This cake is actually more skin tone than chocolate looking-very low lighting at the reception-champagne luster dust added afterward. Hoping the votive candles, when lit, would show off the shimmer! Leaves are white chocolate candy mold & white chocolate painted onto mint leaves, then brushed with luster dust. Pink satin ribbon around each tier. Inside is chocolate cake w/chocolate mint filling. Hope they enjoyed it-it was very hard to walk away once it was all assembled!
