Cath Kidston Birthday Cake 2

Another Cath Kidston inspired cake in hues of pink, blue and crisp white for a 21st birthday celebration. This design included hand painted bunting, complete with mini icing bow accents, and a hand painted gift tag to the base tier; hand painted floral design to the second tier and finally a pretty hand made icing bow to the top. The cake included a tier of light, moist Victoria sponge filled with rich vanilla buttercream and strawberry conserve and a zingy, lemon tier filled with Lemoncello buttercream and zesty lemon curd.

Pretty Pastels Rose Cascade Wedding Cake

The design of this cake was based on the original created by Peggy Porschen, and featured handmade icing roses, hydrangeas, ranunculas and blossoms in hues of ivory, pastel pink, and muted lilac. Each tier of the cake was accented with satin ribbon and vintage lace to compliment the lace detailing to the bridal gown. The icing flowers cascaded down the cake, culminating in a fresh floral base to give additional impact to the five tier design. The handmade icing roses complimented the Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Art Nouveau, styling at the venue which was bathed in rays of spring sunshine - wonderful weather for a fantastic family. The cake itself combined layers of light Victoria sponge with layers of vanilla buttercream and conserve and rich Belgian chocolate cake oozing with decadent chocolate ganache.
