I have four weddings this year where, in exchange for full artistic license, the couple is receiving a free wedding cake. This was a great opportunity for all concerned to get something wonderful.
This cake allowed me to try out a new "basket weave" texture tool and a "pleated" fondant technique. It's difficult to see, but there is also a small black boarder around each cake that was actually used to hide the support plates... kind of ingenious and really added to the design!
I can't wait to see more pictures, possibly more angles, of this cake, but I really was thrilled with how this cake turned out. Big, dramatic, and a surprisingly fun cake. I have to say that delivering to Social Night Club was, well, A BEAR... there are stairs... lots and lots of stairs, but the bride and the staff did such an amazing job pulling all the details together that this really was a BEAUTIFUL reception venue.
Thanks to Amber with Artistic Imagery for the beautiful pictures. I'm waiting with baited breath for more (and more, and more, and more!!!).
