The first wedding cake is a personal favourite of mine... it was a designed based on our logo! We had made a similar cake last year for the bridal shows we attend, and this couple fell in love with the design, though they had different colours in mind!
They also requested a rough and rustic wooden looking base which was loads of fun to create in fondant!
The second wedding cake I have for you today is one that was booked well over a year ago, and based very strongly on a design by Colette Peters. Pure elegance!
Even the vase was hand made of gumpaste and filled with flowers in delicate shades of ivory. This was a time consuming design; from the fine piping at the top to the large stencilled bottom, but well worth the effort!
I love the progression from lime to soft yellow within the bubbles on each tier; it's a subtle effect but really quite lovely!
As is often the case, I designed the base while working on the rest of the cake; many couples love to be surprised with that little detail, and inspiration often strikes once I am mid-way through putting the elements of the cake together.
