Wedding cake week

Yes. I'm doing a cake this week. Luckily, it is a separated cake and it should be pretty easy to transport. The bride has asked for a "theme" of cakes. Her flowers are dafodils and I am going to using the white and yellow on the cake along with the bottom tier in chocolate.

For the chocolate instead of making a chocolate buttercream, I've decided to go with Chokylit's recipe for the whipped ganache. It should make it a rich chocolate flavor and still be easy to pipe. The design on the cake is a diamond with pearls at the points.

The white cakes with be in that same look, sort of , one with diamond pattern, the other with a basket weave ala dafodils. The top tier is basket weaved also. I am looking forward to doing the cake, she be a fun week. A bit of inspiration:
