Kerry and Nigel's Art Deco Wedding Cake

Kerry and Nigel married on the 27th of December at the lovely Marriott St Pierre in Chepstow. Taking place in the late afternoon, the reception was filled with candles and sparkling shimmering elegance.  The couple's wedding stationery was based on a beautiful art deco theme and we decided to carry this through to the cake design.  I researched art deco patterns and fell in love with the simplicity and elegance of one in particular, when I sent the designs to Kerry and Nigel I was so pleased that they chose the same one! We decided that the pattern should be piped around the top edge of each of the three tiers with silver royal icing (in keeping with the main colour of the wedding), when the pattern dried I then brushed the design with sparkle using a tiny brush so the pattern would shimmer in the candlelight of the reception.  


Thank you Kerry for making the design process such fun!  Wishing you both every happiness for the future!
