Art Nouveau Wedding Cake Tower

Just what Purple Tiger from flickr ordered for her wedding. The over all design was created from her stunning b/w art nouveau influenced invitations.

Elegant and Devine, dark chocolate mud cake, covered with special vanilla buttercream and encased in chocolate rolled fondant. Styled with handrolled swirls, delicate handmade leaves and flowers, and edible sugar pearls.

The next two layers consisted a selection of white or dark chocolate mini mud cakes, decorated in the same intricate style.

What do you think?

I think the cake is lovely.

I also love your wristlets. So cool that you knit too.


I am having difficulty reading your blog as the white font on the black background tends to give me headaches.

So glad you are still around.

Thanks guys, and welcome back.

W - you could have this as an unbirthday cake, just because you wanna.

Bittersweet - from what I hear it was demolished with relish and hardly any left for breakfast.

Chocolatechic - hi there, knitting is my winter obsession, it also keeps the calories away (in theory), and I'll change the colour so its easier to read, any suggestions?

chocolatechic said...

That purplie color that your baking blogs links are aren't as difficult to read.

Knitting is my winter fun too. Alas, we are smack dab in the middle of hazy, hot and humid. I refuse to even touch my wool.

How about I swap the purple and the gold?

:D hmm I think I can only dream of such a beautiful cake as it would deform before it would came to Europe - me :( But at least I have pretty picture to dream of :)) It's really amazing!
