Charlotte and Warren's Elegant Cupcakes and Summery Cookies

Last Friday Charlotte and Warren were married at the beautiful Mellington Hall in Powys. Charlotte's lovely parent's collected the cupcakes and cookies on the Thursday to take to the hotel so I'm afraid I do not have photographs of the cakes set up in situ but I did take some of my own photographs before they were collected.

Charlotte and Warren planned their wedding with a romantic, summer garden feel in mind. They wanted a cupcake cake which exuded informal elegance and sophisticated romance. After their tasting Charlotte and Warren chose cupcakes in two different flavours: vanilla cupcakes filled with fresh seedless raspberry compote and frosted with vanilla buttercream frosting and Belgian chocolate cupcakes filled with fresh cherry compote and topped with white chocolate buttercream. The vanilla cupcakes were decorated with three tiny hand moulded sugar buds and the chocolate cupcakes loose, romantic hand moulded sugar roses and leaves. The top tier was a chocolate fruit cake decorated with loose, hand moulded sugar roses and leaves and piped with tiny white royal icing dots, tied with two different types of white organza ribbon and finished with a diamante and pearl button:

Charlotte also asked me to make summery daisy cookies, which were served to the guests on platters with a glass of bubbly after the ceremony. We made three different sized cookies in three flavours: vanilla, zesty lemon and zesty orange, the cookies were then hand piped with yellow, lemon and white royal icing and decorated with a little bit of sparkle:

Charlotte also asked me to make special vanilla cookies for the littlest guests Toby and Olly:

Thank you to Charlotte and her mother for being so lovely and making the design process such fun! Wishing Charlotte and Warren every happiness for their future lives together!
