Wedding dress inspired wedding cake

This cake is the first of my new collection for two wedding fayres in September. I am so grateful to Sara at CourtHouse Cake Company who created such an easy to follow ruffles tutorial on Cakesdecor.

I wasn’t meant to be posting any of them until the collection was finished, but just couldn’t resist!

Lion and Prairie Dog Afternoon Tea Wedding Cake

This cake has been a real challenge but I am so pleased with the finished result. 

My client and her partner are marrying this Saturday in The Woodland Hall at Westonbirt Aboretum and I am reliably informed that they are affectionately referred to as a prairie dog and a lion by family members.  Therefore, my remit was to produce a cake reflecting these characters and also to set the scene around an afternoon tea party.

The bottom cake is a 12" chocolate truffle with a chocolate ganache buttercream.  The upper tier is a lusciously sticky lemon cake with a lemon curd buttercream.

I hope they like it as much as I do!

Slings and Wedding Fayres!

WOW, managed to finish this week's cake even with one arm in a sling! Hopefully I can get my injection next week and normal services can be resumed.

On a more up beat note I can now confirm that I will be exhibiting at Old Down Manor on Wednesday 5th September and also at Thornbury Golf Club (date in September to be confirmed). Sooo.... excited!

 If you are getting married in the next couple of years please come along and check out the standard of my work close up and try some tasty samples.

Looking forward to putting some faces to names xx

Cosmos Daisy and Hydrangea 90th Birthday Cake

This is my final offering at the end of what feels like a very long week!  My spinal injection can't come soon enough.  Why is it that the part of cake designing that I enjoy the most is that which causes me the most discomfort?  Never mind, good excuse for a nice back tickle later!

The lady that ordered the cake, Jackie found my number through Yellow pages which is quite reassuring to know, as there are so many entries these days.  The brief she gave me was floral, lilac/lavender, and no roses.  Just in time, my order arrived from The States with all my new cutters (can't wait to try out the magnolia) and I decided to go the cosmos daisy which in nature is found in the requisite colour.
As I mentioned yesterday, I have found the heat and humidity rather challenging and while binding my individual filler flowers several of them broke, resulting in me having to make a fresh batch.  Thank goodness I took the Jacqueline Butler flower making course and can now make them in my sleep!

Next week I am going to working on a wedding cake for a photo shoot with Thornbury Golf Club and also a Golden wedding anniversary cake.  Can't wait to get going....

Peony Golden Wedding Anniversary Cake

This cake is very simple but I love it.  Now I've got my spray gun out I don't want to put it away!

The cake is for a couple celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary (not sure I'm going to be making too many of these in years to come)!

I had a hell of a time covering it because it was coated with chocolate buttercream rather than ganache for speed and with the heat of my kitchen things didn't go to plan.  however, I got there in the end and I am so pleased with the finished cake.

Canadian Moose 21st Birthday Cake

This cake was made for a good friend of mine whose stepdaughter will soon be leaving for Canada, and shortly before her 21st birthday.

Claire and her family have had several cakes from me and are always quite happy for me to suggest ideas to them.

As it was going to be a carved cake I suggested a chocolate truffle cake, and as I also have two other cakes on this week it will keep for a few days in advance.  The antlers were shaped from a cake pop mix.

The most testing part of the cake was actually taking the photos.  No matter which angle I used I couldn't convey the enormity of the cake and also just how good the cake actually is (big headed I know, but sometimes you are allowed to be).

Have a very happy birthday Holly and bon voyage!
