Rocky the dog dressed in matching bow tie as best man for the bride and groom
One of the cakes for last weekend was a wedding cake for Claire & John.
Claire’s idea was for an elegant three-tier design with each cake tier offset with the icing figures of the newly weds sitting together. The wedding cake tiers were fruit cake (supplied by the bride’s father), vanilla sponge and lemon sponge. While we chatted about the design, they came across some of my other cake designs and decided that their pet dog Rocky just had to be featured too!
Three tier white and red wedding cake with Rocky, roses and bride and groom.
With the wedding colour theme being white and claret red we agreed to keep the use of colour to a minimum, so the cake was finished off with red ribbon, the brides red rose bouquet and Rocky’s red bow tie which was part of his wedding outfit!
It’s always nice to be asked to do something slightly different, and this two tier wedding cake in a subtle shade of blue with delicate white and yellow centred daisies turned out to be a perfect combination! Rebecca and Dan, the bride and groom, were modelled in replica’s of their wedding outfit’s with their beloved cats on either side of them.
Instead of traditional fruit or sponge cakes they opted for a tier each of carrot cake with lemon butter icing and chocolate mud cake with vanilla butter icing, delicious! The cake was delivered to The Blackwell Grange Hotel in Darlington early on the morning of their wedding.
