First of all, the inspiration for this cake, was Lindy Smith's "Indian Wedding Cake" I wrote to her, and let her know that I was going to try it. She sent me a very encouraging reply.
But I had a hard time with the dark colours. In the photos it looks really patchy. In reality it was OK, and the purple was a rich regal colour.
The topper is made of pressed sugar with a royal icing net. The bride and groom wrote messages to each other and I sealed them in the little box. The idea for the messages came from emma from emmascakes. I wrote to her too and she said, "Go for it!"
Thanks for looking.
Oh, the cake is rich fruit cake, marzipan, and then fondant.
