    Thank you you are all right

    Assembling it up there is my choice as well I think, but it is fraught with problems that I didn't think about

    To make sure that there is a perfect seal between the tiers it is better to stack the cakes when the icing is still soft otherwise there is a chance that the icing might crack. If it was sponge cakes it wouldn't be so bad but the fruit cakes are heavy









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......

    So all 3 cakes are now covered with marzipan and I have made all the orange gerberas, they still don't look like a gerbera to me though

    I made 4 different types and sent them up to Hannah to have a look at so she could choose which one she preferred and she decided on the one I'm now making.

    I'll post some photos tomorrow so that you can see what I've done so far.

    I now have the pink flowers to make and some strings of pearls, I'm not sure if I am going to use them yet though, but it's better to make them just in case.

    My hands are killing me, so I'll leave it until Monday to make the pink flowers I think.

    Hopefully I can catch up with some work on here, as I feel I'm neglecting everyone

    It's Charlotte's 18th birthday next week and I've had to tell her I will owe her a birthday cake, I felt terrible but she said as long as it's a chocolate one she doesn't mind

    When is your 25th? It's ours next year, we had planned on going back to Hawaii but it's just not going to happen until the exchange rate improves, so it'll be back to Florida and we'll find something special to do there :D

    As promised here are some photos of the orange flowers and a couple of the marzipaned cakes.

    I also have the cake topper now and I must say it looks much nicer in person than it did on the web, I think it will finish off the cake especially with a ring of flowers around the base.

    The flowers are all hand made so they aren't perfect by any means and they aren't all here

    Next job to make the pink flowers and some leaves.

    Wow! How'd I miss this thread?

    Keep it coming Wendy. I'm finding this really interesting.

    Just don't tell my DW that it's a fruit cake. Every year at Christmas she has to have a fruit cake and every year I get to tell her that I think they'd be better served as building supplies.

    Tom (... but with a bit of brandy anything is possible!)

    Building supplies you have obviously never had a good rich fruit cake :D it needs to be very dark, plump and moist with just the right amount of sherry, kirsch and brandy :D Well, that's what I use in my recipe anyway, I've been using the same one for over 30 years. I'll type it up and then you can give it to your DW so she can make it for Christmas :D

    Chris always says it smells like a brewery when I'm making cakes I don't use apricot jam or boiled water to stick the marzipan to the cake I use brandy and then a thin coating of kirsch to stick the icing to the marzipan.
