5 Tier Fantasy Wedding cake

Recently we made a gorgeous Fantasy wedding cake for a beautiful wedding at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
The cake was 5 tiers of alternating flavors chocolate & red velvet and it was covered head to toe with hand made White Gumpaste flowers.
We made oodles of Magnolia flowers in different sizes, sweet peas, Peonies, Roses, Rose buds, Hydrageas and leaves.
It all looked amazing at our cake studio but nothing compared to how it looked on stage in the ballroom.
Heres a shot of me after we did a test run on how we were goĆ­ng to transport this giant beauty.
What you see here is only a fraction of all the flowers used. We had to continue putting more flowers on at the venue. 
 When we arrived our team of people stacked each tier slowly, steadily and quickly...Slowly because of the flowers, steadily because of the flowers then at the end quickly because the cakes were so heavy our muscles were about to burst:)
 After stacking we added more and more and more and did I say MORE flowers. Piece by piece it started to look UHMAZE!!!
After puting all the flowers I couldn't wait to see our Giant Beauty:) It was exactly how I imaged it. 
And you know what the best part is, this cake was a total surprise for the bride. 
The bride really wanted this exact cake. But the bride thought that they were going to have a simple wedding cake which was fine with her. The groom then planned this Wedding cake extravaganza. 
Eeeek I"m jumping outta my seat I luv surprises. 
And can we say the groom gets TRIPLE bonus points for his wedding cake surprise!!!!
So here's how the cake looked before delivery.
Tada!!! Here's how it looked after we added more flowers and jazzed it up

You'll luv the video:)
