Do you sell this cake? No, just for fun

Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: The groom was a film journalist; the bride worked for the Royal Shakespeare Company......plus they wanted to reflect the fact that they live in Oxford near to the actual lamppost which inspired C S Lewis when writing 'The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe'. I managed to combine these aspects by making a popcorn bucket for the groom to hold while the bride held a skull aloft!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be disheartened! It takes trial and error to finally create reasonable figures, but once you've got the idea, it's easy!

Lovely!! Really excellent and precise detailing, especially te lampost. Shame the picture's a bit fuzzy as I would love to see the bride's dress in detail. Got any close-ups?
