Halloween Wedding Cake by claremanson Halloween Wedding Cake by claremanson
Halloween 2012, my wedding day. The theme was red and black so a red and black cake it just had to be.

It took three people to make this cake (i knew i would be too nervous and stressed to do it alone, which i was) My mother-in-law baked the sponges for me using my recipe. The bottom tier is chocolate sponge, two middle tiers bright red vanilla sponge layered with jam. The top tier is also a bright red vanilla sponge with jam but gluten free just for me. The whole cake is covered in black chocolate ganache as none of us are really keen on marzipan and icing plus i wanted something quick and easy. Making the ganache, sorting out the tiers with cake boards and dowels and decorating alone took 4 hours. On top the cake is the amazing cake topper my great friend and maid of honour :iconshaami: made of me and my husband out of polymer clay which she then painted. Sorry it is not the best photo, we finished the cake the night before we had to take it to the reception so had to take photos while it was a little dark.
Some wedding photos.

The making of the parts of this cake was a great team effort! :w00t: It was wonderful finally being able to see my cake topper together with your cake. You know how much I loved the cake. =) I wish I could've had more or taken some home. :hungry:

lol i was meant to say to take some home with you! i had one whole tier left, half went to mcdonalds, half went to dad to supposedly go to the school for the teachers but dad said he has been living on cake for three days so looked like he kept it all lol. As soon as i saw your tooper my worries for the cake halved because i knew all the focus would be on the topper. i could not have done it all on my own, thank you.

Damn! :XD:
I really need to work in Bridgwater McDonalds obviously. Or just pretend to be your dad, he he he. I really feel like making cake now, but I should be thinking about getting something to eat for dinner.
I'm so glad my topper helped to take away some of your worries. It was a fun little thing to make. I think I'm getting better at working with polymer clay. Maybe one day I buy some proper sculpting tools.

:giggle: what tools are you currently using? i don't have any professional things either but then again i don't make such detailed things as you.

I've got four plastic things, but I only really use two of them. The metal tools look like they'd work better, he he he.
