    Good luck to you. I am all for DIY, but this is one project I know I wouldn’t be up to. You may want to check out the cake cricut. It may be worth the investment, if you plan to continue with this type of thing after your wedding.

    Go with the cherry blossom stencil. That sounds awesome!

    I’m not 100% sure I understand, haha, but from what I do, it looks pretty cool. Will it be structurally sound with not going straight up?

    I think this could turn out very nice. Instead of modeling chocolate I’d probably go with chocolate ganache- it’s a bit more forgiving when it’s hardened. A little corn syrup or butter in the mix will give it the high shine you’re going for too.

    I think it sounds like a beautiful idea!  I would definitely give yourself as much practice as time and funds allow you.  It looks complicated, but I bet it will pay off!

    It looks SUPER complicated but from what I understand of it, I think it would be beautiful 🙂

    I have some cake experience.  You definitely need professional help with this one.  However, nothing you mentioned is impossible.  Perhaps if the design was airbrushed onto the chocolate using the stencil?  I don’t know if the pearl luster will work w/ the airbrush, though.  This is a beautiful idea.  I like how you are keeping it edible and delicious!

    That sounds beautiful. I’d like to see how it turns out and it looks like you have sometime to play with your idea. Please post pics and let us know how it turns out!! 🙂

    Love anything with cherry blossoms!  We are also doing cherry blossoms as part of our theme (it’s at a Japanese venue).  We have cherry blossom fans, sign in book, menu, etc. and of course cake!  (getting it in ivory rather than green as shone here).

     

    Your idea is SOOOO cool, love the idea of the stencils and shininess!
