Sabrina & Lars' Wedding

My latest cake was really a lot of fun not only to create but to deliver and put together. This couple was one of the friendliest couples I have met. Not only are the bride and groom wonderful but their parents are great also!
Both families are into dirt bike riding and when Lars mentioned he wanted a grooms cake, I jumped on the chance to create something fun. Why not roost Sabrina's beautiful blinged out wedding cake with a knobby tire completely made out of edible materials. The tire was a chocolate cake with raspberry buttercream, the knobbys were nuggets of chocolate. The entire cake was covered in chocolate fondant airbrushed black. The spokes were made out of a hollow spaghetti and the sprocket & brake was a hardened sugar paste.

This cake was delivered to Hartley Botanica. and as always, the reception looked amazing, thanks to Jennifer at Belle of the Ball Designs

Here's the work in progress! Jennifer is having a great time hamming it up for the camera, threatening to eat the chocolate nuggets we used for the knobbies.

That is amazing- if you don't mind me asking- what is in the center of the tire cake holding it up?

I used a pastry ring to hold up the cake, but everything else is edible including the hub and spokes.
Thanks for commenting :)
