This cake was made for a bride who requested an Autumn themed cake for her October wedding. The inspiration came from her wedding invitations that depicted trees with an Autumn colour palette.
The bottom tier was a Chocolate fruit cake covered in ganache and fondant, which was then embossed and airbrushed to reproduce a cut log with the couples initials carved into it.
The extended middle tier consisted of a chocolate mud cake and a chocolate orange swirl sponge, this was fondant covered and hand painted using Cocoa Butter and Petal dusts. My first time using this wonderful medium, my thanks to Calli of Callicious Cakes for talking me through this technique.
The top tier was a a vanilla and raspberry sponge, which was topped with a pair of fondant love birds and a gum paste wreath of seasonal leaves and Berries.
