A Pink & Green Wedding

The two tiered cake is chocolate and vanilla, and the pink velvet cupcakes are topped with cream cheese icing and a crystallised rose petal.

This cake and cupcakes are not elaborate, and the bride provided the cake topper and the little ceramic figurine, but the couple – who are friends of ours – met on a train when he asked if he may greet her Service Dog, a huge black Lab named Khan. After a couple more meetings they traded numbers and were soon dating.
She has Cerebral Palsy, and the sight of her walking down the aisle on her father’s arm was simply exquisite.
Khan was the “Dog of Honour” at their wedding, wearing a white bowtie and a rose on his collar, and I surprised them with a little black sugar paste dog on their cake.

A Sparkly Purple Birthday!

Amanda celebrated her birthday this year with TWO parties and ordered two batches of cupcakes like this one.

Half of the purple velvet cupcakes are topped with a purple vanilla butter icing and the other half with cream cheese icing.
They are decorated alternately with moulded sugar paste butterflies in shades of purple, silver sugar paste 50s with silver dragees and some with a pearl dusted sugar paste disc and a piped “50”.
