Although it's sort of Autumn now (unpredictable British weather), it was a lovely sunny day, and yesterday we had the pleasure of delivering one of our luxury wedding cakes to a lovely couple who held their wedding reception at the Gaynes Park venue in Essex. The wedding colours were ivory and lilac, and the couple wanted a simple yet elegant ivory cake with a touch of lilac.
Wedding Taster Box
After fun tasting session, the couple opted for the Rich Fruit Cake and a Lemon Touch sponge. Included in the sample box was our Vanilla Bean Sponge, Lemon Touch, Divine Chocolate sponge and Rich Fruit Cake. The bottom 2 tiers and the top tier of the cake were Rich Fruit Cake and the second was the Lemon Touch sponge.
For the detailed finish, we used ivory satin ribbon, and hand piped tiny beads at the base of each tier. The second tier was decorated with simple hand piped beads. We incorporated the lilac colour by adding a cluster of handmade fondant roses on the top of the cake and pearl beads. A sprinkle of Jewel Twinkle White edible glitter added a little eye catching sparkle to the finished detail.
