Four-tier Wedding Cake: Fruit Cake: April 2008

This four-tier wedding cake was made for a Botswana couple, who wanted the drape woven cakes with roses on the top. I had started the process in March by first making the four cakes with marinated fruits and nuts in liqor and then letting them mature and ripen with time by brushing them at regular interval with brandy over a period of four weeks.

I must admit that in my pursuit for perfection, with some practice by now, i have been able to understand a little bit about measurements and the drapes with the cake size/height ratio came out satisfactorily, also courtesy due to creative critique from my hubby.To add few more words, my first critics and admirers are my hubby and my son.
The wedding bells were embossed on the cakes and the drapes were pinned with daisy sugar flowers.

I was tagged by Gloria of for a meme to describe six words about myself. Quite difficult proposition, eh but this is what i am:
@friendly @honest @compassionate @energetic @fun-loving @dedicated

I would like to add my new friend Tartasacher of, who visited my blog for the first time and gave me an honour which i have to maintain. Thank you, dear !
