Leanne and Jamie's Clambering Rose Wedding Cake

On Saturday Leanne and Jamie were married at Llansantffraed Court in Monmouthshire. Their marquee was decorated with pretty pink and blue bunting and beautiful candelabra centerpieces. Leanne was looking for a cake which was simple, elegant but with unusual detailing. Her beautiful dress, Cabaret by Ian Stewart had a fabulous asymetric rouched flower detailing on the shoulder and concealed in the skirts of the dress, so I designed a cake which incorporated the style of the dress using hand-moulded open sugar flowers and piped royal icing beadwork to create the effect. Leanne's bridesmaids wore dresses in dusky pink and so we carried this colour through with the ribbon bands which encircled each tier.

Leanne and Jamie chose to have three tiers of scrumptious fruit cake. The base tier was a hot toddy fruit cake, the middle tier a chocolate cherry fruitcake and the top tier a tutti fruiti fruit cake (with apricots and ginger). Delicious!

This cake was an absolute joy to work on, many thanks to Leanne and Jamie! I hope you both had a truly wonderful day! Sending you both all my best wishes for the future!
