"Nightmare Before *~Halloween~*

This would have to be the best, most enjoyable, most rewarding and AWESOME wedding cake I have ever done! *~Thank You~*

On the 14Th of March this year this awesome couple stepped foot into my showroom with a collection of pictures of their dream wedding cake. Little did the Bride and Groom know... I also was in "LOVE" with this wedding cake!
The highlight of my cake career was this 4 tier mad hatter.
The top and the third tier was a chocolate hazel nut mud and the second and bottom tier was a creamy butter cake each covered in our rich chocolate ganache and brightly coloured RTR.
The main colours used were dirty wedge wood blues, burgundy, dusty purples and black with the smaller details being in orange, dark green and ivory.
I made icing figurines for the top. "Jack and Sally" from Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. This is one of my all time favourite movies and I LOVE JACK!
Sally was a great figurine to make but it was Jack that tested my patience. Jack is very skinny and is a very fragile type of figure. He took the most time to make as each arm and leg had to be held in place to dry but the topper was an awesome experience to make! *~I wanted to take them home for myself haha ~*
After spending bulk hours making this cake it was time to deliver. I was so nervous delivering this cake with my good mate Arthur as it was so large and because I had put in so much effort into this cake that I didn't want ANYTHING to go wrong.
We got to Peel Manor in one piece (so did the cake) after a long slow drive it was time to set it up on the cake table.
When I walked into the room it looked STUNNING! I really didn't want to leave after my job was done!
Before I could even put the cake down on the table I had all the staff and also the bride and groom's parents around the table speechless. This was one jaw dropping cake that the Bride and Groom had to see before their wedding ceremony (on separate trips as they couldn't see each other).
It was the most rewarding experience to be standing their while the Bride and Groom looked at their cake and fell in love with the work I had done for them. I then knew that it was perfect especially getting hugs while covered in food colouring and icing sugar while the Groom looked fantastic in his suit and the Bride looking ever so beautiful with hair and make up done waiting for the right moment to put on her dress. This moment was the best ever! I didn't have dry eyes that's for sure!
I hope they had a great wedding day! I know this cake will be one that I won't ever forget! THANK YOU!
Check out the pictures! (I will post up more soon)
