Lightening does strike twice after all. Oh happy day! Cake Central published another one of my cakes in their magazine. This time the theme was Chandelier Cakes. "Wow!" I thought, what a great theme. This would be the perfect time to make a very elaborate detailed cake. So I got my thinking cap on and gave it a go.
My first idea was to make a hanging cake... like a real chandelier. Yeah right, how on earth am I going to do that? So the practical person inside me let that silly idea go... but the creative me kept going back to it. With the help of my wonderful husband, (Thank goodness he's more left brained than I am.) we actually figured out how to make the cake hang. It's really quite fun to go to Lowe's & Home Depot and shop for cake decorating supplies. ;)
Gotta love those Granny glasses...
This picture shows the size of my roses. They were huge!
could attach everything that hung down.
I loved the detail on the middle tier.
Touching up the final details.
I loved the shot from this angle.
A lot of blood sweat and tears that went into this cake... it must have taken a couple years off my life. I'm very happy with the way it turned out! So in the end, I guess a couple of years is worth it.....
