Halloween Wedding Cake Slice by claremanson Halloween Wedding Cake Slice by claremanson
This photo basically sums up my wedding day. Pumpkins, black and red theme, red petals from teh cake, a spider from my wedding reception, my wedding bouquet and a slice of my wedding cake.
This is one of the red vanilla layers with jam and black chocolate ganache. There were two types of red vanilla tiers, one regular and one gluten free for me. I didn't get a chance to take a photo of the chocolate tier.
The sponge was so moist (my mother-in-law made the sponges, i made the chocolate ganache, designed, put together and decorated it) and the ganache was so rich and tasty.

Whole cake.

Thank you :hug: Yea, I've always really loved my birthday and been really proud of it, which led to me actually getting a tattoo on the back of my right shoulder of a scary jack-o-lantern, with a spider's web and spider and the word's "Trick or treat?" above it =D
I like black well enough, but funnily enough one of my most favorite colors is orange =p Haha!

ChibiSweetie Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2012
Yeah, it is something to think about and be picky about, as it's going to be on you for the rest of your life. I have 3 tattoo's so far, and a couple idea's in mind to think about in the future. Honestly, I keep coming up with different idea's for tattoo's, but I'm running out of body parts! Haha! They hurt, but if you can get past the first one, they're kind of addicting =p Lol.

it was very good, the mother-in-law used up a whole pot of red colouring paste for it and I 2 whole pits of black paste for the ganache, was good stuff.

I'm glad it came out good! I want to make my wedding cake but it's always a gamble on if it will come out right or not.

claremanson Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
a very big gamble indeed, i was mainly worried because i haven't made a tiered cake before with cake stands and dowels so it wasn't until it was almost complete i knew it was going to turn out ok so if you do do it yourself (we had to because of the gluten free thing and cost) if you can do a practice cake first.

A practice cake is a good idea!

Gluten free is costly and Im not sure I would trust anyone else to make it so I'll probably make it myself when the time comes.

Again, congratulations and many many many years of happiness to the both of you! :)

i was a little worried about the mother-in-law making my gluten free tier but she did a great job of it, followed my recipe just fine, was also a little worried about cross contamination from the none gluten free tiers but i was extra careful to use a different knife to the other tiers when covering with the ganache and i had cake boards in between so it was fine and a lot cheaper than a fully gluten free cake.
