Two -Tier Wedding Cake: Gold Flowers - July 2008

This cake was made for a young Batswana bride, who wanted golden flowers such as roses, lilies and ivy creeepers on a two-tier cake for their wedding, which will take place next week. Well, most of my last week day evenings were spent on covering the fruit cakes with marzipan and fondant, after they had been brushed regularly with brandy to let them mature over time. This weekend, I sat down to make the roses, lilies and ivy creepers and then individually paint them with gold. Amidst that, I gave myself a pause to make the spiderman cake..had to make child happy and smiling, isn't it! May the would be bride and bridegroom be blessed with love always !
