The cake is chocolate with butterscotch flavored swiss meringue buttercream and covered with butter flavored Marshmallow fondant (I know, that's a whole lot of butter ;P). Accents are made out of gumpaste and Royal icing. Its all edible except for the ribbon, silver dragees, arbor and the platform the toppers are sitting on. The topper is to be 'saved 'that's why I mounted it on a platform. I'm happy they liked it.
