W IS FOR WEDDING CAKES
Under ‘Cakes & Bakes’, W is a no-brainer, especially as wedding season is now upon us.
My husband describes me as a ‘wedding nutter’. It’s not my preferred introduction; I must say, but perhaps our other halves know us better than we know ourselves… Hmmm, still not sure about the nutter bit (natch).
I do like a good wedding, though. And of course, that includes the wedding cake.
Most of the time, I’m creating cakes for people I’ve never met before. It’s therefore a huge privilege to be able to do a cake for a friend, and I had that very opportunity last week.
You may have seen on Facebook or Twitter the progress of the cake.
It began like this:
plain wedding cake
In other words, an ordinary ivory 3 tier wedding cake.
decorated wedding cake
Yep – the woodland has arrived, complete with sugar apples and edible butterflies.
To say the bride and groom were happy is rather an understatement, which was a huge relief to me (hey, no-one wants to disappoint a couple on their wedding day!).
