Verity and Simon's Elegant Ivory Cake

On Saturday 4th of September Verity and Simon were married at Llandaff Cathedral followed by a reception at St Davids Hotel in Cardiff Bay. I had such a great time working with Verity to design her cake! Verity knew from the outset that she wanted something simple and elegant, incorporating the sage green / ivory colour palate which they had chosen to run throughout their day. Using intricate loose romantic hand moulded sugar roses to accent the separate tiers, the cake was structured along simple lines with tiny piped royal icing beadwork to add texture (apologies for the quality of the images, the cake was delivered the evening before the wedding and so the photographs were not taken using natural light).

Verity and Simon chose a base tier of hot toddy fruit cake with the two remaining tiers comprised of Madagascan vanilla sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and raspberry compote. There were a few guests with gluten and dairy intolerances for whom we made special individual fruit cakes:

Many thanks to Verity and Simon! I hope you are having a truly fantastic time on your fabulous honeymoon! Wishing you both every happiness and a wonderful future together!
