Gillian and Jay's Little Tiffany Box cakes

The lovely Gillian and Jay were married in London a few weeks ago. On Saturday they held a celebratory dinner at the wonderful Llangoed Hall in the Brecon Beacons. Gillian's engagement ring was purchased from Tiffany's and she wanted her celebratory cake to be comprised of elegant little Tiffany boxes, one for each of her guests.

Gillian and Jay chose a classic Madagascan vanilla sponge filled with raspberry compote and vanilla buttercream for the cakes. These little sponge cubes nestled inside sugar boxes built out of hand coloured (to get that exact beautiful blue/green Tiffany's hue) stiffened sugarpaste. The white sugar ribbons and bows were brushed with pearl shimmer to mimic the satin sheen of Tiffany ribbon.

Many many thanks to Gillian and Jay, the new Mr and Mrs Krause! wishing you both every future happiness!


  1. I had this lovely message from Gillian:

    'Dear Hannah,
    I want to thank you for doing such a wonderful job on my wedding celebration cakes. They were just how I imagined them - absolutely spot on. Everyone who saw them fell in love with them! I hear you have just become engaged too - congratulations. All the best with your wedding - I'm sure it will be perfect. Best wishes Gilly Krause (nee Rhys'

  2. I thought at first they are real gift boxes until I saw the transparent white box and realized that the blue box is actually the cake! Awesome.
