Studio Ghibli Wedding Cake

Studio Ghibli Wedding Cake

This wedding cake was for a couple who love everything Studio Ghibli. Hand made sugar paste characters from all their favourite films were arranged over four airbrushed round tiers (12" chocolate, 10" vanilla, 8" lemon and 6" almond) which were aligned against a two foot chocolate tree. The cake was topped with hand made sugar figures of the bride and groom dressed as Totoro and Princess Mononoke sitting in the upper branches of the tree.

This was a tough and time consuming build (there were 600 individually wired sugar leaves on that tree!), but I was pleased with how faithful to the original design sketch it remained.

And in case you’re interested, here’s what the tree looked like before I added the sugar leaves and modelling chocolate bark:

Thanks for looking.
