Four-tier Wedding Cake: Electric Green Shade - September 2008

This cake was made for a young Botswana couple, who had requested a square shaped wedding cake with specific electric green shade to match the bridal marriage theme with few red roses and ivy leaves and a simple floral royal icing design on the three tiers. The cakes are all fruit cakes, which were matured over time and this is my first square shaped wedding cake. I found it difficult than round cakes, especially with maintaining the straight contours and how to avoid the clutter effect of the designs and to have a pleasant visual impact. My friend Christine and I worked on the cakes and the couple were fairly happy with our work.
The week had been busy with several birthday cakes and ensuing week will follow with another wedding cake. Will soon post the cakes in my further posts. I hope you all like this cake !

Four-tier Wedding Cake: Turquoise Blue Drapes

After attending lectures on regression analysis and company mergers and acquisitions and elements of corporate finance, I heaved a sigh of relief, when i returned home and picked up my sugarcraft tools to finish the wedding cake, that was requested by a young Botswana couple. Turquoise blue was the wedding theme and i had to match the colour of the drapes to the wedding dress. As usual, I worked along with my friend Christine to meet the specifications of the cake (all fruit cakes) requested and here it is ! The couple were happy with the desired cake and i hope you will all like it, too !

Three - tier Wedding Cake: Roses - August 2008

This three-tier wedding cake was made during the last week of August for the Botswana bride and groom, whose wedding theme included the colours of pink and white. Roses, i have seen, are almost always the choice for the new couple and here i was, making this cake. The fruit cakes were matured in brandy and after the roses and blossom flowers were made, i sat down with my friend Christine on a late evening to decorate the cakes. We worked over the night to give the finishing touches and then finally sank on the couch at 4 a.m. to relax over coffee.
The couple came in the morning to collect the cake and i felt happy when i saw a satisfying look on their faces.
I could not post the cake earlier, as i have been very busy at work and now am off to Jo'berg for MBA classes but decided to post it prior to my leave. I hope you will all like it !
