Greek Island Wedding

My friend got married in Greece recently and for the party back home in Birmingham she asked me if I could make her this cake. She showed me a picture of what she was after and having visited Santorini on holiday last year I was excited to produce a cake that could represent the beautiful colours of the water and wonderful contrasting colours of the white Greek buildings with their little blue topped churches.

 

I am really pleased with the result, although I must say that the way the cake was laid out at the venue, with all the cupcakes surrounding the main cake, was actually the idea of my friend Deb. My husband also suggested it represented a large Greek island with the cupcakes acting as all the smaller outlying islands… err ok!
