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!
