This is the first “cake” post and I’m excited to share it with all of you.
On the side, I take orders to make custom cakes for basically any occasion.
My love of cake decoration started in my teenage years, I used to make cakes for all my family and friends and is now slowly growing into a side business.
I recently made this simple and elegant wedding cake for a young couple.
Initially the order was just going to be the sugar figures, but it soon changed into ordering a whole custom cake, a surprise for the lovely couple from the mother of the bride!
It was a delicious white chocolate cake, complete with white chocolate buttercream and fondant. The ‘love’ and swirls on the side of the cake are hand painted with edible silver paint and the Bride, Groom and their little dog are all sculpted from gum paste (also edible). The Bride & Groom are also dressed in miniature versions of their original wedding attire. The ‘best day ever’ sign was provided by the mother of the bride.
I love custom designing cakes, every order is different and presents a new challenge for me.
