I was honoured when I was asked to make this wedding cake. The groom is actually my cousin. He is in the Australian forces. Over the years we haven’t seen much of each other, but it was nice to be a part of his special day.
The wedding was held at the Cerberus Military Base, near Hastings. I had never been there before, but they have a lovely stone church at the base called Our Lady Star of the Sea HMAS Cerberus. It was a splendid place for a wedding ceremony.
The design for the wedding cake was white and silver with a couple of fantasy flowers and a bow. The silver on the cake ties in with the silver detailing brides dress. The cake was chocolate mud with ganache and fondant. My most popular flavour.
I was also asked to make a wedding topper for the cake. The bride in her dress and the groom in his Military uniform. I was given a picture of the military uniform when I was making the figurines, so I could make the outfit.
