Livorno - Chocolate Wedding Cakes by Zucchero Patisserie. As featured on BBC2's The Great British Wedding Cake. Four tiers wrapped in Amedei Toscano white chocolate, decorated with milk chocolate fans. The top tier is finished with a pure chocolate, hand-made, entirely edible, sculpture. Individual desserts surround the base of the cake - all destined for the top table.
I spend an awful lot of time scouring the internet for tutorials so that I can learn new techniques and I came across a tutorial yesterday for homemade modelling chocolate, so thought I would give it a whirl – I have never worked with modelling.
