1st Wedding Cake!

Finished wedding cake!

Here it is! The final version of my first wedding cake ever (possibly my last!) — completed over 3 weeks/11 hours! The breakdown is as follows:

  • 3 hours – fondant covering, embossing, pleating, and trimming
  • 4 hours – creating roses, calla lillies, and leaves from white modeling chocolate
  • 3 hours – painting flowers and petals with petal and luster dusts, rolling stamens in cornmeal
  • 1 hour – arrange/assemble flowers and petals
