Here it is in all it's glory. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It is truly a fussy, overwrought Louis XIV style cake that I think captures the look and feel I was going for. It received the ultimate compliment when a former chef's said it was exactly the style of cake that Carême himself would have created. Look him up, can't really be in better company.
The grade. Well, even though I thought it was pretty close to perfect it received 245 out of 250, not bad for the second wedding cake I've ever made. Here's the rest of the class (click on it for a closer look).
