Seriously- it is April already- 2011 is 1/3 way through :)
The Last week in February was a fabulous eclectic mix of cakes once again.
I had the pleasure of Making Casey and Catherine's Engagement cake.I always relish the opportunity to make a couples engagement- as quite often I don't get the chance to help out. Usually engagement cakes have such short lead times that I am unable to fit a cake into my already full schedule :(
So when I do get the chance I LOVE it to pieces!
The Fabulous Sharon ( the couples Mum/MIL) came and organised the cake for the newly engaged couple. To say she was just lovely is an understatement. So happy, vibrant and enthusiastic to make the celebration as joyful as possible.
As Casey and Catherine had Cherry blossom invitations- we carried that theme through to the top tier of a cupcake tower.
Keeping the rest of the cupcakes simple and pretty!
I was lucky enough to have not one but Two engagement cakes for that weekend.
The next was a PINK Mad hatter!
It was all about Love with this colour scheme :)
The fun cakes didn't stop here though.
I had a three tier Luggage stack wedding cake.
Keeping the cake predominantly neutral- with a hint of the wedding colour in the tags.
Karen from Bliss Floral- provided a gorgeous topper of mini gerberas and roses to finish the cake off.
Just this week I received a beautiful thank you email from Collen and Dave:
Somewhat late but just wanted to drop a note to say thank you very much for the cake you made for our wedding day - almost traditional in style but with a fun twist!. You did a great job and it reflected us perfectly. It has got lots of positive comments both on the day and when people see the photos.
Colleen & Dave"
So very lovely to hear back from my clients!
I also had another client in common with Karen.
Michelle and Damien were married on the last Friday in February.
They chose a three tier cake with a heart piping detail on the middle tier.
They had sourced a silver intertwining heart cake topper to match in with the piping detail.
After having ALL of my display cakes destroyed in the January rainy weather- I began replacing some of them.
Trying to replace 15 or so display cakes is a very time consuming process. With regular orders taking priority- it seems to be a LONG process getting to replacing them.
With a Photo shoot and open day at The Landing coming up- it never hurts to have a deadline to set things in motion :)
I took a twist on my popular Mummy cake- reinventing a three tier Extended height design that once graced the shelves.
Sadly though this cake was melted (again!!!) in the rain last week- seriously- if electricity wasn't so expensive I would air condition my consult room in a heart beat- and given that the space in my cake storage room is limited at the best of times- the display cakes take a back seat when it comes to keeping them temperature controlled.
I also redid the black and ivory spot cake- replacing the flat bow with a tied black bow.
This too has since succumbed to the damp weather- and is awaiting replacement.... bring on winter and the cool dry weather :)
Lastly I made a Cupcake tower for the Landing's open evening.
Latte is such a hot colour at the moment- so I made Vanilla Latte cupcakes with a gorgeous white blossom-
topped off with a Latte coloured fondant top tier- and personalised couple!
This cupcake tower held 30 cupcakes- put together with the top tier and you have a fabulous display for an intimate wedding!
Well- the next blog will be all about March- some sensational cakes to share with you all soon!
