Wafer Paper Rose Wedding Cake

One morning I was woken up by a call from New York.  The bride apologized that it might be too late but hoping that I can make her wedding cake for her and that I am highly recommended by her close friend.  Flattered and flustered at the same time as I had planned to go somewhere on her wedding week just as well I took the order and postponed the trip.  Oh yes...the wedding was in Penang.

She wanted something like the Wafer Paper Peony Wedding Cake but with roses shades of pink.  We added my all time favorite lace pattern with genuine Swarovski crystals studded on in and a string of faux pearls to finish the ensemble.  I used wafer paper for all roses, freesia and foliage.  I have yet to master the art of making hydrangeas look natural with wafer paper so still resort to sugar paste....but will soon!!!! Hahaha.
