Kirsten and Gethin's Lovely Lilac Wedding Cake

Last Saturday the lovely Kirsten and Gethin were married at the stylish Holm House Hotel in Penarth. Holm House is a beautiful design-focused boutique hotel which has an enviable position overlooking the sea. The wedding breakfast was held in the dining room at Holm House which is adorned with shimmering flock wallpaper from Osborne and Little in lilacs and darker plum purples. I designed the cake in a very pale lilac to complement the decor of the room and decorated it with piped white royal icing beadwork in an abstract feathered design. The cake was then topped with hand moulded loose romantic sugar roses!

Kirsten and Gethin chose moist chocolate fruit cake for the base tier of their cake with the remaining tiers Madagascan vanilla cake filled with raspberry compote and vanilla buttercream. Kirsten's father has a gluten intolerance so we made him special little gluten free versions of the main cake:

Many thanks to Kirsten and Gethin for being so lovely to work with. Wishing them all the best for a very happy future together!
