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
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.
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
