Scarily its less than 7 weeks now till my big day!
So as I'm attempting to make my own wedding cake. I've made the decision to do cupcakes for the quests but I do want a cake to at least 'cut the cake'.
Anyway with that in mind I tried to make a mini 3 tier cake.
And heres my attempt........
It actually looks a lot bigger than it is - its about 4/5 inch wide and about 8/9 inch tall.
I just made a basic sponge recipes
4 oz butter
a few drops of vanilla essence
I put all the mixture into a tray and then cut the tiers out with pastry cutters, sliced them in half and used raspberry jam and buttercream and put them back together. Finally covered the whole cake in a thin layer of buttercream and then put on the ready roll icing.
For the decorations I used old broken earrings (that I washed and sanitised first) stuck on with icing.
It's a bit bumpy with I'm really happy with my first go.
