View Full Version : Fishing themed wedding cake

I suppose this would be the forum to make this post, I figure I'd rather post it here than have it moved here.

Recently my sister steph and her partner darren got married. Congratulations to you both!

As fishing was something that members of both families enjoyed, that was the theme decided for the cake.

My old man has been in the baking profession for many years, and although he doesn't make wedding cakes for a living currently, he's still a dab hand at baking and decorating one.

The bottom layer is a chocolate mud cake, the top layer is a more tradtional fruitcake.

As well as baking both layers, he did all the icing and the placement of the decorations. It went down a treat on the day too.

I love it! As someone who has just popped the question and is now begining to watch the missus to be make plans, I'll have to show her that for sure. Just a question; what size leader and braid and are the barbs on the hook crushed?!?!

The leader was about 10-12lb and the hooks had the barb crushed for ease of release on the wedding night...;) ;D

Nice thread!

We just got past our 35th year and instead of coral we both figured we be happy to get probation.;D

Good on you guys and all the best for the future, all you have to do to make it work is agree to disagree.:-*

A couple of shots of our wedding cake. The cake was made by a friend who did a great job of transporting it up from Melbourne to Brisbane on the plane that morning in one piece. The writing down the bottom reads "Congratulations on Hooking Up".
