Chandelier wedding cake

In the evening of 9 March 2014 I received a call from a potential client wanting a wedding cake.  It was past 5pm and I had company so was debating whether to go meet up with this client immediately (my cake shop is not too far from my house) or fix an appointment for a later date.  Curiosity got the better part of me so I decided to meet with her that evening.  This meeting proved to be a turning point in my cake career :)!.  The request was for a 5 tiers upside down chandelier cake!!! My excitement knew no bounds, this was a first here in Ghana and also for me! :).  That evening and the next few nights I could hardly sleep from anticipation of the wedding date and it remained so for some days till gradually it all settled in. I designed the cake stand and internal structure and supervised it's construction and come 26 July 2014, all our dreams came to fruition and everybody involved was satisfied.  The cake was a HUGE hit as intended and the bridal party was full of praise for my work.  Am greatly humbled and thankful to God Almighty for this breakthrough.
