Orchids and Crystals Wedding Cake

Following an initial consultation Amanda had specified the use of orchids and "bling" in the final design in order for the cake to seamlessly coordinate with the wedding venue decor whilst maintaining an overall feel of sophistication. Amanda then fell for one of the design sketches (inspired by Sex and the City 2) which incorporated a chic all white cake adorned with Swarovski crystal touches and beautiful orchids. The five tier cake was separated with customised stands that were dripping with strands of Swarovski crystals and that gave the illusion of the cakes floating in air. The cake sat on a floral arrangement of scented orchids that gave that extra opulence and wow factor to the overall design. The cake consisted of a rich chocolate bottom tier filled with Belgian chocolate ganache, a Victoria sponge second tier filled with lashings of raspberry conserve and vanilla buttercream, a carrot third tier with a cinnamon mascapone filling, a zingy lemon fourth tier filled with lemon curd and lemon buttercream and a fifth tier of Victoria sponge filled with strawberry conserve and vanilla buttercream.
