Elizabeth & Jason Take the Plunge
This wedding cake is a chocolate lover's dream. The top tier is peanut butter-fudge marble with peanut butter mousse filling. It's truly a crowd-pleaser.
The middle tier is fudge cake with chocolate mocha mousse. The bottom tier is a vanilla-fudge marble with homemade bittersweet chocolate mousse. They are all slathered in real "butter"cream frosting and then blanketed in a supreme vanilla fondant.
The orchids were made from gumpaste and hand dusted in pearl dust to create the unique colors of the wedding. The labor for all the flowers took a total of 12 hours and three days to create with proper amount of drying and molding. That would be about an hour a flower. I made extra which was a good idea since I managed to break 2 of them at the reception.
I did cover the cake board with a fondant edge and rolled a design into it. I dusted it with pearl dust to give it a finished look. The ribbons and peacock feathers were real. I cannot claim the star of this cake because it goes to the topper, it was a hit!
