This is a beautiful wedding cake I made for a friend of a friend. The wedding was at Noosa and the cake had beautiful fresh roses as its decoration.
Prepare cakes in advance. The fruit cake is for the top tier and can be made 1 month in advance. The chocolate mud cakes are best made in the week leading up to the wedding, say 3 days before.
Trim the mud cake for the bottom tier and fill any gaps. Secure in centre of cake board with some royal icing and brush with a sugar syrup all over. Roll out the plastic icing according to the instructions given on the pack. Cover the cake and trim the excess. Roll out the plastic icing for the top of the cake. Brush the surface of the cake already covered with sugar syrup. Using a sharp knife cut to shape of box lid.
Ice the other two teirs in the same way. Leave for at least 48 hours before assembling with pillars.
Mark the position of the pillars for the first and second tiers. Push a wooden skewer into the cake, place the pillar over the skewer, mark the top of the pillar on the skewer and then cut off to make even. Do this for each of four skewers on bottom tier then do the same for the second tier. Secure ribbon trim at base of cake on each tier.
If traveling to a wedding reception venue, do not assemble until in situ. Transport the three cakes unassembled. When at venue, position the bottom tier on the cake table and then decorate with the fresh roses. Each rose should have its lower stem cut and bound with florists’ tape. Place the second tier on top of the first and position the roses on this tier. Finally place on the top tier and arrange the fresh roses on it.
Leave the roses in a bucket of water until the last possible minute before cutting taping and assembly of the cake. This will ensure the roses look their freshest.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
