Chocolate Wedding Cake

What a busy weekend of cakes. Just wanted to share some pictures of a three tiered chocolate wedding cake I made for a good friend Ute. This cake was a real chocolate delight. I lost count of how much chocolate went into the making of this after about 6-7 kg, 25 eggs, kilos of butter not to mention sticking on hundreds and hundreds of chocolate cigarellos around the base of each cake.
Did I mention the sourcing of fruit which is all out of season for us here in Perth. When my supplier was unable to come through with my order of blueberries my husband { wonderful dear kind husband} went to six different outlets in search of blueberries for me, my visit to three other shops confirmed my worst fears, no blueberries. Mild hysteria and panic setting in at this point. No raspberries, no blueberries. Still as they say the show must go on and the cake was completed and I think the end result was pretty striking. Congratulations Ute and Adam, wishing you much happiness.
P.S. Thanks to my lovely little family for putting up with the kitchen being hijacked this weekend, without your support I couldn't do what I love to do.
