Purple-wedding-cake-large-file.jpg


First of all, the inspiration for this cake, was Lindy Smith's "Indian Wedding Cake" I wrote to her, and let her know that I was going to try it. She sent me a very encouraging reply.
But I had a hard time with the dark colours. In the photos it looks really patchy. In reality it was OK, and the purple was a rich regal colour.
The topper is made of pressed sugar with a royal icing net. The bride and groom wrote messages to each other and I sealed them in the little box. The idea for the messages came from emma from emmascakes. I wrote to her too and she said, "Go for it!"
Thanks for looking.
Karen
Oh, the cake is rich fruit cake, marzipan, and then fondant.

tanyacakes, I live in India, so getting it done was quick, easy and very very cheap! It cost me the equivalent of 10 USD for the pair of lifts.

Thanks all! I had a lot of fun doing this one, as I love drawing and painting, so I free-handed all of it. The lifts... I made a scale drawing, based on my cake design, and got it made by a metal fabricator.
