Proudest Moment, making Son and Daughter In Law's Wedding Cake

Posted on

Three years ago when I started my little cake business, in my wildest dreams would I ever have thought that three years on I would be making my sons wedding cake.  

Over the time, i've been priviledged to make many wedding cakes, and although it is very important that each cake is as perfect as it can be for the special couple, there could not be any more pressure to get it right than to make 'the cake' for your son and future daughter-in-law.

Of course it had to have that 'extra edge' so I made it 4 tiers high with diamante spacers in between to give it that extra height and 'WOW' factor.

Being a Christmas and winter wedding, the theme was 'winter wonderland' with sparkling snowflakes, pine cones and fern leaves and diamante and special lace to match Kathryn's stunning dress. The topper was  rhinestone and cristal Mr & Mrs and snowflakes.  

Three of the tiers were different flavours, being vanilla at the bottom, followed by salted caramel and the top two were Gin & Tonic, gin being one of Kathryn's favourite tipples. 

To make it all extra picture perfect we had snow, and as you can see from the pictures included my proudest achievement stood tall and sparkly at the reception.

I'm sure in the months and years to come i'll be making wedding cakes for special couples, but I doubt whether they will make me as proud as this one.
