun.
Melissa told me that she would be carrying a bouquet of pale pink and cream roses so i thought that by making these and a sugar paste love seat it would give the quirky characters a softer more romantic feel and with the help of a few pics from the bride of her dress and accessories I created my version of the newly Weds !!! of course in real life they are a million times better looking but as much as handcrafting icing allows I think I captured enough of their likeness for the guests to know who it was on the top of the cake when they walked in and that they definitely weren’t at an engagement party !!!!
The actual tiers were 8, 10 and 12 inch Chocolate Mud cakes and every bit of the figures were handcrafted out of sugar paste.
