Sunny Days!

A whole other season ago- way back in Autumn- when the days were warmer and much sunnier skies were seen- I made some pretty wicked cakes- for some equally wicked clients.

So to start this entry off- I will showcase the first Sun inspired design.
A three tier variation of my chocolate mountain cake.
Decorated with sugar Frangipanis - this cake looked the epitome of summer!

Then there was the next Gluten free two tier chocolate creation- with fresh ripe strawberries mmmmmmm delish!

I had some pretty big tall cakes to do that week. I actually think I love the look and finish of the three tier extended height cakes. Grand without being ostentatious.
The first one was headed for Sirromet. The poor Bride had been unwell earlier in the week- but pulled up trumps for her big day.

Simple and elegant this cake was too tall to capture in my photo tent neatly LOL!
So here is a picture of the cake with the top part cut off.

And now in all its glory!

My husband likes to call Tortured Willow "good sticks" and in this case "good wedding sticks" LOL! I must thank the lovely Karen from Bliss Floral for giving me the willow- she is always so very kind and lovely- Thank you Karen- you are a gem and all your kindness never goes forgotten :)

The Willow with sugar Singapore orchids mimicked the table centerpieces of willow with fresh orchids.

If you want to see more piccies form this wedding- head on over to the uber talented (and a personal favourite photog of mine) Toni Snell's Blog to see the pictorial blog of Aleasha and Matt's day!

The next big cake of the weekend was for one beautiful bride indeed. One of the loveliest brides I have met- and her mum was simply adorable. Both glowing with excitement about the wedding- it was certainly a highlight of my year so far!
The cake itself was finished in a pearl silver- with stencil detail and crystals.
So very pretty and elegant. The cake was topped with a Crystal topper- handmade by Ana and her mum. The reception was held at Topiaries at Samford. The room set up was just magical!

So from Elegant to a few cakes with a bit of fun :)
The first was a variation of my Fresh bride design- complete with a set of personalised toppers- perched on top of the second tier.

Sweet avalanche roses across the cake and covering the top looked so pretty!

The next cake was all about love!
Intertwining heart covered each tier of this cake.

The stylish black and white designs are certainly very fashionable at the moment.

The last cakes for the weekend had me headed to the Summit.
A three tier variation of my Amanda's Desire design- but this time with fresh roses.

A last minute request by the Bride for a tower of cupcakes to compliment her dessert table was added to the order only days out from the wedding. I love to help out when I can and in this instance it was possible indeed.

I put some tiny spray roses in amongst the tower to match in with the wedding cake.

Well that rounds off March.
I am super excited to get more blogs out- now that wedding season has calmed a bit- because after uploading my camera (after almost 3 months of not doing so) I was reminded of some magnificent cakes I was able to make and look forward to sharing with you all.

Have a Fabulous Long Weekend!
