This cake has extended tiers 10” 8” and 6” round that are all 5.5” tall, the cake stood approximately 18” tall. Sarah found this particular design on the internet and asked me to recreate it with the addition of personalised bride and groom toppers. This size serves approximately 140 coffee portions. The black and white beading is hand piped royal icing. The topper is fresh roses supplied by the florist.
What a relief it was to finally complete this cake! I’m very happy with it and I think the bride and groom will be too, hopefully? Having the figurines sitting on the side of the cake instead of the top created a few challenges that I wasn’t expecting. I have made so many bride and groom figurine toppers that go on top of the cake, but never for the side of the cake. When I create the bride and groom figurines I have a little routine going where I do certain steps in a certain order. Usually the bride’s hair is done last but I couldn’t do this because she is sitting against the cake and I couldn’t get behind her to work on hair. When the figurines are on top you can get to them from all angles. Also, I usually start my figurines well in advance of making the cake and I place them onto a styrofoam block to work on them. I did this but failed to measure how much room they would need when placed onto the cake, woops! A few adjustments and all is good, but all of this creates extra time spent on the cake. I will know this for next time though. We learn from our mistakes!
Sarah: I don’t really know where to start!!! I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you!! Our cake was amazing in every way!!!
Everyone said how good it not only looked, but tasted too! Actually, the event coordinator at the Willows said it was one of the best that she had seen, and by far the best she'd ever eaten. She may be in contact with you!
The toppers were so good!! So close to us!!! Just amazing!
So glad we chose you!! We have so much left (yay!!!)
Sarah and Liam’s wedding reception was held at the Willows in StKilda. It is a beautiful old historic mansion and is a very popular wedding venue.
Sarah: We chose the Willows as it’s not the typical 'reception' venue. It’s different. Having 3 separate rooms, plus the gardens, gets people up out of their chairs and enjoying the night.. We didn’t want a 'boring' wedding, that people couldn’t wait to leave! And once it was all done, we got exactly what we wanted! :)
Our cake... Simple. Who doesn't love mud cake? We ended up deciding on all 3 layers Mars Bar mud because that’s what we love! Our cake was definitely one of the highlights of the entire wedding! Wouldn't have trusted anyone but you :)
Aww thank you Sarah and Liam, such a pleasure to be a part of your special day :)
