On the 23rd of July Louise Zagozda was married at Glyn ar Afon Hotel in Usk. She asked me to design her a wedding cake which was romantic and traditional but with a fresh edge. She wanted to keep to a white colour palate but with a splash of pink to tie in with her wedding colours. The cake was covered in white sugarpaste and decorated with a descending pattern of trailing piped royal icing flowers and leaves:
The cake was four tiers, each with a different flavour. Louise chose a base tier of hot toddy fruit cake, and the remaining tiers of sumptuous belgian chocolate cake filled with white chocolate buttercream, carrot cake filled with cinnamon cream cheese frosting and lemon cake filled with lemon curd and vanilla buttercream.
Just lovely! Many many congratuations to you both!
Sian chose a base tier of hot toddy fruit cake and remaining tiers of Jaffa (sumptuous belgian chocolate cake with orange buttercream filling), Lemon cake filled with homemade lemon curd and vanilla buttercream and madagascan vanilla cake filled with homemade raspberry compote and white chocolate buttercream.
I enjoyed every minute of making this cake, thanks so much to Sian for allowing me free reign! Wishing you every possible happinness for the future!
As always I sketched a few different designs and this is the one they chose!:
sugarpastes. The middle tier with the black birds on a wire reverses the layers of colour with the two birds in tandem flight (representing Kitt and Marco) in the lime green to give a pop of colour.
Kitt and Marco chose tiers of triple layered Strawberry Sundae cake (strawberry cake layered with vanilla buttercream) and of course Red Velvet with white chocolate cream cheese frosting for extra decadence!
The cake was placed at the centre of a dessert buffet which was comprised of cakes and sweet treats made by guests at the wedding. Lovely! Kitt and Marco have now embarked upon a new adventure living in Texas! Good luck and much happiness to you both!
Cerys' mum Elin asked me to make some pretty pink butterfly cookies for Cerys' naming celebration on the 7th of May. The cookies were tied up in polythene bags and finished off with pink ribbon and given to all of the guests as they left the party!
