Arun and Amilee’s Wedding Cake

I made this wedding cake two weeks ago along with 80 trays of chocolate brownies. The cake was a daunting task, more so because it was my own silliness, however, bride and bridegroom was happy with the end result and only the top two cakes survived for their first wedding anniversary. The rest of the cake has been eaten up by just the aunties and close family.

Initially it was suppose to be red roses then Amilee suddenly had this brainchild of utilizing green carnations with red berries and so the mad rush began to find someone to be able to get me those carnations.

The Bottom Tier - Semolina Cake and Carrot and Mixed Nuts

The bottom tier is Semolina Cake, the next is Carrot and Mixed Nuts, third tier was the headache of them all, Chocolate Cake!

Top Three Tiers Rich Fruit Cake

I swear I will never do chocolate cake again because the chocolate cake recipe I have is too soft to be tiered so I had to use 8 pillars to hold the next 14 kilos of Fruit Cake which made up the rest of the cake. I prayed so hard the cake would not fall and even told the dancers who were jumping on the stage off because everytime she jumped and moved wildly, so did the wedding cake. Alas all went well.

All the best Arun and Amilee.
