The design for this single tier wedding cake was inspired by both the wedding invitations and the bridal bouquet. The bride wanted a delicate, dainty theme that reflected her taste for understated elegance. The hand piped embroidery detail to the circumference of the cake incorporated the pattern from the wedding stationery, entwined hearts and was accented with tiny handmade icing butterflies. The floral posy included handmade ivory roses, pale pink freesias and ivory lisianthas which perfectly complemented the beautiful setting of the Rectory in Crickhowell. The cake itself was a rich traditional fruit cake covered with ivory fondant.
