The each layer of the cake was soaked with a different  flavoring and different coating. Each layer was also pre-frosted with a butter cream frosting. Pastry cream was used in two of the cake layers. As raspberry sauce or apricot jam was used on the other two layers. Every layer was soaked with a liquor spiked simple syrup with a different liquor in each cake layer. Then as each layer was added the fondant was rolled out and placed on top. Each fondant covering, except chocolate, was covered with a special pearl dust hand rubbed into the fondant. After assembly a wedding cake topper was placed on the cake.
