I sketched my own because I didn’t find anything I liked. It looks busy, but it’s shades of ivory with red roses and black and light gold fondant accents, so hopefully it’ll translate to be opulent and Victorian-ish instead of gaudy.

LOOOOVED our cake. Simple, elegant, with a little something-something – completly our wedding 🙂 It also had a nice pearlized shimmer to it all.

Our wedding had a roving dinner, so we chose a bit of an unconventional cake. It was a massive hit. The top cake was dark chocolate hazelnut with chocolate shards. The bottom lays consisted of strawberries dipped in chocolate, chocolate truffles and cream puffs filled with baileys custard. Yum!

She is only charging us $350 for 4 tiers…fondant covered…including delivery and set up!!

I love that idea !
Any bees with cakes that were not light colored? I am hoping for a chocolate cake 🙂

- Wedding: December 2010 - Savannah, GA
When my mom first started decorating cakes, she used to make a chocolate wedding cake. It had milk chocolate frosting (this was before fondant was used all the time) and dark chocolate roses. It was very beautiful and elegant. I don’t have any pictures of one though.

@almost mrs: Hey I also live in south yorkshire and found a really great priced lady who makes cakes, her facebook page is caroline crumb cakes – she has pics of cakes she has made and will also try and replicate what you show her – for example I have requested a cake that has intricate hand drawn lace all over it and 3 really tall tiers (equivalent of 6 regular tiers) and it is costing £250. I had previously got a quote from her for a much simpler cake and it was about £65 for 60 people but as I needed it for more people it was going to work out a little more – here are pics of the cake. The 2nd is one she actually made I took it from her facebook page x
