This was my very first wedding cake for a friend's daughter. The cake was a very heavy chocolate mud cake and weighed over 20kg, in fact I could not lift it of my kitchen table, thank goodness my husband was not working on the day. The characters I made from rolled fondant, the top tier was a dummy cake. I have now learn't about a kitchen cake, so have learn't the hard way, this is what happens when you are an amature. Apparently it took 2 very strong male weighters to lift the cake and the table together into the kitchen for it to be cut for the guests!!!
