Cake for A Bride & Groom

I had a fun and hectic week. This pass weekend's nuptial celebration was for a couple that came from Switzerland with a small entourage of friends and family to celebrate their union in Kuching.

A close family friend gifted a cake to the couple, the bride being my cousin.

Figures are made from fondant. The groom is fashioned after Wallace (of Wallace and Gromit) and the bride's hair is in the style she wore on the actual day of her nuptials. Details are handpainted.

The side of the cake is decorated in lace work made from fondant, accentuated with shimmer dust. Flowers are gumpaste.

For the groom, I wanted to avoid the blah-ness of a black suit and made a green striped version with a pink bow tie.

The couple had a rather tight schedule of appointments leading to the big day - hairdressers, tailors, food sampling, decor approval, family dinners, photographer's appointments, final fittings, church rehearsal, decorations, seating arrangements, gift/favour distribution, singing rehearsals, duty delegation and last minute changes all in a matter of 5 days *phew*

Congratulations Claire and Nicolas, it was great to be part of your wedding.

These are just terrific. Any tips on how/where to learn more about fondant sculpting? I would like to improve on making the actual shapes, getting them to stick together without drooping/breaking off, and avoiding the fondant drying out and cracking.
