August… and the weather couldn’t be more perfect for a wedding at Herstmonceux Castle!
I first met Olivia and Matt back in January 2015 and from our first meeting they were a joy to work with. Olivia had clear ideas of what she wanted…..understated modern elegance with the tiniest hint of bling!
White with touches of deep velvety red were the theme for this wedding and the cake was a real treat to make. Oliva and Matt decided on some classic flavours that would be pleasing to all of their guests…..Double chocolate with a chocolate ganache filling, Zesty lemon with whipped lemon curd butter cream and the ever popular Madagascan Vanilla bean and raspberry.
The over sized deep red sugar roses…..an absolute favourite of mine topped the cake off perfectly! Hand pipped lace covered two of the tiers and inspiration was taken from the brides dress to create the sugar bow which sat proudly in the middle of the cake. Strings of diamante ribbon overlapped the sumptuous red ribbon that matched the theme of the entire wedding. The cake was displayed in an alcove of the very grand ball room at Herstmonceux Castle. ……The perfect spot!
Me…..Setting up…..I LOVE this part!
Oooh, almost forgot to mention the edible sugar petals that were scattered on the table…..
