Ifan Morgan and Karolina's Beautiful Berry Wedding Cake and Cookies

Ifan and Karolina were married today with the reception at the lovely Miskin Manor Hotel! Their wedding was planned along the lines of a beautiful romantic country garden party and they definitely wanted their cake to reflect this. Karolina's bridesmaids wore beautiful pale spruce green dresses which Ifan and Karolina wanted to incorporate into the design of the cake. I mixed the colour of the sugarpaste to match the beautiful green colour and then once the cake was assembled brushed it with pearlescence to give the cake a lovely glimmering sheen. The tiers were then decorated with an abundance of hand moulded white sugar flowers, green leaves and berries in a very loose, relaxed formation. I love this Birdseye view of the cake from above with all the lovely berry colours coming through:

The cake was comprised of three tiers of zesty lemon drizzle cake, filled with scrumptious zingy lemon curd and vanilla buttercream frosting, and one tier of zesty lemon drizzle cake filled with lovely lime curd and vanilla buttercream frosting.

Ifan and Karolina also asked me to make lemon cookie favours for their guests using the same pale spruce green colour. Each guest's name was piped on their cookie so that they could double up as place names! Perfect!

I've absolutely loved making Ifan and Karolina's cake and cookies! They have been absolutely lovely to work with! Wishing them a truly fabulous day full of fun and happiness and all of our best wishes for the future!
