Having been gone from my blog for goodness knows how long, I thought I would start uploading my recent works which I have been doing over the last few months!
I had the privilege in making a wedding cake for two lovely friends who I met through university whilst doing my Primary PGCE. Both extremely hard-working and dedicated individuals to their professions and I genuinely couldn’t be happier to see a more deserving couple!
They had decided on a rustic theme together with a touch of mint and had asked me to make them a cake which was covered in buttercream.
Having been shown a design that they liked I decided to give it a go using two colours, mint and cream.
As you can see, the buttercream has been worked with to create the rustic lines across the tiers. This was done using a small palette knife and simply swiping it across the tiers whilst the buttercream was still somewhat soft as I didn’t want to do it afterwards once the buttercream had hardened purely because the buttercream would crumble off and leave an untidy finish to the cake!
Have you ever made a cake similar to this? How did you find making it?
