This wedding cake includes replicas of ancient monuments including the Colosseum, the Parthenon, and the Lighthouse of Alexandria. The bottom two tiers were frosted with smooth buttercream frosting then decorated with modeling chocolate and piped chocolate decorations. The top tier was made of gingerbread cookies and royal icing.
Parthenon Cake Tier
The edible columns were made from Pirouettes dipped in ombre tones of chocolate.
The smooth finish on this Parthenon cake replica was made from white and yellow marbled modeling chocolate.
