Just to say thank you to everybody, who came yesterday to taste the trial wedding cake .

I hope that everyone enjoyed their afternoon with a slice or two ( or four 😮 )

Here are a few shots of making the 5 tier wedding cake.  By the way, it took 3 days to make the sugar decorations and the bottom layer (only because I was trying to find the best way of doing it and it had to be redone)

The rest of the cake (4 tiers of different flavours)  was done in 3 days.

No fondant or marzipan covering, the cakes are covered with thin layer of Swiss meringue buttercream of different flavour.

Here it is!
