"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."
~ Germaine Greer
I just love a happy ending. Don't you just adore this picture-perfect couple? Hence the equally picture perfect cake, a topsy-turvy black and pink one. The best part was, they get to keep the cake because it's a dummy. Hehehehe.. brilliant idea for those who would like to 'preserve' their lovely wedding cakes.
I would have to admit that this was one of the toughest cakes I had ever done, and I admitted to Ruby that I never made a topsy-turvy cake before. She was such a darling to trust her instinct that I could do it. I was touched dear.. for her confidence in me doing her wedding cake, a once in a lifetime affair. I straight away told myself, that it's my responsibility to do my very best and there should be no excuse for that.
Working with a dummy cake proved to be more challenging than working with a real cake. It's very dry, it's a 2-tier polystyrene for God's sake what do you expect? Hehehehe.. I had to trim the sharp edges as they would easily tear the fondant. It took me & my husband quite a number of frustrating attempts in coating the dummy, and it was a huge dummy cake, as you can see on the photo courtesy of Ruby. The fondant had just got to be of the right consistency, I had to use CMC to help me achieved that but had to work fast. The geometrical patterns on the side of the 'cake' almost made me clawed my face ekekekeke.. but alhamdulillah we managed.
I also provided the gorgeous bride and handsome groom with a mini version of the topsy-turvy cake for the cake cutting ceremony. A chocolate moist cake; pure chocolaty heaven.
Other than the topsy-turvy 'cake', Ruby had as well ordered 400 pieces of chocolate mud brownies cut into small pieces and packed nicely as their wedding favours, complete with personalized thank you tags. Sweet.... From us both; Tisya & Hizzol, we would like to wish you two a wonderful journey being married. Thank you so much Ruby not only for your confidence in me but most importantly the friendship. XOXO!
