Gothic Wedding – Take Two

If you have been looking through my cakes, and think this one looks a little familiar, then you would be correct.  Several years ago, for my first wedding fair I made a gothic cake dummy, which I used for a few years before it suffered serious damage to three of the four tiers during transit 

Chalkboard

One of four dummy cakes which I made for 2018 wedding fairs.  This one combines three different ideas which are trending at the moment. The chalkboard is made with a black icing, with hand-painted writing and a dusting of white powder food colour. The bottom tier, is a duck egg blue, with a same coloured 

Beads & Ruffles

One of four dummy cakes made for 2018 wedding fairs. This is a 5 tier cake which is intended to show several ideas which can be used in wedding cakes – it is also showing a non-traditional option of only having a 1″ different between sizes of tiers, where the norm is 2″.  If you 

Square with Roses

One of four dummy cakes made for 2018 wedding fairs. This one came about because I had made a customer’s wedding cake (heart shaped with roses) and got a bit carried away making roses!  Not wanting to waste the leftover flowers, and loving the customer’s chosen colours so much,  I thought it would make an 

Orchids & Gold

One of four dummy cakes made for 2018 wedding fairs.  This is a design which combines several different ideas that I had liked.  The orchid was made from rice/wafer paper, using a tutorial from Paul Bradford, a well know “name” in cake decoration.  I’d seen the tutorial some time ago and saved it for future

A tale of four tiers, and three flavours!  Chocolate, vanilla and lemon sponge tiers for the main cake, plus chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and also more chocolate cake in the form of a separate cutting cake to cater for all the guests.  A lovely couple, who had a fantastic venue dressed up beautifully complete with 

“Merry” Matrimony!

A wedding cake with a definite sense of humour!  The slightly “worse for wear” bride and groom toppers were supplied by the customer, but had to be kept secret until the day.  They were made to order with accurate dress details and as per tradition the groom, who came to collect the cake, hadn’t seen 

Hearts & Roses

My first heart-shaped cake but with a popular theme of cascading roses.  Pink and navy blue to match the colour theme of the wedding.  Another beautiful venue and a fantastic day weather-wise for their outdoor wedding in a wonderful setting.  The finishing touch of a lily on top which had special meaning for the bride. 

Lace & Roses

A more traditional look to this wedding cake, but with detail around the base of the tiers using an edible lace product.  To add a little extra detail on the sides of the cake I used a template with royal icing.  There were roses on each corner and a sparkly silver ribbon finished off the
