I have been privileged to have made a number of wedding cakes over the past year. And I have met some inspirational couples who have specific ideas of the theme behind their weddings. I thoroughly enjoy being part of their ‘big day’.
As a cake decorator I ensure that I deliver all my cakes to the venues to prevent any accidents. The other reason is so that I can be nosey and see some truly spectacular wedding venues.
This September I attended my first wedding exhibition in the Greater Manchester area. After building up my wedding cake portfolio and creating several dummy cakes, I’ve decided that it’s time to sign-up to a few wedding exhibitions in my target areas.
To be honest I was quite nervous when I initially booked a stall. However, I soon began planning how I wanted my display to look and how many wedding cake designs I wanted to create.
It’s been a glorious week filled with sunshine and wedding cakes, as well as a number of celebration cakes. These included a Superman chest, a Trash Pack dustbin, and a Las Vegas themed birthday cake.
This weeks wedding cakes included a three tier wedding cake in a lilac and Cadbury’s purple theme. Clusters of edible roses and a large draped satin bow adorning the side of the cake. This cake was set up high on a baby pink milk glass stand at the stunning venue at The White Hart, Lydgate.
It’s been another busy week here at Candy’s Cupcakes HQ. Have a read at what I’ve been up to this week.
I have been fortunate enough to work with the Hazelnut Bakery over the past few months making a number of wedding cakes. This week I made a stunning vintage style wedding cake designed by Hazel that incorporated roses, beads and ruffles. I thoroughly enjoyed making this cake along with 75 heart shaped cake pops wrapped in cellophane and tied with lace. The bride and groom each had a cupcake to set them apart from their guests. The cake was set up at the most stunning location I have been to yet, The Saddleworth Hotel. Set in a grand hall with shiny black granite floors and ornate wooden walls the cake took centre place.
