Central Park Cake
This was definitely one of my favourite cakes to design. The couple got engaged in Central Park last year, so they wanted to re-create that in a wedding cake.
They also gave me their grandmothers famous Double Chocolate Pudding Cake recipe. It was quite decadent!
The cake was quite large and had over 150 servings. I tried to fit in as many of the famous landmarks in and around central park including the lakes, Bethseda fountain, Bow Bridge, The Obelisk, Guggenheim, Belvedere Castle, Engineer's Gate, Bandshell, Turtle Pond, The Great Hill and many more. I even made taxicabs which lined the streets.
Here is a view from above.
I also attached a picture of the template I made which stuck on my table for the weeks leading up to the wedding day. It was great to see it all come together!
