Your Hampshire and Dorset Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 98)

AUTUMN LEAVES Jane says, “This cake used acrylic spacer tiers, which have been stencilled with royal icing, which is the perfect way to add height to a cake when catering for smaller numbers. The stencilling added delicate detail with a modern twist.” Rachel says, “A beautiful creamy buttercream effect covered this tall and elegant cake. Decorated with creamy brown flowers and thistles, it has a subtle seasonal twist with an autumnal hint.” Angela says, “This four-tiered cake has grooves through the buttercream, a sugar proteus flower and a rose spray. I couldn’t resist creating a cascade when I saw such vivid autumnal flowers!” Rachel says, “This cake is covered in delicious buttercream and decorated with piped flowers. The effect is beautiful with rustic colours and muted tones – espeically with the buttercream cupcakes” Angela says, “This stunning cake was created after the couple asked for a black cake with stripes and a gold drip. The bride completely transformed the venue with artificial flowers to bring it all together.” Olivia says, “This cake was for an autumn wedding and was finished with a white chocolate ganache in bold shades with lots of textured stencil detailing, gold leaf and a flower meadow. The flavours included sticky toffee filled with toffee sauce and lashings of toffee Swiss meringue buttercream.” Olivia says, “This beauty featured many dried florals, roses, shimmery edible wafer paper sails, ivory buttercream, gold leaf detailing and a gold drip. Flavours included spiced carrot sponge made with my signature gingerbread spice mix and a vanilla bean Swiss meringue buttercream.” Jane says, “This cake has no flowers but is decorated with the family tartan, a classic way to incorporate tradition and integrate the tartan throughout the celebration. The pattern could be enhanced by adding sugar thistles and flowers replicating the bouquets.” OLIVIA BAKES THE CAKE FAIRY LTD MON BEL AMOUR CAKE CRAFT THE CAKE FAIRY LTD RACHELLE’S MON BEL AMOUR CAKE CRAFT RACHELLE’S OLIVIA BAKES 54
