Victoria's 8 Tiered Wedding Cake
June 17, 2017

Fortunately, I was more than happy with the final result, as were the happy couple!

Then, in the right and left sides of the cake I incorporate mini cupboards- filled with red and purple cupcakes. It was really important for there to be an element of surprise and mystery to this cake.
