Wedding Cake - Petra & Monty

Thanks to Petra and Monty for allowing me the opportunity to make their beautiful Wedding Cupcake "Cake" for their July 2nd wedding at Skona House in Frenchman Cove.

I was very excited about the brown and blue colour-scheme Petra chose, as well as the hydrangeas as they are my favourite flower ever!

4-tiered stand custom made by Yours Truly (that would be me!)
75 Chocolate cupcakes topped with mint-flavoured buttercream icing and swirl-patterned fondant.
Each cupcake was topped with fondant flowers, coloured blue to match Petra's provided colour swatch, all individually punched out by hand, and centered with a silver dragee.
The topper cake was 3 layers of chocolate cake filled and topped with mint-flavoured buttercream, covered in swirl-patterned fondant and then finished off with silk hydrangeas. (We had to go with silk flowers, the flower shop told us real hydrangeas would not survive the day without wilting - personally, I think these particular "fake" flowers looked quite nice).
...and Voila!

I think it turned out beautifully!
