the BEST DIY cake ever

I am thrilled, giddy, hopping about and around. Ever since i wanted the wedding cake to be a project of  mum and me. We were a bit nervous because we NEVER made a cake that had to be pretty. Just the usual housewife cheesecake things. 


We made a lday baltimore, rum cake as a basis.


and the only two things we bought ready are the fondant a a lily of the valley in sugar, which is not in the pics.


We decided to try a pink cake first, just to see how the fondant works. how to roll it over the cake and so on. and once we had rolled the fondant over the little raspberry cream darling, i started rolling and squeezing, cutting and playing with the fondant mass that it became so pretty we will use it for the refreshment at home.


let me show you our beatuy. we are so proud we could bust.

here was the inspiration


I am thrilled giddy photo 3475707-4we wanted round, double tear and  lily of the valley.


the lily will sit on the bow you see below. the lily of the valley is the only thing which is not hand made by mum and me...
