On 27 October 2012 I got married to a wonderful woman. On our wedding cake were a pair of rock climbing wedding cake toppers made by my brilliant and amazing wife.
My wife and I share a love of rock climbing. It’s just one element of our partnership, our support for each other and the life we share. It therefore seemed appropriate, symbolic and fun to have these figures on our wedding cake.
The cake itself tasted great. It was a dark chocolate marquis. This basically means that each tier had two layers – a base of dark chocolate, fudge cake that was topped with a thick, creamy chocolate mousse. The entire cake was finished with more dark chocolate, chocolate shavings and giant, chocolate dipped strawberries. A sort of chocolate mountain for the cake toppers. The cake was made early on the morning by the Euphorium Bakery in London.
The cake toppers themselves are made of different coloured FIMO modelling clay. The little figure of me was held in place by a wire up its bottom (my wife says this isn’t symbolic).
It was a fantastic cake and an amazing day.
A big thank you to my Dad for the photographs.
