The roses and leaves for this cake were all made with modeling chocolate. I've never worked with modeling chocolate before so it took some practice before I got used to it but I was happy with how these turned out in the end.
The cake was three tiers - all Ferrero Rocher cake (chocolate-hazelnut cake filled with chocolate-hazelnut filling and fresh toasted, chopped hazelnuts and covered in a chocolate-hazelnut ganache).
Each tier of the cake was surrounded by Callebaut white chocolate panels which were made using chocolate transfer sheets to give the abstract design.

I absolutely LOVE this cake - I wish a lifetime of happiness for the couple's whose wedding it was for and I hope they like the cake as much as I do!
