Themes and Traditions

Well this certainly has been yet another big week!
To start things off- I had yet another gorgeous four tier cake.
Fitting in with the couples Chocolate and Baby Pink theme, this four tier beauty was simply that. Each tier features a double banding of ribbon- in the theme colours- with sugar roses and lilies in pinks, dotted across the design. Having created this design for a couple who reside overseas- it was a delight to finally meet them when they arrived to collect their cake.This cake, was then transported to beautiful Noosa- where the couple held their reception.

With a real international feel for this week- I also had a traditional German Marzipan cake to make. The base layer of this cake was a white chocolate and Boysenberry Marzipan cake. Tis cake is made with Almonds and Marzipan beaten through the mixture. Knowing how much the groom loved his Marzipan, I placed a layer of freshly made marzipan through the center of the cake too. Topped off with white chocolate covered marzipan truffles ( that my wonderful mother covered for me- didn't she do a magnificent job!!)- this cake was a marzipan lovers delight. Until you try freshly made marzipan- you will never appreciate how great (and non-manufactured) it can taste.

Lastly this design was created for my husbands cousin's engagement. With a Blue black and white theme, this deign took on a life of its own. Mixing styles and techniques- created this fun design with a touch of class. White sugar roses, combined with wired hearts and a striped overlay- bring this cake together. Congratulations Julie and Tim!

This coming week is one I have been waiting for! My very good friends are getting married on Saturday! So I will have a another big 5 tier design for you all to see!
I am also creating a cake for a fantastic wedding planner I met when I had first started "Cake That!" who has given me great support over the years!
Wish me luck!
