I have a picture of a wedding cake and not sure as to how it is done. Hopefully this will attach as it has come through as a pdf file. Looks as though it could be chocolate or scrunched up fondant. Where do the brides get these! Perhaps someone can help please.

To me it looks like fondant. Not scrunched up though...I was able to enlarge the picture and it looks like roses and then pieces just placed on top of each other but they have a design to them....kinda like stems and leaves. Well, at least that is what it looks like to me.

The cake looks like a copy of one that Mich Turner of Little Venice Cake Company does all the time. It is essentially chocolate roses with chocolate fans. Here is a link to her site. The "mandarin" in the wedding cakes/chocolate section should be pretty close copy. Her book "spectacular cakes" shows how to make this type of cake

hope this helps!

Thanks all. I have purchased the book that you suggested jillmakescakes and hopefully I will get some ideas. Great chocolate covered cakes on the site. Will let you know.

Sarah from Feats of Clay( the creator of the topper) emailed me back and said it was Fancy Nancy's that created the cake.

It looks like the PPs were right about the fans and roses idea.

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BRIARVIEW.......
but please don't download this file! I have a super anti-virus software and it has notified me that my computer was attacked and blocked 332 times within seconds of downloading because it contains a virus. Again, this has NOTHING to do with Briarview, it's the file.

Briarview, you've got mail.... icon_wink.gif

I just finished running another full-scan on my Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 and it again had multiple alerts on this file and even called it a "trojan virus".
As I explained, it's nothing personal, I only shared what happened to me and felt a warning about this file being possibly contaminated, is warranted. I've sent her an email suggesting she might want to check out her computer for a virus. They're no fun...I know personally. icon_wink.gif

Just to let you all know I have scanned my computer after Liniti kindly reported a virus. I use NOD 32 which I pay for and there was absolutely no virus. So I am not sure as to what has happened on Liniti's computer. Better to be safe than sorry. Thanks.
