mrs daphne loughrey my story
I started decorating cakes as a hobby practicing on dummies. Now I am onto my third wedding cake for a friend. As I am still just starting out I asked her to tell me what shape and colour she wanted.
She decided she wanted red and white square cake with dividers not pillars so I looked at few designs and came up with this one. It is a three tier carrot cake.
The week before wedding I cut out some small flowers about 150 of them,lol. Ibaked the cakes then crumb coated them. I put them in the freezer until two days before the wedding and then covered them with fondant.
For dividers I used thee square dummies and covered them black fondant. The flowers were arranged down the side of cake edible diamonds were inserted within.
The cake topper was very plain. A white bride and groom. The bride has a long veil which I added with some red diamonds down the back of it. It really gave it a lovely effect.
My friend started to cry when she saw it, which I will take as a compliment :-)
What do you think?
