Birch Bark Wedding Cake
This wedding cake was a fudgy chocolate cake covered with caramel and iced in a caramel-butterscotch buttercream. Yum! I didn't like the original buttercream that this recipe called for so I made up my own and I find it addictive, although it is quite rich so it wouldn't be for everybody!
Each tier was wrapped with strips of fondant "tree bark" and the couple's initials were carved into the middle tier and brushed with brown food coloring. A few eggplant tulips and some lime green leaves completed the design.
Two lime green and smoky grey (the wedding colors) dragonflies were also added on wires.
The catch is that the wedding is in Tofino several days from now and I was on pins and needles worried that the cake wouldn't make it there without any damage. Luckily, however, I've already heard that the cake made it there fine and the bride and the groom both loved the cake!!
I was happy with how the cake turned out and I'm so delighted that I could make a cake to be part of such a gorgeous wedding! I've seen pictures of the flowers, colors, design, etc and it is going to be fabulous! Congratulations S & T!
