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