Bianca and Reinaldo got married at Cradle Valley Guesthouse in March, and treated their guests to a delicious selection!
My delectable chocolate cake with chocolate butter icing was decorated with sugar paste to look like a tree stump with a heart “carved” into the side bearing the couple’s initials, R&B.
The couple provided the cake topper.
My almost-famous cupcake-in-a-jar is perfect for wedding favours, and Bianca and Reinaldo ordered funfetti cupcakes, chocolate and vanilla marble cupcakes, cappuccino cupcake, chocolate cupcakes, and vanilla cupcakes, and had brown and beige ribbons on the jars. They provided the stickers for the sides of the jars and Reinaldo got down to work sticking them on after they had finished decorating the hall and Bianca went off to get dolled up!
This couple didn’t have a wedding cake as such – they had cheese instead! How cool is that!
To decorate it, they ordered this custom-made sugar piece with the couple in their wedding clothes, and their beloved Dachsunds at their feet.
They also wanted to include their hobbies – the bride loves to bake and the groom loves to fly fish.
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.
