Mr and Mrs Bloom

Charlie_Eddie_WeddingCake_01

I feel very lucky to have been able to make all my friends that got married this year a cake for their weddings. Like this little cake I made for my friends Charlie and Eddie. Since they were getting married in France (you can see snippets of their incredible wedding over on my instagram!) they were to have a small registry office wedding the week before. They asked me to make something to have after at their post-registry lunch celebrations. I wanted it to feel like a proper little wedding cake so went for an extra tall two tier cake. To give it a bit more wedding cake presence I displayed it on a tall pink cake stand and finished it with a topper that observed their new title ‘Mr and Mrs Bloom’. Let me tell you about the insides before I tell you about the exterior decorations. So I had a fun cake tasting with the couple where they chose Victoria Sponge for the bottom and the top tier was coffee cake. On the sly the Bride decided to add a little touch to surprise the groom. He proposed with a Haribo ring (THE cutest thing – so they could choose the ring together) so she wanted to have a piñata effect and fill the top tier with haribo rings so they would be inside when they cut into it. You can see how I did this in the dodgy iphone photo below. For the outside they wanted some gold so went with the gold leaf on the top tier. The other tier had a sugar sheet with a custom pattern print I had designed for them featuring a pink colour scheme and the flowers she would be having on the day. I desperately love that their last name is Bloom and it was all flowery! I made a simple pink peony to sit on the ledge of the cake and tie it all together. I loved making this cake for them and getting to be a small part of their day. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Bloom! x
