Crondon Park Golf Club and Wedding Venue are holding a wedding fayre on Sunday, 1st March. Open from 11.00 do come along if you are looking for a venue for your wedding. Their recommended suppliers will be exhibiting their wares, and I will be displaying a range of the cakes I have designed including those shown below. Plus, of course, some cake samples for tasting.

This 60th birthday cake is the same size and shape as the one in my post below, also with pink roses, but how different in feel. Instead of a simple classic design this cake says chocolate indulgence. For a small birthday gathering.

This very simple, classic birthday cake has a spray of handmade white sugar roses dusted with pink edges, lily of the valley, and blossoms and leaves.

This cake actually dates back to 2008, but is still a very popular design. I had a lovely note from the bride this morning:

"Hi there Melanie
I hope you are well.
I just wanted to say thank you for helping my mum and doing her wedding cake for her! We adored the cake you did for us when we got married and mum thought of you straight away when she got engaged!
Thanks again
Warm regards"

And this is not the first time I have made a cake for a mother's wedding after having made her daughter's wedding cake.

I made this cake for a friend's daughter's 18th birthday. Two tiers of sponge cake with white sugarpaste and lilac and purple decoration.

On Wednesday a couple of cake making friends came round and we played with cake lace. This snowflake mould I borrowed from Georgie Godbold. I made lots of different snowflakes and icicles and made a winter wonderland wedding cake with sugar snowflakes, white lustre spray and some diamante strings. Just one or two tiers would also make a fabulous 'Frozen' cake.
