This rather modern looking wedding cake was for a wedding at Crondon Park Golf Club a couple of weeks ago. The outside is white chocolate strips and inside was a choice of lemon cake or chocolate orange. The venue looked lovely with a very vintage feel.

I also took a picture of the cake before I put the roses on because I rather liked the way the strips met at the top to form a peak.

My daughter thought the cakes in my window were looking a bit tired so I have replaced the one with a cascade of large white roses and diamante centres with one with small roses brushed with a delicate pink with pearl centres. Lovely and fresh.

This 3-tier wedding cake, with chocolate, lemon and vanilla tiers has an aubergine ribbon round the base of each tier, and then hand made sugar buttons are stitched on with icing. This was for a wedding at Leez Priory on Saturday. The bride and groom sent me a note:

"I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful cake. It was just as we had imagined it and tasted fantastic."

This very stylish cake was for a wedding at Crondon Park last Friday. The white chocolate cigarillos had a spiral, which gave an extra twist. The fresh roses between the tiers were in wet oasis to keep them fresh all day and did not touch the cake as I had layered it with waxed paper. The tiers were vanilla sponge, chocolate orange and carrot.

This 4-tier wedding cake with a domed top was decorated using a vintage lace mould and lots of hand piped royal icing pearls, topped with some ivory hand made sugar roses. It was for a reception that the bride had at home in a marque in the garden two weeks ago.
