With weddings often comes a lot of behind-the-scenes stress and frantic planning. One thing that surprised me in the lead-up to this wedding, was how relaxed the bride was.
In our discussions prior to the wedding day, she sent a photo of a cake that she liked, which was a white round tiered cake with some flowers on top. Though this was the style she preferred, it was added that she was happy for me to make something else if I wanted - whatever was easier.*
The cake was simple but elegant, and actually reminded me a little of this jazz themed cake I had made earlier. The colour theme was white, black, and pink.
My main and only real concern with the cakes was making sure I could cover them completely without having to pinch and cut any of the fondant! Thankfully, I managed OK!
Unsure of exactly where to put the mini roses, I felt that they would work well in a ring around the centre rose. Once they were all arranged and looking presentable, I sugar glued them all into place :)
This is what the arrangement on top of the cake looked like from on top:
The tiers were attached, and it was complete! My first wedding cake, my second round of fondant roses, my third emotional roller coaster, and my fourth coffee for the day.
