Possum 1

The Bride Gave Us Her Approval !!

Every now and again we will have a groom approach us and order his own groom’s cake and sugar art for the wedding. In this particular instance we decided to ask the bride for her permission before we proceeded …. I think you can see why!

This groom wanted Roadkill Possum for his groom’s cake. We’re not kidding !!!! With the bride on-side we made the cake out of bright red colored raspberry red velvet cake and layered it with raspberry truffle filling, chocolate creamcheese and chocolate buttercream layers. Yes, we even put veins inside  ….. again … the bride said we could ;-) So that it was evident the possum was roadkill we placed tire tracks, made out of fondant, on either side of the possum cake.

Only in Tennessee.
