Spring into it!

It seems that Spring had well and truly sprung this year. The first weekend in September is a notoriously popular wedding weekend. This year I had brides a few steps ahead of the rest- with late weekday weddings- even before the weekend had hit.
The first cake was sent over to South Stradbroke Island- Couran Cove.
A two tier Mad Hatter- complete with personalised bride and groom... and their gorgeous Black Labrador too!   

A purple colour theme was carried throughout the wedding- including the cake too.
A stripe pattern for the base and a outline flower pattern for the top- a few sugar orchids dotted across the design too.  

On the Friday I sent cakes up to Maleny- and also a cake for Sirromet.
Sandee from Always Fabulous Flowers- was setting up her fabulous wedding arrangements in the Barrel Hall as I arrived- Just magnificent.
The couple had chosen a two tier double barrel design- with pearl finish bow and sugar ribbons.
 I also delivered a cake for a Wedding in a Church hall on the Friday- Beautifully set up and Decorated by Styled Events.  

A quaint rendered church in the Woolowin area- dressed beautifully for a stylish wedding indeed.
A no fuss cake- keeping it classic and simple.

Saturday had me running all over town delivering cakes- Once again I got to work with the vivacious and uber talented Glenda from Glenda Pradella Flowers.
I am seriously blessed to come into contact with some wonderful wedding suppliers week in week out.
True professionals who LOVE what they do.
Glenda was kind enough to arrange the flowers down the front of the cake for me.  

Luscious Cymbidium Orchids- roses and Foliage- complete with Dark chocolate "twigs"- yummo!

The next cake was definitely Spring Fresh.
Soft Vanilla Butter cream icing- with White seasonal blooms clustered over the design.
A combination of Roses and Spray roses- mixed with Tulips and freesias- just divine.

It was a warm spring day- a touch of wind- just perfect indeed.
This cake was delivered to a Waterfront reception venue at New Farm- a lovely location- with fresh river breezes.

After New Farm it was over to the Marriott.
This cake had an extended height base tier- with single middle and top tiers.
Sugar roses- with a late (after photo) addition of crystals in between- and delicate "bling" buckle detail on each tier.

Pretty and elegant rolled into one.

It was off to a quick start with Spring- and has been full steam ahead ever since.
Thanks for reading
