This weekend it was the wedding of my favourite Uncle…Stuart or ‘Stu’ as I prefer to call him! His daughter and one of my best friends (and cousins) gave me a shout to ask if I would make the wedding cake for this happy event and I couldn’t have been more honoured. The only restrictions I was given were that the wedding ‘theme’ colours would be glittering gold and a deep chocolate brown (both of which I love!). I decided to create a 3 Tiered Brooklyn Blackout Chocolate Cake covered in fondant icing and then finished with beautiful golden cascading flowers, ribbons and elegant piping detail. I hope you like this as much as I do and it offers you inspiration…
P.S I have taken pics in both natural and artificial light and have decided to showcase a few of each as the cake really takes on a different ‘persona’ as it were dependent on the light, see what you think!
It seems appropriate during this post that I also introduce to you my new God-Daughter Lacey-Rose, who was born on Saturday 14th of December to the aforementioned Best Friend and cousin Kelly and her husband Mikey. I am already dreaming up Christening Cake plans and only the best will do for my God Daughter!
