Sian and Chris' wedding

Sian and Chris' wedding took place at Celtic Manor a week last Saturday. Sian had spotted a design that she loved for her cake - three tiers separated by pillars, each tier vertically piped with royal icing and the gaps filled with white flowers. She asked Alison Bentley, her florist, to decorate the cake which we provided. The base tier of the cake was a retro fruit cake with glace cherries and walnuts soaked in brandy, the middle tier a lemon drizzle cake filled with swirled vanilla buttercream and fresh and zesty lemon curd, and the top tier was a Madagascan vanilla cake filled with vanilla buttercream.

Chris' grandmother was unable to attend the wedding and so Sian and Chris asked me to make her a miniature boxed version of their cake. They also asked me to make an individual fruit cake to a special recipe for one of Chris' and Sian's guests who has a dairy intolerance.
Sian and Chris also decided to have cookie favours to match the design of their cake and to bring in the cobalt blue which was featured in the wedding flowers and bridesmaids dresses. The cookies looked lovely and added a splash of colour to the place settings:
Many thanks to Sian and Chris for making the design process such a lovely experience!
