Well, we finally got a chance to do do a wedding cake, and boy was it a giant milestone. The lovely couple, J&K, were holding their wedding celebrations at Hort Park, a unique and beautiful location.
This cake marks a couple of first for us; first 4 tiered cake, first cake with so many handmade roses, first cake that weighed 30kilos, or more!
The couple gave us some guidelines to work around with, and one to be noted was to have the ensemble look more like a tower, as opposed to "terraces", meaning that the difference in diameters of each tier had to be as small as possible. They also picked out the sweet color of the roses to be white with a hint of pink in the centers, and the cake base be in a cream color.
It took me a total of 2 and a half days to complete the roses, including drying time. i was working like a rose petal machine, and i must have made close to 600 petals for this grand set up. but, all well the effort, because the couple and their guests were really impressed with our cake! : )
Cakes were 8", 9", 10" and 11", and flavors were red velvet with oreos, lemon with lemon, chocolate with vanilla chip and vanilla with cranberry.
