Lizzie and John's Blue Butterfly Cake

Lizzie and John where married on Friday on the most beautiful sunny spring day at the King Arthur Hotel in Reynoldston on the Gower Peninuslar. They both liked the Butterfly design which they had seen on the iced website and so we tailored the design to fit with their pale blue colour scheme. We also made one or two other changes to the design: we added a slight pearlescence to the blue fondant icing, piped royal icing detailing on to the little butterflies, used a cluster of white roses interspersed with butterflies on the top of the cake and added a little bow at the centre of the top tier. Lovely!

Lizzie and John had a number of guests who are gluten intollerant and so we made the top tier of the cake a gluten free 'jaffa' cake (sumptuous belgian chocolate cake filled with orange buttercream), the remaining two tiers were lemon drizzle cake filled with vanilla buttercream and scrumptious homemade lemon curd.

Lizzie and John are such a lovely couple and they were fabulous to work with. We send them all of our best wishes for a lovely happy future!

  1. Hi Hannah,

    Thank you so much for our beautiful cake! It set the room off perfectly and we had so many comments about how gorgeous it was (especially the pearlescent icing!). We managed to try a bit of both tiers and both were scrumptious - every last bit was eaten :) Some of our loveliest wedding pictures are of the cake. You were so lovely to work with, we would have no hesitation at all recommending you or coming to you for cookies or cakes for other occasions!

    Best wishes,

    Lizzie & John
