This wedding cake was made with a heavy heart. My lovely Mum passed away on 7 July 2010 with this wedding order happening on 8 July 2010... Anything else I could've turned down but not somebody's wedding.
Fortunately, this was a simple order with regards to the decoration, just lots of pretty sprinkles on Raspberry & White Chocolate, Limoncello and Madagascan Vanilla cupcakes topped off with a Madagascan Vanilla layer cake... it was very pretty but will always look at this with sadness I fear.
The lovely bride was over the moon and her bright and cheerful smile did help loads when I was setting it up... congratulations and I wish you every happiness for your future. x
A notoriously difficult character to capture... ok with my first attempt, though there are many things I would change... those being:
• bigger ears, further apart
• higher arc over the eyes
• wider set mouth/cheeks
And he definitely needs a Minnie to keep that smile on his face :D
Here are the little dogs, all dusted and painted to give them character... a little tall to fit in the cupcake box though, lol!
My very first attempt at making little fondant dogs... so much easier than I had first thought, just need to break it down and see what happens :D
These need a dusting of golds and browns to give them a bit more character, just need to let them dry first...
