Elaine wanted a simple cake in very particular colours to celebrate her daughter and son-in-law’s 30th wedding anniversary. Inside was a vanilla and peach coloured marble cake, split with buttercream, to remind them of the peach coloured dresses their bridesmaids wore. The red writing and decorations allude to their first dance – Lady in Red. Congratulations.
Kate’s parents celebrated their golden wedding last month. She particularly wanted a simple elegant cake that featured the lily of the valley and stephanotis flowers that her mother carried 50 years ago. So I have made the sugar bouquet and tiny white flowers around the sides to echo the broderie anglais of the bridesmaid’s dresses. I added a sugar bow and a sprinkle of shimmer powder to finish it off. Congratulations Gill and Stuart.
Anne and Jack are travelling to the Lake District to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their family. Anne carried a bouquet of yellow roses on her wedding day (as did I actually) so this fresh lemon curd filled lemon cake has a sugar version of the same. Congratulations both of you, have a wonderful time with your family
Simple lemon Madeira cake filled with homemade lemon curd was under the sugar gerberas and celebratory bunting.
Florence and Michael were celebrating 40 years of marriage with a weekend of celebrations with their friends. We went for a rich fruit cake decorated with ruby roses, an edible photo of their wedding day in 1978 and sugar ‘snapshots’ of their lives here on the South Coast and in Tenerife. Happy anniversary to you both.
Rachel’s parents in law, Ian and Anne were renewing their wedding vows 50 years after they first made them. The service was to be followed by a party for all their friends and relations- all 75 of them. So, she asked for a big Madeira cake decorated with golden roses and three tiers seemed the best way to go about it. Congratulations Ian and Anne, Happy anniversary to you both.
I found out that Ian and Anne had the cake ‘piped in’ and they sent a picture of their grandson doing the honours.
Joyce and Colin have been married sixty years and are having a party for family and friends to celebrate. I decorated this rich fruit cake in ice blue and white with a handful of sugar diamonds. Congratulations to you both.
Ben and Charlotte had a lovely pre-wedding party in the surroundings of a stunning Tudor mansion. This pretty summer cake had four tiers of carrot cake, chocolate fudge cake, madeira cake and fruit cake decorated with sugar roses and little blue butterflies. Very many congratulations to a delightful young couple.
Freda’s grand daughter was getting married. Freda had baked the cake but wanted some help with the icing and sugar flowers.
