I was delighted to make Leanne & Jon's wedding cake on Easter Monday. They were getting married at Coombe Lodge in Blagdon, a beautiful venue that I am lucky enough to have delivered plenty of wedding cakes to and also attended weddings there myself.
The theme for their wedding was country fair and there were going to be lots of crafty finishing touches, the majority of which Leanne made herself. When they first came to see to chat cake the idea was a 3 tier rustic buttercream cake. But they mention they would like to incoporate lace somehow, so the design evolved. The finished product was a perfect blend of rustic and elegant and overall, beautiful.
The bottom tier was lemon sponge with lemon curd and buttercream. The middle was 'cherry bakewell, - amaretto sponge with cherry jam and amaretto buttercream. The top was vanilla sponge with raspberry jam and white chocolate buttercream. The middle tier was iced and finished with cake lace which is an edible lace in a design which was a great match for the sample of lace I was sent from Leanne's dress.
It was then finished perfectly with stunning spring flowers that were provided by Acacia flowers Ltd in Wells (http://www.acaciaflowers.co.uk/).
