My friend Adi asked us to her wedding and I also got the priviledge of making her wedding cakes. They had a mix of carrot cakes and chocolate cakes and they were woodland themed to go along with the slight squirrel theme of the wedding. Another display of shabby chic/retro cake table which looked lovely with all her flea market tea cups and tea pots.
Adi kept to her Portuguese roots by continuing the tradition of linking arms to eat a cake each. Two little squirrel bride and groom sit on top of the chocolate top cake.
This is the lovely Sian and James who came to see us a couple of of months ago for lunch. Sian and I used to work together and she’s asked me to have a go at making her a wedding taster box. She’s having a wonderfully 50s inspired ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’ wedding which is so classic and stylish. I had a go at a few designs and she took the cakes away to think over what she preferred the best.
It was a lovely box to do and Sian gave me lots of inspiration to think about as well as doing some research myself. I think the simplest bows work best although I think they might have to be thinner and more delicate. The single black strap with a diamonte clasp was a favourite but of couse the diamonte isn’t edible! I did buy some edible diamonds and used them but I didn’t think they were very successful.
Hopefully I’ll find out in the next few weeks whether she’d like me to make her cakes and which designs she selects. Very exciting!
