We have another sneak preview for you, this fabulous wedding cake created for the equally lovely Michelle over the Halloween weekend.
She wanted a cake that reflected their choice of wedding date, without being too dark or morbid, nor covered in pumpkins. Her email last week shows we got the balance just right.
“Hi Jennie, Thanks for the lovely wedding cake, it went down a storm — just the right combination of classic wedding cake and victorian gothic”
Thanks Michelle, glad you liked it!
The interior of this cake was one layer of chocolate & raspberry, with the top tier in fruitcake. We will be adding this design to our wedding cake gallery hopefully this weekend.
Kristian & Mark chose this delicious chocolate wedding cake for their Civil Partnership ceremony on the 6th November, customising it with the mixture of white and milk chocolate maltesers on the top, and the chocolate roses around the base.
Three flavours for this cake, Chocolate with white chocolate ganache, Carrot cake with orange creamcheese filling, and Coffee cake with coffee buttercream, each tier consists of 4 layers of cake with a layer of filling in between, creating a gorgeous effect when the cake is cut, particularly when the cake and filling are different colours. This is especially effective for the chocolate cake with white chocolate ganache, and I will be posting pictures of a cut cake soon.
Over the same weekend, we also created a variation on our Croquembouche Wedding Cake for Lucy and Tom. They chose to decorate their profiterole wedding cake with pink and cream sugar rosebuds, and had each profiterole filled with whipped cream.
Some of our customers have asked about this traditionally french wedding cake, as they have not seen these before. A Croquembouche (sometimes called a croqenbouche) is a tower of cream filled profiteroles, that would traditionally be cut by being hit with a sword. Our version is chocolate covered and can be served with tongs (or your fingers if you prefer) — we can even provide a chocolate sauce for serving
