4-tier Wedding Cake with Sugarpaste Orchids

Oh, how I love orchids!  When I create them out of sugarpaste, I love the process of creating each petal over the course of the week, dusting them with petal dust, putting them together and then finally placing them on the cake.

Ever since I made this bridal shower cake, I couldn't wait to make this wedding cake.  I loved how it all came together when I set it up at the wedding venue, The Church at Berkeley.
The flavors were chocolate sour cream cake with chocolate swiss meringue buttercream (bride's favorite) and zesty lemon butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream (groom's favorite).
The very next morning, I received this email from the bride, "Thank you sooo much. You truly outdid yourself this time! That cake was STUNNING!! People couldn't stop talking about it! The orchids?!! Oooh la la!!!! A-ma-z-ing!"  That sure made my day... actually, it made my week!  I love what I do!
