White Chocolate Wedding Cake

Today we delivered a white chocolate wedding cake to Simpsons restaurant in Birmingham. My clients were getting married today and celebrating then staying at this fabulous restaurant - and it's only down the road from us, how lucky are we?....

The cake is a two tier vanilla sponge covered in white chocolate ganache then wrapped in a 'band' of white chocolate and decorated with red petals and fresh strawberries and raspberries

I love the shine of the chocolate on this one...

A picture of me with the cake and all the mess I created while adding the petals and fruit - I thought this task wouldn't take long but it did!

One wedding and two baptisms...

This weekend I created some cakes for my friend, Barbara (or Baz to those who knew her at university!) She was getting married to her partner David but the day was going to be a joint celebration with their daughter's Anna and Iris who were baptised just after the wedding service. I was commissioned to make the wedding cake plus a cake for each of the girls. The wedding cake was two tier (fruit and chocolate mud) and covered in ivory icing then piped with flowers and stems to replicate the pattern on the wedding dress.
Anna requested butterflies for her cake so we went for a white, pink, lilac and yellow theme.

Iris loves the colour blue so her desire was for a blue frog! So we agreed on a green cake with a yellow lily pad and flowers with a great blue frog perched in the middle!

Here are some shots of the wedding and the cakes at the venue:

This is the beautiful church in Sutton Bassett where the service took place (and that's me and my friend Rachael outside!!)
Baz and David - newlywed!

And finally the cakes!

Hornton Grange Wedding

We delivered the Black and Ivory wedding cake to Hornton Grange at the University of Birmingham yesterday - it's a lovely venue set in the leafy suburb of Edgbaston.

A few finishing touches to the cake!

Dave took the photograph below - I think it's a really cute shot!
