A wedding cake for my very own sister... the cake appointment of the year for me. I got first-hand insight into the process of selecting a wedding cake. 1) Collect approximately 50 pictures of cakes you like 2) Narrow this down to 10 or so 3) Consider the wedding dress, venue, invitations, table decorations, colour scheme and bonbonierre 4) Decide what you like and what you don't about each of the 10 cakes 5) Have model cakes created to help visualise, incorporating the other elements of the wedding 6) Select wedding cake! I would have expected nothing less :)
The order of the day - delicate to suit her dress, vintage to match the castle-like venue, relatively simple, no bling, no fuss, not too loud, and unique in structure - no tiered looks here, but a two layer cake with the bottom layer double height. I must note that this is the first time I've considered using black faux flowers for the cake, and also the first time it was perfectly appropriate.
