7-tier Wedding Cake

There is nothing worse than non-stop rain showers when you have to deliver a 7-tier wedding cake.  But I was very lucky, the rain subsided in the evening when I had to deliver this wedding cake to a reception held in Toronto's Distillery District.

This off-white 7-tier cake was alternating tiers of zesty lemon and strawberry vanilla cake.  Each tier was different heights and decorated with different styles, textures and lustre to give it a tall, elegant and grand look.
 
The bride provided me this photo of the gorgeous flower on her wedding dress which I replicated in sugarpaste.  I wanted it to be perfect - I actually re-made the flower 4 times to get it just right.

It's absolutely gorgeous! I love the details and most of all the flower. You did a great job! Just for the record :-), for how many people was that huge cake?

Kay Ryan said...

Wow that is amazing! Did you deliver it already stacked? Anything over 5 tiers makes me nervous, especially when im driving!

Brandy L - Yes, it actually stopped about a half hour before I had to leave and held off. phew!

Petite Foury - The cake wasn't that big on servings as some of the tiers were shorter. It was supposed to feed 80-90, but I ended up making the tiers wider so I think it ended up feeding 110+

Kay Ryan - I never usually deliver anything over 3 tiers stacked - I couldn't handle that stress :-) So, this was in 2 stacked cakes.
