I guess 'the' engagement celebration of each of my children will be with a "stump" cake! We were able to celebrate together with Rachel's parents and sister a week and a half after the official proposal. These first three pictures were taken by Rachel's sister Caitlyn Warner - an amazing photographer!!

David asked for a triple chocolate cake with triple chocolate frosting and the filling is rich chocolate gnache.
The flowers are gumpaste
|We even made the roots of the tree come out.|
I love making wooden planks and trees and any kind of wooden objects. This was simply put on with tip 789 then dragging a knife over it to make the bark look more natural and gnarled.
