Andrew & Sally Eberhard’s wedding cake

She said yes, apparently. 😉 Sarah & I made this wedding cake for our dear friends Andrew & Sally:

It’s 3 layers of solid chocolate mud cake. Covered in layers of chocolate icing. The chocolate decorations are moulding chocolate piped in a zig-zag pattern, then stuck to the sides with more chocolate. It feeds over 100 people and there was plenty to spare after the wedding.
