A February Wedding

This past weekend, I had the pleasure to make this 3-tier wedding cake for a lovely couple from Ohio.  They chose Toronto as the wedding getaway destination for family and friends.  Yes... Toronto in February... where our average temperatures are usually -10 °C (14 °F).  They wanted to do something different and heard lots of great things about Toronto.

Well, as luck would have it... we had an unbelievably warm and very sunny +10°C (50°F) day for their wedding.   I made this 3-tier cake based off of the Martha Stewart vintage daisy design with handmade sugarpaste cake topper and buttercup yellow roses.
 The top tier was chocolate sour cream cake with strawberry buttercream.  The middle tier was strawberry vanilla cake with strawberry buttercream and the bottom tier was chocolate sour cream cake with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream.
