This cake turned out to be quite a stunner. It is classic and elegant and definitely captured the look Mythreyi and her fiance were going for. Mythreyi came to me excited about her wedding cake. She had heard from me through her friend, who happens to be Deepana's sister! What a small world hey? Well, Mythreyi came over to meet me one day and we discussed her ideas. I must say, she knew exactly what she wanted and came prepared with inspirational photos. She wanted three white tiers with pops of deep red against the white cake. She wanted cascading roses from top to bottom. She also wanted to personalise the cake with their initials on the top tier. And of course, she wanted chocolate, and even requested for the middle tier to be vegetarian so that all guests were able to enjoy their cake. Mytheri is wonderful and so organised! It was such a pleasure to be chosen to be part of their special day!!
So, here are a few progress pictures I snapped up to share with you all. Enjoy!

I have to say, I am really proud of this creation and the way it turned out! I love the variety of roses (from buds to full ones) and the effect of them cascading. It was scary transporting this cake from my place to the restaurant because you'll never know what's going to happen along the way. Thank God it made it to the venue in one piece. That was the longest time I held my breath! Lol.
I hope you enjoyed today's post!! Can't wait to share a fun and colourful one with you next week...more fun times ahead!! Have an awesome weekend and see you on Monday!!
