Here comes the bride............

Cheesy tittle I know! But for the second time in 3 weeks- and only the 4th time EVER!! I have seen one of my brides on their wedding day!
I was at the Marriott Delivering this three tier chocolate creation- when I saw the Beautiful Alicia having her photos done with her gorgeous Bridesmaids!

I get really excited when I get to see my clients dressed in all their wedding glory! It really gives me goosebumps- and makes me feel really happy!

I had had a huge day of delivering on Saturday- so seeing Alicia- and her giving me the Thumbs up for the cake really made my day! I truly hope Alicia and Phil had a Magical wedding day. Not only was seeing Alicia a real highlight of my week- a cake flavour especially created for her and Phil's wedding has become a winner. Phil is a fan of Apple- so I created a White chocolate Apple and Cinnamon Mudcake for their wedding. To make sure all was good- I made a trial cake and gave it as samples to my clients during the week- and it was a hit! Already I have orders of this flavour- YUM!The cakes tiers "floated on 1" pillars. Each cake had a solid chocolate collar- which had a pink swirl (matching in with the Bridesmaids)- then random pea sized cachous were across the design.

Last week was not only a huge week for cakes- But it was also my 5th Wedding anniversary on the 6th March. I shared my wedding anniversary with 3 of my couples. The first of which was Peta and Craig- who had their wedding over on Stradbroke Island. Craig came and collected the cake earlier in the week and took it over to the Island. The cake was a twisted three tier chocolate creation- with marbled chocolate chards and scrolls.

The cake came together with the finishing touches of fresh orchids provided by Jennine from Florabella. The picture is one kindly sen to me from Jennine- Thank you! The lovely Anne Campbell was the celebrant for the occasion- and with both Jennine and Anne on sight- I am sure it was a fun day.

My other 2 couples who now share my wedding anniversary date both had cupcakes.
Peta and Chris were married out at Glengariff- with this pink funky cupcake design.

The cupcakes- each turned onto its side- for something a little different- matched the pink heart theme throughout the room. The new chairs at Glengariff look fabulous too!

Then after Glengariff- it was off to Hillstone- where I set up this romantic and fresh design. With each cupcake simply topped with a fresh orchid or spray rose- it was sweet and elegant, and matched in with the white room.

I hope Michelle and Craig have a fabulous honeymoon in New York- lucky buggers!

After a long day on Friday- I got to celebrate my own anniversary- with some surprise bling from my fabulous husband Steve- Thanks I love you heaps- even though I didn't get the puppy ;) LOL!

Saturday had me running all over Brisbane delivering cakes- and it was another hot day.

My first stop was at the Medina- where we ran into our Brother in Laws brother- Aaron- who works on the front desk- (did you keep up with that?) and put together this soft iced cake.

Stunning fresh antique roses by Melita from Wedding stems, and a cute couple to top things off.

Then it was off to City Hall- with the Golden Darling design. After wandering the halls of City hall trying to find someone to open the room ( seriously- when you call ahead- and they meet you at the loading dock and record where you are off too- why isn't the room then opened?) anyway- after finding someone with a key- the cake was placed ready for the reception that night.

The hand painted mid tier has a real opulent feel about it, with the piping detail and loop bow adding an element of whimsical fun.

The next cake made me want to eat the icing so bad!

A whipped dark chocolate ganache- with baby pink spray roses- pretty for sure.

My biggest cake for the week was this four tier present box design.
Each "lid" had its own pattern, with some Swarovski crystals incorporated inti the design too. The bow and ribbon were painted with a pearl effect- to have a satin look about them.

I really love this cake, and loved that the cake fit the size of the reception. I love big cakes for big receptions!

The last of the weddings had me making a cheeky design for sure.

The groom didn't quote make it to bed, and had fallen asleep at the base of the bed.
Clothes and other articles strewn across the design- including a mini 2 tier wedding cake- with a big slice out of it.

If you have kept reading- this is the last cake for the week!
A tower of mini cupcakes in a polka dot theme for a Christening. This cake was for my old neighbours niece. Some of the cakes had a polka dot bow- and others just had dots.

Riley Ann was christened last Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous time.

So last week was MASSIVE for me- but I made it- and had fun doing it!
Thanks for reading all the way to the end.. til next week!

Beautiful cakes as usual! I can't decide which I like best, but the pink swirls is really pretty.

Are you willing to share your white chocolate apple cinnamon mudcake recipe?

I'm not brave enough to come up with my own recipe yet, maybe someday.
