Hi guys! My friends are getting married tomorrow, very low key, and having a open house tea party. My first thought (after happy yay lovely for them thoughts) was 'can I make the cake?!'. I don't think it's the official one, but I said I was gonna make one and it's my edible present to them.
They have adorable young children and I always play lego at their house. So I got a lego bride and groom off ebay to top the cake.





I made chocolate leaves by painting the underside of rose leaves with melted dark chocolate, refrigerating, and then peeled off the leaf.
Sugar rose petals - dip the petal in egg white, dip in caster sugar. They taste just like they smell! It's weird but lovely.
I made a fondant icing rose which is on the top as well, I was planning on making loads of little ones to go round the bottom but my icing was too sticky and it was just a nightmare so I only managed one. Last time I buy pre-made fondant!

The cake is 8in, 4 layers, alternating chocolate orange with orange and lemon sponge. Sandwiched with marmalade and icing, the icing is orange and lemon and white chocolate butter icing.

I made a prototype cake yesterday to test the recipe, which I dropped as I got it out the oven, then dropped the icing on the floor! I managed to rectify it and it tasted pretty good. I tested a few methods of mixing to make sure I got a good consistency.

I used a traditional sandwich cake recipe by Mary Berry and added the flavours. I hope they like it, and that it survives the hour long car journey! My tins weren't big enough so it's in a box...

(I took pictures along the way to blog it, but I'm not sure where to post them... I can put more here if you want. I might set up a cake tumblr or something.)

I'm dead chuffed with it!
