Sandra's Wedding Cake

This is the cake I made for my sister´s wedding. Only the top layer is real cake, the two bottom layers are dummies. I made the flowers out of gumpaste.The butterflies were printed on wafer paper. I put a layer of piping gel, piped the body and added the antenae. The topper is also made out of gumpaste. It makes reference to the moment my brother-in- law proposed in Venice. Both groom and bride outfits look like the originals. The inspiration for this cake came from Nati. Thank you so much!

Newbie question here: Do you build your roses on a teardrop shaped glop of gumpaste or start by wrapping a petal, and continue in that way? They are sooooo pretty. Your sis is lucky!

You can do it that way but I used a cutter (5 petals at a time) and then wrapped them around the bud. If you number the petals as 1,2,3,4,5 I would wrap 1, skip 2, wrap 3, skip 4, wrap 5, and then wrap the other two I skipped. It was a technique a teacher showed me. Thank you so much for the compliments. They were meant to look like her bouquet.

frindmi Says... 9 years ago

Thank you so much! It was fun to make although nervewracking to transport the figurines and flower sprays to Spain (18 hours in all). It was totally worth it, my sister and her husband loved it!

Thank you! This is just my second so I'm also in the learning road. Any book by Debbie Brown is great for learning how to make 3D figures. She is a genius!
