Wedding Anniversary

Our wedding cake was amazing. We had it made at a local cake shop - Richard's Cakes in Urmston. The cake turned out exactly the way I had imagined in my head. Five layers - each covered in ivory rolled fondant and covered with fondant roses. The bottom layer was fruit and the rest was chocolate. It was the best chocolate cake I've ever had. Without a doubt.

To celebrate our wedding anniversary, I made a mini wedding cake for Mr G. Richard's kindly agreed to make the cake for me- three mini layers.

I chose a completely different colour combination to our wedding cake.

I decided to use mini cut -out fondant circles to decorate the cake.

This is what I started with. The cakes were covered with buttercream to make sure the fondant stayed put.

I bought some ready tinted rolled fondant. I have been really pleased with the taste and texture of M&B's sugar paste.

I covered each cake with a different coloured fondant.

I also covered the cake board and decorated it.

I topped the cake with one of the roses from our original wedding cake. I couldn't bear to throw them away and we had both eaten our respective weights in icing and sugarpaste roses.

I was so pleased with the finished cake.
Happy Anniversary Baby!!
