Lovely on-trend marble fondant effect. And as usual I added a bit of my own touch to it by adding a tier spacer with a silver finish, and hand painting in silver accents in the marble fondant effect.

The next challenge was how to create it to that it could travel. Confirming with the team that it would go up by camera crew trucks (this gave me a bit more peace of mind!) I ensured it had a tall centre dowel, each tier doweled well, and then boxed up in 2 boxes with a step by step instructions sheet for onsite. 

So the top tier was in one box, and the bottom tier with the spacer in the second box.

The cake arrived safe and sound and the team did a fabulous job of styling this simple design on site!
