I recently made my first real wedding cake. Technically, it was a cake with cupcake tiers and a cutting cake at the top. It's a really new trend that's just about catching on here in Malaysia. I am most grateful to have been given the honour to make the cake for this beautiful couple.
The cupcake tiers from the side view. I made the entire stand by myself using cake boards, styrofoam dummies, pretty textured paper and loads of satin ribbon.
Slightly higher view to show the different tiers. I made these tiers closer in size because the customer wanted height but not too large a quantity of cupcakes.
View from the top. I had to stand on a chair to take this photo. Love how it looks from up there.
Close-up of the top cake, which was also the cutting cake. It is covered in ivory fondant which is starting to bubble a little because of the heat. The pink ribbon bow and all the flowers are also handmade using fondant.

The inside of the cutting cake - it's dark chocolate espresso cake with orange creamsicle buttercream. Very yummy, if I may say so myself.
Sexy layers of cake, with just the right amount of buttercream.
