What have I been doing?
Well this little gem for a start!!! I realise that for a couple of weeks now I have only posted about Tuesdays with Dorie projects - I would love to say that I've been taking it easy and chilling but that could not be further from the truth. over the next few days I hope to be posting more cakes that I have been working on but this has got to be one of my favourites ever. This was for a couple from Wigan, Colette and Jeff who got married a couple of weeks ago in Cyprus and are having an enormous knees-up tonight in Wigan RLFC Stadium (I won't saything more about that hailing from rival town St Helens) but they are a lovely couple anyway.
The cake consisted of 2 tiers rich fruit cake, one chocolate fudge and one carrot cake. The brown ribbon (edible fondant) matched their delightful little girl's bridesmaid dress and the sparkly bits are edible 'bits' of fondant with added edible glitter. The design was adapted from a photo that the couple had - I'm sorry but I don't know where the original came from - with lots of amendments to make it their own.
Once again, Cara has come to the rescue and done this amazing shot.
I really love this cake and hope Colette and Jeff have an amazing night and many years of married bliss - What a fabulous job I have!
