Return of the Wedding Cake

Remember the wedding cake I did last November? Well, my sister and brother-in-law's first anniversary is coming up and I promised them I would recreate the top tier of their wedding cake. There's that whole tradition of saving the top of the wedding cake in your freezer to eat on your anniversary, but gross. Year-old cake? Not that I don't have older things in my freezer, but I probably won't end up actually eating any of them.

So, tonight I made a fresh batch of the raspberry-blackberry curd. Last night I did chocolate rose leaves. We'll see if the flowers from last Sunday's farmer's market can make it until the weekend. I'm being extra-careful with them. Thursday I'll bake the cakes, mix up the ganache frosting, and assemble.
