Thank you very much, Ladies, for your input. The wedding was a few days ago and even my last-mentioned ideas changed somewhat. Anyway, here is the final 3 tier wedding cake, which is all dummy cake, and a cutting cake.        
Thank you to everyone for your suggestions and comments. I wasn't past the thinking it out stage when I first posted. I was awake at 3 am this morning, still thinking it out, and decided to get up and work on it. So I searched for pictures with musical, romantic and fairy themes, as well as a soft antique paper for the background. I printed them out, tore them out and made some collages and then printed those out. I think they look fine.   My next step is to have some...

I've been making armatures for some models for a gym cake. They will be stuck into a dummy top tier and won't be edible. I have a girl made with florist wire and alfoil and I've begun covering her with a mixture of fondant and modelling chocolate. Seems to be working OK, although I'm not sure that the coating will harden very much.    My major concern is a piece of gym equipment that I have begun to build from varying combinations of florist wire, sate sticks, strips of...
