White (Chocolate) Wedding

[envira-gallery id=”4854″]

Another cake which was inspired by one of my wedding cake dummies, and a variation on the original design.  The original was made from chocolate fondant, and I’d wanted to make a version in modelling chocolate.  The couple in question wanted a white chocolate version, so this time I used white modelling chocolate, and added the flowers/ruffles in pastel colours as requested by the customers.

It turned out my hands are a little warmer than I thought, as while handling the modelling chocolate it was necessary to keep popping the little ruffles/flowers into the fridge to firm up a bit as I was melting them by handling!

I was a little concerned about the placement of the cake in the venue when I arrived as it was just inside a window – luckily for me, but unfortunately for the couple, the weather wasn’t very sunny and everything was fine.
