Cherry Blossom Lantern Wedding Cake, Lights UP!
This cake was custom made for my friends wedding, the bottom layer was neopolitan with chocolate buttercream 3 layers high, with a hand made wooden painted black lantern on top - these lanterns contain a flickering battery operated candle and authentic Japanese rice paper. The second tier has yellow cake with chocolate buttercream with another hand made lantern on top of that tier - flickering candle, all handmade. Top tier is all red velvet. Decor contains all handmade gumpaste branches, handmade gumpaste orchids, cherry blossoms of varying size with edible pearls, royal icing, etc. Very intricate structural system. Came out great and lanterns lit up the reception!
