fondant & chocolate wedding cake

 This wedding cake comes with a story and that story is: 
I built this cake from two separate ones. The first 3 tiers covered in fondant and the forth tier decorated with chocolate swirls. Just before delivering it, I had to assemble it, i.e. put the forth tier on top of the others. Unfortunately when I picked up the chocolate cake absolutely all of my chocolate swirls fell down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not one of them was left standing on the cake!
You cannot imagine my cries and state of desperation, as I was expected to deliver this cake just 10 min from the incident. 
Luckily not all of the swirls broke when falling on the table and with the help of my husband I was able to stick them right back on the cake and deliver it. 
 The work of three hours was completely gone in 2 seconds!!!! and I think only GOD made it possible for me to put them back on the cake in 20 min. I have no logical explanation for how we were able to achieve this in such a short time.
THANK YOU GOD for watching over me and helping me!

This is the reason why the swirls are not as dense as I would normally make this type of cakes. Some of them broke and I had to cover the entire cake with what was left. 
This is why I do not like doing wedding cakes. Things could go wrong and I am not a bakery to be able to replace it on spot with a another one. But I guess I should deliver my cakes way before its serving, so if things go wrong you still have some time for remedies.
But all in all I think this was a great cake, I looove how it looked and I am happy I was able to make it. A classic design with my twist on the top and I love it!

  7. The cake looks beautiful, and we can't tell you had an incident. I like to have my cakes done and ready for delivery at least 5 hours before delivery/pick up time just in case something happen, but from experience sometimes is just hard to be on schedule.
    Great job with the cake and I am glad everything worked out in your favor.

  9. Felicitari arata absolut superb, mai ales dupa chinul pe care l-ai indurat. In weekend am facut si eu primul tort de nunta pt niste prieteni apropiati, si am trecut aprope prin acelasi lucru ca si tine, cei de la restaurant l-au asamblat fara sa ma cheme si i-au distrus toata stabilitatea. Nu mai puteam de nervi, dupa ce ma chinuisem la el si abia asteptam sa-l vada lumea si-au batut aia joc.
