Beautiful Buttercream & Gold Wedding Cake

I love it when clients share photos of their wedding day with me!

Ste & Aimee's wedding day was back in August, and I couldn't resist sharing their cake in all its glory. This was one of my favourite cakes of this year, and the moody backdrop of St Bart's Brewery in Farringdon added a whole new dimension. The flowers, the buttercream, the gold...such a gorgeous cake to work on.

Their cake was made up of two tiers of white chocolate sponge with white chocolate & raspberry buttercream and one tier of chocolate mud cake with white chocolate & oreo crush buttercream.

The stunning flowers were provided by Ladybird Flowers and the beautiful photographs were by Alexander Newton Photography, links at the bottom of this post.

I was also excited to create a tower of doughnuts for Ste & Aimee, as the groom specifically loves them!

The cake table and doughnuts were beautifully styled by the St Bart's Brewery team.

Blush & Gold Wedding

I love creating beautiful cakes for weddings, but it’s even more special when I get to attend the wedding as a guest as well.

On Friday I went to the wedding of Davina and Luke, and was privileged to design and make their cake. Their wedding was at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, a stunning setting with beautiful views.

I’d worked closely with the bride to make sure she had her dream cake. I was briefed on blush with touches of gold, with peonies and roses. She was also keen to get details of the lace of her dress included (and with an Alice Temperley dress, why wouldn’t you?). We decided on a blush pink bottom tier with gold flecks, a shorter gold tier, and two white tiers, one with piped lace detail. The entire cake was topped with a posy of the palest pink roses and an open peony.

The cake itself was a fruit cake for the couple to keep, lemon cake, and chocolate salted caramel, which were served as dessert with fruit.

I even made their favours – lemon flower cookies decorated with fondant and royal icing.

The cake looked right at home in the stately room of Pembroke Lodge, and the whole day was truly beautiful.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
