No ordinary wedding cake

I was so thrilled about this order, i lived it day and night.

One day in the mouth of march i gave a wedding cake consultation which i love doing… i sat  down with the mother of the bride only has  it was  a surprise. With paper and coloring pencils i started working with her ideas and my creativity… when she left my home she was very exited about what we had discussed and agreed on doing.

The theme was “trains and hand bags” the groom had a particular type of train he liked and for the bride it was the beloved designer hand bags.

these were very satisfying to make yet my eye sight probably gone worse since that day… working with very small objects can be freaky ! lot’s of patience is required.

Once again my painting skills were required, but this time not on a cake but on a canvas. it’s been years since i had touche paint.

I can now say that painting on a canvas is not the same thing as painting on a cake…  different technique is required. but for this project i found myself using all my skills and it was wonderful.

The effect of surprise was complete! the bride and groom didn’t want a traditional wedding cake and wanted it to be original ! it was a success, it became the center peace of the day 🙂

i was very proud of myself.

this is my first ever real wedding cake i made for a lovely couple that trusted me with the center piece of their special day… i was very nervous but it turned out to be a hit! everyone loved it and had tones of positive feed backs.

the theme was English/Caribbean, so i hand pained on fondant Caribbean flowers and quilted the two other coral color cakes. it had to be colorful… i think it’s just what happened
