I just had a client ring me to thank me for making her wedding cake. She was absolutely thrilled with the result and said that the cake was magnificent and tasted great.
The cake is also uploaded onto another website and this client has taken the time to join-up just so she could make comments on my cake. I must say I am feeling a bit chuffed (= kind of like proud) awwhhh!!! icon_biggrin.gif

Wow, beautiful work.

X2 cherry cake? What's that?

And the icing is white chocolate? But the chocolate curls look to be a different color?

Thanks everyone.

In Australia we have a chocolate bar named "cherry ripe" it is a combo of cherrys and coconut covered in rich dark chocolate. They are very nice and very rich. Anyway I have a recipe for a mud cake made using the cherry ripes and it is delicious!!! In fact it is my most popular requested cake far above any other. I usually cover it in dark choc ganache but for a wedding cake I wanted to do something different. I was inspired by a Louisa Morris Designed cake I saw on the flickr website and made my cake sort of similar.

I haven't done the chocolate swirls before and they are a little bit different as I used different chocolate than I did for the cake panels. It is very hot where I live and the chocolate was melting before it would swirl. I used 3 blocks just to get that number of swirls.

I learnt a lot making this cake. Next time I would make my flowers the creamy colour of the chocolate so it blends together better. And I wouldn't make my bottom layer quite so tall.

Thanks again for your kind comments.

Those are both amazing cakes! My daughter wants the Harry Potter one also. I told her those figures would take forever to make. Her reply: "you can start now." icon_eek.gif Kids--you gotta love them!

Again, great cakes!

Just further to my story....The bride just dropped of the payment for the cake and gave me a $50.00 tip!!! Which I will donate to the Victorian (Aust) bushfire appeal. thumbs_up.gif

(For those not aware a large portion of Victoria was devastated by bushfire 10 days ago with hundreds of lives lost, thousands of homes destroyed and millions of dollars damage done. Entire towns were burnt. It is Australia's worst ever disaster.)
