The three tier mud cake was for 100 people, to be served with coffee at the end of the meal. Although Claire and Charlie had more than 100 guests. Rather than displaying a larger cake, they chose to have all extra cake in the kitchen.
I made the figurines of Claire and Charlie sitting together on the top of the cake. These were done in gumpaste. Sometimes I also make my figurines out of polyclay. It just depends what the person ordering them prefers.
A single bow finishes the back of the wedding cake and matched the bows on the chairs in the reception room.
The ceremony and reception was held at Merrimu Receptions in Murrumbeena . As you can see it was a beautiful December day. Luckily I was able to drop the cake off before the heat of the day, and before too many shoppers were out doing their Christmas Shopping at Chadstone.
Congratulations Claire and Charlie! Wishing you a wonderful day and a great future together!
