I completely forgot to post completed pictures of my sister's wedding cakelets.  I thought I had, but I guess I didn't...let's just call me "distracted" these last several weeks, mm'k?

So, the basics: 70 cakelets with a main 8" round cake at the top (I suggested the top cake could be taken home for their enjoyment later, or for freezing).  Cakelets made with two 2.5" rounds of chocolate cake with vanilla bean buttercream icing, topped with two 2.5" rounds of vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream icing. Covered with an inner layer of hand-made Belgian white molding chocolate, and an outer layer of pure white fondant.  Each cake hand-dusted with pearl luster dust, decorated with red and black sugar pearls and hand-stamped and sanded gumpaste snowflakes,a nd finished with a deep red ribbon the same colour as the bride's dress insets.  Each cakelet placed on its own individual tiny silver plate.

Each of the cakelet's designs was different; she doesn't like samey-samey!

The silk flower topper was made by her husband's Oma, who would have preferred to work with real flowers, but it was a February wedding and sis didn't want to take the chance that the flowers would brown or wilt.

All in all, it was a monumental undertaking for just one person, and while I had lots of time to do them, I really could have used an assistant, which would have made so many things easier!  I'm glad I did it, though, as this was my wedding present for the bride and groom. :o)

everything looks beautiful! I adore the snowflakes, in particular. What a wonderful gift! I am actually hoping to have my sister make my wedding cake as well, if I get married. :)
