2-tier Topsy Turvy Cake

I love how custom designed cakes can be such a thoughtful and personalized gift.  This 2-tier topsy turvy cake was for a pre-wedding dinner party.  The couple throwing the party was not able to attend the upcoming wedding and wanted to surprise the brides-to-be with this cake.

The colors of the cake were based off their wedding dresses - pale sage green and ivory.  I also added in "Bunny" who travels with them extensively.  Bunny was part of their engagement in Paris and the client asked if I could somehow showcase this on the cake.

The top tier was zesty lemon cake with lemon buttercream.  The bottom tier was vanilla butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.
The final touches: a handpainted Eiffel tower on sugarpaste sheet and a cake stand.  Et voila!  Wishing the brides a wonderful wedding and happy travels together.... and Bunny too!
