Golden couple

Sugar and Ice of Shaw commenced work on a very special project back in November.  A great deal of preparation and work was involved, as this was basically a small Wedding Cake.  The wired flower arrangement was completed early November.  It took 5 days to prepare and 2 hours to wire together. The bottom tier was prepared early December - a freshly baked fruit cake containing glace cherries and walnuts; not to mention French Brandy! We iced the bottom tier well before Christmas, then boxed it and stored it at room temperature over the holidays.  Then on the 29th December, we baked a fresh sponge, iced it and created the top tier of the cake.  Finally, we added the ribbons, flower arrangement and a beautiful diamante "50" :0)

This cake was made for our Mum and Dad's Golden Wedding Anniversary on 30th December.  The bottom tier is a 12" fruit and the top tier a "6" sponge.  This cake would easily cater for 50.

It was very well received by the happy couple and all the guests at the party.
