Wedding Cake and Weight Lifting Groom's Cake

I have been decorating cakes for a long time. Probably 99.9% of them have smooth icing and all of the wedding cakes I have made had some kind of topper. The young lady who ordered this cake wanted it textured with nothing on the top. I used buttercream icing with fondant flowers. It was exactly what she wanted and she loved the finished product. 

The groom owns his own gym, so the bride wanted to surprise him with a fishing & weight set groom's cake. She wanted it to be chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream. She wanted an Olympic weight set & something to do with fishing.

 I used fondant to make the weight set and the fish. Then I painted them with food coloring. The bride was very impressed with the finished product. 

The cakes were for an outdoor wedding and once I got there to set up it was so hot they didn't want any food outside until right before serving time. That just means I don't have a nice picture of the cake table.
