Chocolate/Green/White Monogram Cake

This story was SO romantic! Get this....the bottom tier is artificial so that I could hollow it out (like a bagel) and place a chunk of the actual wedding cake from the bride's parent's inside it! How cool is that?? They gave me the wedge of 35 year-old fruitcake, which I wrapped well in a few layers of Saran wrap, then carved out a wedge in the styrofoam cake dummy, fit it inside and then iced as usual with fondant. So...it symbolizes their marriage built upon the strength of the parents' marriage.

cool cake and what a neat story! Although it still doesn't make me regret that we ate our top tier the next day and didn't save it! It was yummy! I wonder if other cakes would have looked as good 35 years later.... fruitcake is something special in itself... heck it's decorated 2 weeks ahead sometimes before anyone eats it! I wonder if you could still eat it now.... after all it's been preserved in alcohol and a freezer right?? hmmm - nah I think I'll pass :)

Oh yeah, before I get 100 questions about the state of 35 year-old fruitcake...it was totally normal looking, as if it were only a year or two old. No gooey moldy mess or anything. (Believe me, I was afraid of what I would be getting too!! :lol: ) It came frozen and looked and smelled fine. I wrapped it really well in plastic wrap though, just to make sure nobody accidentally ate it!!

I love the story....how symbolic - I'm not that sentimental!! I love the design too...this colour combo is fantastic - don't know if I like your burgundy one or this one better!

I did screw up though. I had made the white gumpaste monogram plaque to fit around the 8" cake, thinking the 8" was a chocolate brown tier....but whoops, it only fit around the white tier! DOH!
