Pretty in pink

Earlier this year I was contacted by a lovely lady who had seen iced's cupcakes at a friends wedding and wanted us to make her cake for her wedding at Homewood Park located just outside Bath.   It was an absolute pleasure working with Zoe and Mark to design their cake.  They picked four different flavoured cupcakes: sumptuous chocolate (moist belgian chocolate cake with white chocolate buttercream), ginger lemon (ginger cake with zesty lemon buttercream frosting) vanilla vanilla and carrot cake, which were decorated with handmade sugar roses, butterflies, daisy clusters and gerberas.  The top tier cake was a lemon drizzle cake sandwiched with lemon buttercream.  
We kept to a colour palate of white and varying shades of pink to match the wedding flowers and bridesmaid's dresses.  The couple also decided to order iced cookies for their wedding favours.  We made rugby ball shaped chocolate cookies for the men with a hint of cobalt blue to match their neckties, four mini heart shaped vanilla cookies in different shades of pink for the ladies and special sparkly vanilla teddybear cookies for the little guests.  Zoe hand wrote tags for each cookie with the guest's name on the front and a personal message on the reverse which was a lovely personal touch.    
Many thanks also to Zoe's wedding planner, Julie from The Wedding Genie who ensured the whole set up process was fantastically smooth!
