Our first wedding!!

We made our first wedding and groom's cakes! We had so much fun---a lot of work but so much fun! The wedding cakes were various flavors. The large bottom tier is a yellow cake with vanilla buttercream. The cake in the middle is a white chocolate cake with strawberry and white chocolate truffle filling. The top tier is a chocolate cake with a cheescake/truffle filling.
The two cakes on the sides are red velvet.

I think we had to most fun with the groom's cake! They pretty much gave us freedom to do what we wanted just telling us that the groom loves to fish and has a Ranger boat. So, this is what we came up with. The groom's cake is also chocolate with the cheescake/truffle filling!

We made the decorations (bride & groom,fish, lily pads, etc) with gumpaste and fondant. The boat is a carved chocolate cake covered in fondant.

Here's a close up of the large mouth bass:

We had a lot of complimetns on the groom's cake before the wedding and we heard that everything tasted great later! So, I hope everyone enjoyed them! Thanks for looking!!
