It’s safe to say that his hunt is over! This chocolate on chocolate groom’s cake was adorned with hand sculpted shotgun shells (in the wedding color), chocolate dipped strawberries*, fondant “leather” loops, and a fondant disc bearing the grooms cattle brand.
*Because this cake was for a very good friend’s wedding, a surprise for her groom, I wanted to make sure and make it perfect for her. Strawberries were out-of-season and I couldn’t attend the wedding which was three hours away….this cake traveled with the maid-of-honor on the night before the wedding. Since we didn’t want the strawberries to weep before time for service, we opted for realistic foam strawberries to dip so that I could arrange them before sending the cake.
