About 6 months ago, one of my friends asked, no, texted actually, if I could do her the honour of making her wedding cake and I was like…Yaaaa haaa!!! the honour is all mine. So together we planned it all out, threw some ideas together and came up THE cake, all covered in colour coordinated buttercream icing and LOTS of fruits. Thank God for sister Etomby for lending me fridge space to store this big baby <3. So last Saturday was the wedding and the cake made it all the way to Dorset in one piece…well, different pieces all assembled on site.  It was a 3 tiered wedding cake starting with 12″ Lemon sponge mama resting at the bottom to support everyone (covered in a slap-in-the-face-when-you-take-a-bite lemon buttercream), followed by a 10″ choco orange cake (covered in intense orange buttercream), then sitting on top like feather is the lightest 8″ Victoria sponge cake (covered in Vanilla bean buttercream). I promised pictures and here they are:
