The design was inspired by the birthday girl who is a farmers wife. The cake was topped with a sheep handmade from icing and also featured various other handmade farm animals and produce that one might see at a local farmers market. The pastel green icing gave the cake an overall pretty and whimsical feel and was complimented by the traditional picket fencing which encircled the circumference. The cake was a rich, moist fruit cake to give a truly grown-up spin on the farm animal theme.

Kelly wanted a cake that would create a wow as soon as guests entered the room and therefore selected a five tier design. Key to the brief was a white and silver theme that incorporated Swarovski crystal elements to give a sophisticated, luxurious and glamorous air. The cake itself was white with hand piped jewel detailing to the first, third, fourth and fifth tiers. The second tier was decorated with a silver - grey satin bow adorned with a handmade Swarovski crystal brooch. The third and fourth tiers were separated by a bespoke stand decorated with Swarovski crystal droplets which sparkled in the delicate lighting provided by the chandeliers at the venue. The Swarovski crystal elements in the design echoed the crystals that cascaded from the stunning floral displays that graced each table. The cake itself included tiers of Victoria sponge, luscious lemon drizzle cake, decadent rich Belgian chocolate cake and spiced carrot cake each tier containing a scrumptious filling to compliment the cake flavours.
