The cake that started the soft fruit madness!

Ta da...at last I've made the last soft fruit for a while...well, actually that's not strictly true....I'm actually STILL making them as I'm filling a basket now. It's going to be quite a while before I do any more & that's for sure! I'm sure making a "real" version wouldn't take as many hours, in fact days, as this took!
Anyway, this is the extravagant chocolate & soft fruit wedding cake that started it all! I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out & the photos just don't do it justice..one of these days I'm going to learn how to work my camera properly!! :-))





I'm not too sure that I'd like to have all that fresh fruit on my wedding cake but the chocolate flakes & dark chocolate shavings would definitely go down well!

"Only the crumbliest Flake is Chocolate". Lin your cake is amazing and I'd definitely eat a slice if it was real. xxx

Oh YUM!! Love the texture of the crumbly chocolate flakes! I tried to make a cake like that years ago and it took me forever as I made individual chocolate flakes, too too time consuming and thought there must be a simpler and easier way to get that look! You have found it, but sounds like it still took some time :p) Kate xx
