Herlien and Mark's wedding day

Ansie and I drove through to Morgenhof  wine estate before 8 o'clock this morning.  Ansie baked the wedding cake and it had to be assembled.  She did a fantastic job...and it was truly death by chocolate cake.  Here is some pics of the "anatomy of a wedding cake":)

Cherry liquer icing between the layers...yum!

Dark chocolate ganache spread all over.

Dark chocolate sticks around the cake.

Beautiful fresh roses on the top layer.The view from above...the way nobody saw it:)

The beautiful, yummy completed sis is good hey?

The cake took 2 hours to assemble and then we rushed off to Somerset West to shower and get ready for the wedding.
