Not a problem nowadays, is it. Nowadays cakes are usually sponges (lemon or chocolate are popular) with buttercream filling and fondant (bought icing) so really not the marathon job that the old cakes used to be. Even the flowers are relatively easy with modern moulds and cutters.
If you were nearby I'd offer to help with those - Good Luck!

And cake boards held up with dowels , don't forget them if it is more than one tier! And oyu can buy special rolling pins that press designs into fondant too so the surface looks like lace piping. I got mine from Lakeland but I guess Amazon will have similar things

Love to see photos when it's finished please

And congratulations to the family   :D :D :D

They were more than thrilled, apparently the bride cried when she first saw it

Thanks for the info , they want 3 tiers for 50 to 60 people so i said i would do 2 fruit and 1 sponge for those who dont like fruit , theirs coloure are navy grey and red  but a burgundy wine type red .
there is a rather good xcake decorating shop not far so im popping up there later with the daughter who is making their invites , they live near saulsburyso it will be a hike to get the cake there.

Elderflower and Lemon is one of our favourites too  :D

I think its a real challenge for you, not least of all the travelling,  and I am sure you must be feeling very flattered to be asked, and I am sure you must be happy that your Son is remarrying after such sadness. 
You  do realise that we shall all expect a slice as well  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
I went to a wedding once, and the couple didn't like cake, and so it was a very large 2 tier pork pie.  How original is that !.  Good Luck, Mrs Bouquet
