What a nerve racking delivery to Val Bonne Country Estate! A million, squillion speed bumps and drains on the way there – with a cake in the boot! AND then I tripped on an inch-high step as I walked into the reception hall, and nearly threw the cake across the hall!!! o.O 😀
The two-tier cake is vanilla cake with white vanilla buttercream filling. The top tier has a white sugar paste cover, with a border of sugar pearls, including a few turquoise pearls in between. The bottom tier is covered with light pink buttercream rosettes. The cake topper was provided by the bride.
The cupcakes were a delicious assortment of flavours! There were dark chocolate covered Oreo cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with chocolate buttercream, and lemon cupcakes with lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing.
This is a chocolate cake made to look like a tree stump, decorated with sugar paste toadstools, acorns, stones, vines, flowers, and hand made sugar paste animal friends – a fox, bird, bunny, owl, and raccoon.
The vanilla cupcakes in brown paper cups were topped with white vanilla buttercream, and decorated with handmade sugar paste owls in yellow, pink, orange, and mint green.
Here are the finished toadstools, leaves, and flowers, made in preparation for finishing the cake decoration and dried before being put on the cake.
Talita and Ruan got married at Greenleaves a couple of weeks ago, and they treated their guests to a delicious selection of cappuccino cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, and vanilla cupcakes, decorated with little sugar pearls.
And they had a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream to cut. The cake was decorated with sugar paste ribbons around the sides – not ruffles – and topped with a small bouquet of fresh flowers.
