Wedding Cakes

I was asked to make a wedding card for a friend who was going to a wedding in Prague.It was to be Scottish themed as the groom was Scottish.I decided that instead of making a traditional card,I'd make a little keepsake. The template was from UKScrappers by a very talented lady and cut on my Craft Robo. I've made this little 3d wedding cake before as a trial,but this time it was for real and to give to someone on their special day.I assembled the cake and decorated it with tartan ribbon (can't remember which tartan),two little silver rings intertwined,some thistles on the top and a bunch of heather and a thistle down the side.
I then made up the box and lined with acetate.I then decorated round the bottom with more tartan ribbon.I cut out a few tags and decorated with tartan paper. On one I put the couples names and date of wedding.On another I added a wedding verse and also added another for my
friend to write a personal message on.I added another little bunch of heather/thistles and added a gorgeous silver button with a thistle on it.All tied at the top with some tartan ribbon.

The couple really loved it thank goodness. My friend had taken it into her work beforehand and one of her workmates asked if I'd make one for her too as she was going to be bridesmaid at a wedding. This one was to have red tartan instead.So I made another similar one but used the red tartan (Stewart I think......) I had run out of little silver rings so used two entwined wedding bells instead (thank goodness for cake decoration shops!) Sorry about the not so good picture of this one,as I forgot to take a pic before I handed it over,so was done on a mobile phone.

Talking of cake decoration shops.One of them I went into in Glasgow (Top Tier) wanted me to take in samples of them to sell in their shops. I decided against it as I think I'd soon get fed up making loads of them.

Thanks for looking
