In-laws gold weddingcake

A gold weddingcake for my in-laws - I would have liked more gold on it, but the colour was nearly impossible to paint with, not at all as I remember it. But nice to know I still have some skills, I was actually pretty nervous about this one...

It´s a layer-cake with strawberry mousse and lime syrup - nice and light because we had it after a scrumptious dessert-buffet :)

The figurine on top is the original from their wedding 50 (!) years ago, so very nice - makes me sad I didn´t save the one from our own wedding 20 (!!) years ago. But that one was terribly plastic anyway, so never mind.

Sealand Cakeshow 2013

This is my contribution to Sealand Cake Show 2013. I´ve had the image below lying in my "next project" folder for ages, and if wasn´t for Sealand Cakeshow, I never would have come to creating this little piece. -Which was fortunate, because it won first prize gold - much to my surprise! :)
