Elegant Wedding Cake

Few weeks ago my best friend, Antonis, gave me a call asking for a simple wedding cake.  I was more than glad to proceed with this task and I started talking with the bride to be, Anna, about what she wanted.  The only restriction that I had is that they wanted a chocolate cake that would not be too sweet.  The rest would have been my decision.
I thought of an off white two tier cake with modern designs. I even thought of using black for the designs. Then I thought of a more elegant version with flowers, but I did not know what flowers to choose.  Finally, I decided that lilies would be a beautiful idea.
Flowers were the first to be made, and then the covering fondant.  I made a mistake with the color I used, and instead of an off white I ended up having a peach fondant.  I was very frustrated at first and I was about to make a new one, but then, I thought that it would look pretty if I used it as the bottom cake, and voila… The cake looked very elegant!!!

The happy couple after the wedding!

I was so pleased to see that my first effort in making lilies was successful that I forgot to capture the making procedure. I promise that I will give you a tutorial on how to make them in a future post.
