Last weekend, I had the busiest few days of Caked so far!
With three weddings in one weekend, it was definitely a test of my stamina. Wedding season is truly underway.
What I loved most about last weekend was the variety of the cakes - each one was completely different, and that's what I love most about my job.
Friday's cake was a beautiful 3 tier semi-naked cake decorated with fresh gypsophila (one of my favourite fresh flowers for cakes!). A hand-made sugar topper in the shape of the Chinese Double Happiness symbol sat on top surrounding by the delicate fluffy blooms. All tiers were vanilla sponge with different flavour fillings - coffee, raspberry and pistachio - with their different colours glimpsing through the buttercream slightly.
Congratulations to the happy couple Mark & Ting on their wedding day at Morden Hall!
Saturday's cake was a peach fondant-covered 3 tier cake decorated with gorgeous fresh flowers. Each tier was dusted with a light sheen and finished with decorative piping and pretty bow ribbons. Flowers provided by Lalage Barren Flowers.
Congratulations to Emilia & Toby on their wedding day at Ognisko Restaurant, Knightsbridge!
The weekend culminated in the biggest cake of all - a 7 tier showstopper decorated with all the places the happy couple have travelled to in their time together, all made in sugar of course. Their dream was to have a tall narrow cake, and that's certainly what they got! With details such as the Eiffel Tower, Moulin Rouge, Statue of Liberty, Ayers Rock, the Rocky Mountains and their cute dogs, this was such a fun cake to make!
And to add to the wow factor, the inside was rainbow sponge!
To add to their travel theme even further, they had adorable biscuit favours decorated as suitcases complete with travel tags of their honeymoon destination - Key West. I loved these!
Congratulations to Paul & Vidas who were married at Kensington Roof Gardens amongst the flamingos!
Huge congratulations to all my couples from last weekend!
