And it came out better than I thought it would! My brother and his finacee wanted me to do their wedding cake, so I agreed. I started two weeks in advance making roses out of modeling chocolate, since I'd never done that before. Give some extra time just in case it didn't work! I didn't want to do gumpaste, since those aren't really for eating... Heh. Check it out here!
Anyway, I just wanted to post it here since this is my first wedding cake, and the biggest cake I've ever done! I'M SO HAPPY I'M DONE! *sigh of relief* Thanks to tutugirl, tonedna and several other people who gave me advice and inspiration to get this done!
Wow! that is gorgeuos! I love the colours and Well Done!
Wow!!!! You're excellent! You should be proud!!!!!
Do you make modeling chocolate rose just like you do gumpaste roses?
It's similar to gumpaste, but the petals will melt if you handle them too much. I had to work fast!
your cake is beautiful.. and your roses are gorgeous.. twiggy2. yes, you make the roses the same... some people make them on a skewer. i make mine off the skewer,etc. i am making some now for an anniversary cake coming up.. i hope they are as pretty as kansaswolf...
Wow that is very gorgeous! You should really be impressed with yourself, Im sure everyone else was!
BEAUTIFUL CAKE....LOVE HOW YOU ADDED THE PEDALS..
Beautiful job! Wonderful cake.
Thatt is one awesome cake! I love how the roses are different shades of red/pink. They turned out so nicely!
Congrats!! you are REALLY GOOD!!! I saw that you used cream cheese fondant..sounds NUMMY!!! (nice+yummy) I will try your recipe.
Soooooo, that's the offset cake, eh? What did you use for support, did you get the SPS?? GREAT JOB! Very beautiful and very unique!!
Yup, this is the offset cake! I didn't use SPS, but after cutting all those dang dowels, I think I might make the investment for the next one... I set it up onsite before the wedding, and not a tilt in sight! Had to do some architectural planning, but the end result was worth it!
What size pans did you use? This looks great!
Ooh, I didn't mention that, did I? I used a 12/10/8/6 for this!
congrats, so intricate and polished looking - you should be proud.
