Hi All

 

I have just came from a consultation with a bride for a wedding cake in July

 

She is wanting what every bride wants, something elegant but different and has given me a list of things to include in the cake  and I am finding it impossible to include them all without it looking tacky and overdone

 

Can anyone offer me some advise - I have suggested a 4 tier circle cake with a handpainted countryside landscape and figurines of each of her children on each tier with her & her husband on top and to include little fondant decorations to represent their hobies (ie rugby ball, shopping bags, wine, cricket etc)

I am at a total loss, I tried to persuade her to minimise what she would like to include & pick a few main hobbies but she has her heart set on including everything

Any advice would be so helpful

 

She would like to include

Their new countryside living & home

Their 3 children

Her & her husband to be

their loves & hobbies - wine, cricket, shopping, hunting, haribo sweets, their new range rover jeep

 

Thanks in advance

Clare

I have no advice, but the word elegant isn't the first word that springs to mind when I read her requests.

I would suggest to make a drawing of everything she wants on the cake, so she can see how unappealing it will look and not elegant at all.

Thanks guys

This cake description isnt my idea of elegant, I will try and give her a sketch visual and see if it illustrates my worry further

 

Thanks
