Leyla and Cam

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Leyla and Cam at my November Tasting Day last year.

They were so relaxed!

I was asked to create a delicious and moist cake that all of the guests would love!

No problem!

I cannot tell you how excited I was to see the stunning images of their wedding by International photographer – Gemma Clarke.

My ever so popular rustic buttercream design with hessian and twine suited the venue and couple perfectly!

Leyla and Cam chose a divine selection of flavours for their cake.
The bottom tier was chocolate and orange cake.
The middle tier was Carrot Cake.
The top tier was Zesty Orange Cake.

Pete and Sarah

Pete and Sarah came to me with an image of a hand crafted timber piece that they had bought  for their wedding on a recent trip to Tasmania.

It was the perfect rustic cake stand for their wedding cake!

And so, we set about creating a ‘timber inspired’ cake design with a very personal touch!

Gibraltar Hotel - S&P-720

The entire cake is etched by hand in buttercream to create rustic timber textures.

It was a new technique,and something I made up along the way, but I do love a challenge!

The stunning florals in autumn tones were by Jennie of Merci Bouquet .

Gibraltar Hotel - S&P-722

The finishing touch to this rustic design just has to be Pete and Sarah’s initials etched within a love heart – so much fun!

Gibraltar Hotel - S&P-723

All of the guests were treated to a variety of cake flavours.

The bottom tier was lemon with vanilla buttercream.

The middle tier was coconut with vanilla buttercream.

The top tier was white chocolate truffle cake with vanilla buttercream.

There was also an extra cutting cake in lemon.

Gibraltar Hotel - S&P-721

Here is a beautiful image of Pete and Sarah on their special day.

I was of course extremely chuffed to receive their special thank you.

Thank you - Alison

Wishing Pete and Sarah every happiness!

Melanie

Working with Melanie was extra special.

After discussing a few key design elements, I asked Melanie if she would like to send me a picture of her wedding dress as inspiration for the cake design.

Once I saw the photos….I knew this was where we were heading with the cake!

I completed a couple of sketches and Melanie decided on this one, with a couple of small changes.

And here is what we ended up with!

The Bottom tier was  Raspberry and Hazelnut with dark chocolate ganache
The middle tier was Lemon with white chocolate ganache
The top tier was Chocolate Mud with dark chocolate ganache.

All of the iced flowers and rose petals were hand made and replicas of those sewn onto the skirt of Melanie’s stunning wedding dress.
