I had the honour and pleasure of making a cake for a student's friend this week. The bride is Russian and the groom is Welsh and they wanted a Russian doll and Welsh dragon as toppers on their cake! It was a very unusual combination but I think it came together very nicely in the end.
My friend, Jin, a very talented cake decorator, made the dragon and helped cover the cake as well. Check out how elaborate the details are on the dragon! Amazing work! I hand-painted the Russian doll from a picture that they gave to me. I was really pleased with the results.
They were very happy with the cake. It had to travel all the way to the Bay of Islands so I hope it made it ok! Here's to the happy couple. May they be blessed with lots of love and good wishes on their special day! :)
