Surprise Wedding Shower Cake

My weekend was full of surprise parties and cake, what a weekend! This cake was made for one of my best friends. She's getting married in July to one of the sweetest guys I know so her mom and the bridal party threw her a surprise wedding shower.

This cake was very fun to make but very difficult and frustrating. The wedding colour is persimmon which I thought would be an easy colour to match...NOPE!! I looked on-line at colour swatches and every single one was different, some more orange some more red. The swatch I remember seeing was a reddish colour with organge undertones so I finally decided to use two variations of what I thought the colour persimmon looked like.

The top tier is a 4" chocolate cake with two tortes of chocolate chip cookie dough filling and a torte of vanilla buttercream. The second tier is a 6" vanilla cake with two tortes of chcolate buttercream and a torte of vanilla. The bottom tier is the same as the 6" top tier.

The flowers are made from fondant, imprinted and finished off with a small edible pearl.
