Touches of Colour!

The week following Easter was a special one indeed!
Starting on the Friday I headed over  to Eagle Farm Racecourse to set up this wedding cupcake tower.
Pale pink and Mid pink icing with simple cachous decorations. 

Held at the Racecourse itself- I was pleasantly surprised- the room was STUNNING! Warm and full of character- and exquisitely decorated too! A large Lolly Buffet and the most brilliant floor sticker- featuring the couples names and a monogram- I have ever seen!
Saturday was a LONG day of deliveries- with only one cake collected ( and taken to Toowoomba) I had a full day of transporting cakes ahead of me

I headed first to Victoria Park to set up this Variation of my Chocolate Twigs design. The Flowers were provided by Wedding Essence.   

After Vic Park I ventured over to Hillstone to Deliver this 4 tier beauty.  


Iced in a Cornflower blue (to match in with the Bridesmaids Dresses) a different pattern on each tier- and then a cartoon Bride and groom topper for the top.   


Complete with a stethoscope and soccer ball !
This cake weighed a tonne! The base tier  featured a Damask pattern- the third tier had criss crossing ribbons- piped icing pearls on the second- and then the top tier  quilted.

After Hillstone it was over to Virginia Palms where I had this two tier pillared cake.  

The top tier had piped monogram initials- as well as outline hearts.

I had my first ever Delivery to GOMA- The gallery of Modern Art. This place has stunning views- and awesome preferred caterers- but- it is a little difficult when it comes to delivering a cake. 45 minutes- between getting security checked waiting for someone to escort us to the holding area ( I couldn't actually set up the cake as it was an outside venue and it was a hot day) then being re-escorted out again. This style of cake I normally set up entirely ( i.e. cut roses and do all placements onsite) however a gut feeling told me perhaps I should just do it before I leave then simply stack the tiers once there- and I am so glad I did. I was able to demonstrate to the Caterers how the cake was to be stacked and then it was up to them to reassemble the cake once they were ready to set the table. This worried me a little- as this entire cake was organised via email- and having never met the Bride and Groom I felt added obligation to personally place the cake.

Here's hoping the caterers replaced the cake like this:

These roses were just stunning- a mixture of Sweet Avalanche an Perfume De Grand roses- Stunning!!!
I also really liked the black ribbon edge boards between the layers- to me they added an element of class too!

This cake is one I have done many times- but through sheer magic have managed to (well I think anyway) capture a cool shot of the cake. I will make a cake photog out of myself one day LOL!!!

This three tier cake was for the Polo Club- and looked great as you came up the grand staircase.

Last but not least was a cake for Alchemy Restaurant in the Riverside Centre! Beautiful Restaurant- gorgeous white cake- what more could a newly married couple want? 

I ran into the stunning Karen from Bliss floral too! She was getting all of the center pieces ready- fresh as can be!

Well that was it for the second week in April- I am still behind with my blog- but if you want to get the heads up check out my facebook group- which is updated with my latest cakes each week!
Thanks for reading
