4 tier wedding cake

This weekend was VERY busy! I had 2 weddings, a 70th birthday, a hen party afternoon tea and family to visit!

On Friday I delivered a 4 tier wedding cake to Donington Park Farmhouse, one of my favourite venues, while I was there I had a good nose around at the decorations of the wedding, which I love doing as it always looks so pretty. The bride had hundreds of fairy lights all over the barn where they were getting married, it looked stunning.

The 4 tier cake was rich fruit cake on the bottom, vanilla sponge, chocolate and cherry and finally lemon drizzle, so a good mix of flavours in there.

The giant cupcake was a Madeira cake with vanilla buttercream and the seaside cake was a mix of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with a rich fruit cake top tier and a giant sugar bow on top.

I delivered the afternoon tea to a lovely group of woman staying at Emily Barn in Carsington, Derbyshire. A very beautiful place to have your hen do and lovely owners too. The ladies had finger sandwiches, scones, cream and jam, Victoria sponges and cupcakes all served on vintage china.

A busy weekend but worth it!

  5. The wedding cake was yummy! We have spent our honeymoon steadily munching my way through what wasn't eaten on the day. My favourites are the fruit and the chocolate and cherry layer. My husband (that still sounds weird!) particularly likes the vanilla and the lemon. the little blossom decorations were so pretty. Thanks Julie!
