A busy weekend of wedding cakes

First up on the delivery schedule on Saturday was a VERY heavy 4 tier wedding cake. I couldnt actually lift this cake once it was tiered so my lovely fiance had to help me!

The cake was a medley of lovely flavours, including, a rich fruit cake, a rich chocolate brownie cake, a lemon drizzle and a vanilla bean buttercream. It smelt delicious!

After that was delivered to Donington Park Framhouse safe and sound with flowers placed onto it by Kerry at The Blossom Tree we headed over to Tutbury Castle for our next delivery which was 100 chocolate and vanilla cupcakes and a top tier with an English Country Garden theme, so lots of dolly mixtures and pink roses to tie in with their colour scheme.

The rest of Saturday was mine to relax and then Sunday I ran a cupcake decorating workshop for a hen party of 11 very excitable ladies... then it was home to sleep!

A very glam vintage hen party

I held a cupcake decorating workshop with afternoon tea for 11 very glam ladies on Saturday, they were told to dress in 50's chic (not by me!!) and they certainly did, they all looked amazing!

They each decorated 9 cupcakes and learnt how to pipe with buttercream in two ways, buttercream swirls and buttercream roses, they also learnt how to make and use glace icing plus they had a lesson in sugar rose making and how to use lots of cutters and moulds.

I think they came up with some pretty lovely cupcakes.

Well done girls and congratulations to Tina on her engagement, we wish you a lovely wedding day!!!

We now run 2 new cupcake courses, take a peek at our webiste for details
