A few months ago I meet a lovely couple who were looking for their wedding cake. Last weekend I had the pleasure of delivering their 4 tier cake to Solomons in Tunbridge, Kent ready for their special day. When I arrived the ceremony was taking place in the same room as the wedding breakfast so the bride had chosen for the cake to be set up and on display all day for guests to see.
When I first met the couple they had already designed their wedding invitations, which were red in colour and had 2 hummingbirds, one gold and one cream on the front. After discussing the theme of their wedding and incorporating parts of their invitation I came up with a 4 tier cake design consisting of a 5, 7, 9 and 11 inch cakes, which were all 5 inches in height. The bride and groom wanted red roses on their cake, but also wanted to incorporate the hibiscus flower in a pink to match what the groom was wearing. The flowers were all made out of gumpaste and also the 2 hummingbirds on at the top of the cake which I made in gold and cream to match the ones on the front of the invitation.
The cake was ivory in colour and decorated with 2 different designs. 2 of the tiers had little gold hearts on them, and the other 2 had a hibiscus and hummingbird design which was put onto the cakes with a custom stencil I had made. Both the hearts and the custom patterns were then painted with gold edible paint. I really loved how this cake came together with the different flowers and colours and I hope the couple had a fantastic wedding day.
