Black, White and Silver Button Wedding Cake

I absolutely loved making this wedding cake! I love the style and elegance it has to it with the different sized tiers and individual edible buttons.
This design was chosen by the couple which is original a SweetandSaucy design.

As they were only needing to serve 50 people the bottom tier is the only cake tier and the two top tiers are foam "dummy" tiers.
The cake was almond and praline layered and covered in a milk chocolate ganache.

Each of the buttons I created a mold for and then pressed out of fondant and hand painted.
The cake is then completed with a sugar handmade peony flower.

The Cake on display at its Venue, Quay Restaurant.

Gold and Purple Cupcake Tower

My first ever cupcake tower!
This was for an engagement party and has 130 cupcakes in total and a 7" Round Cutting cake. Half the cupcakes were Chocolate mud with a dark Chocolate ganache and the other half were almond/praline with white chocolate ganache.
Got to try out some fun new things on this job, my new airbrush got christened with gold edible paint along with the rest of the kitchen...
I am now a Satin Ice fondant user, no going to back to the old stuff!
