Hello Everyone!

Here is a 4-tiered from this weekend, delivered from Western Massachusetts to Vermont (about an hour and a half away). The Hanora Winery is absolutely gorgeous and the staff were incredibly attentive and top-notch...just perfect! I'll include some pics of the venue as well as my cake because I was so in love with this place!

The cake was alternating vanilla/rasp cream filling and spice cake/pumpkin mousse filling, all covered with ivory vanilla buttercream.

Fondant leaves cut out with my Cricut and Make the Cut program, then dusted. The leaves weren't as bright as portrayed in the picture, they were a little more subdued than this.

Thanks for looking!

Susan

I was going to add in my original post, that I wasn't too fond of the bride's request to offset all the tiers, so that the backs of them were all lined up to the edge, but it came out okay....not my favorite, especially considering the top tiers were so close in size, that it really didn't give much of an effect, I don't think.

susychpstk, what a lovely cake! I didn't even notice it was offcenter until I read your futher post, but I think it had a lovely look! I am glad you mentioned it wasn't your choice, as sometimes (like my MIL went to a wedding that I did the cake & she didn't like the design, but the bride loved it) people don't understand you are giving the client what they want.

Thank you mj! I was just online looking at other people's Fall fondant leaves and critiquing my own for not being as multi-shaded as I would have liked them to be in the photos. In real, I actually thought I dusted them a little too much, but on camera, they look like one blah color....ughh! I was going to airbrush them, and after looking at pictures tonight, I wish I had given them some more color.

Thank you cycakes! Haha! Your MIL sounds like my family....my mom loves traditional white on white wedding cakes, so all the modern ones I've done, she'll say...."it's pretty.....but.......not really a wedding cake" LOL!

Love it, love it, great job we do what the customers want. I like your leaves. I have the cricut too, but what do you mean by the Make the cut progam?

Smooth icing, great job!!!!

Cascading flowers or leaves is a favorite design of mine. You did a really great job.
