Beautiful Rustic Vintage Wedding cake

Well here it is... my own wedding cake! This is what I created for my amazing day. It was 4 tiers of delicious vanilla sponge with a buttercream finish using palette knife techniques topped with hand made sugar roses. I loved the look of it as its so rustic and simple.

I placed lots of my pretty vintage tea plates all around it so people could help themselves to lots of cake. I also had a dessert table with many, many lovely cakes and puddings that I made but also some from my mum, mum in law and best friend, all were so delicious and a piece of art in itself. A wedding dessert table is a great idea for a wedding as you can get your friends and family involved too.

My guests loved delving into such a wide selection including tirimasu, triple chocolate brownies, rich chocolate cake, fruit cake, pavlova, Victoria sponge, coffee and walnut and lemon drizzle... amazing!

I loved my wedding day and was true to what myself and my husband love and that reflected in the cakes we went for too. To all my brides and grooms out there your engagement is such a precious time, take some time to have a good think about what you would like on your day, things that you love and both want and go for it!
