Glitter and Gold!

Today, I experienced my first ever delivery from hell! I had to deliver a five tiered wedding cake to a place where the reception hall was up two glights of winding stairs. The cake must of weighed 100 pounds, and there was nobody at the venue to hold the door open. Needless to say, the cake almost went splat! On the upside, I am really happy with the outcome:

The cake was alternating round and petal shaped tiers. All tiers were red velvet filled with vanilla buttercream and were covered in ivory whitechocolate fondant. Each tier was wrapped in a gold ribbon, and gold bows and ribbons were draped from each round tier. There is a trail of golden gumpaste butterflies going from the bottom towards the top tier. The monogram is royal icing that was painted gold to match the color scheme. The topper is 2 dozen or so hand made gumpaste roses that were sprayed in the same gold shimmer as the butterflies. A few butterflies also sit on the roses:
