Here it is folks! After all that build up - I pulled it off!
Three tiers, 12" 9" 6" and a great excuse to buy new pans.
Chocolate cake with raspberry jam filling, buttercream topping sealed with fondant. All my favorite things come together.
See my little floral wire staples to hold down the ivy? Yeah, I made that up. Yeah, I'm proud about it.
While, like any baker (or creative person in general, probably), I can't stop picking it apart looking for flaws, I have to say I'm pretty proud of it. It beats my last wedding cake, and I can only hope my future ones will be even better!
People can make money making wedding cakes, right?
