Afternoon tea wedding tower

This order was for a lovely couple, Julie and Ian, who were having a traditional afternoon tea for their wedding breakfast and wanted to carry that theme into their evening celebrations. After lots of discussion we decided on a mixture of Raspberry Ripple and Lemon Zinger cakes to keep things fruity, fresh and summery.

Ellie wanted to make the Raspberry Ripple cakes extra delicious, so she flavoured and coloured the Buttercream frosting with fresh raspberry puree (made by pushing the fruit through a sieve). The Lemon Zinger cakes had their usual lemon curd centres, with fresh lemon zest and juice providing a subtle tang to the sponge and Buttercream.

Each Raspberry Ripple cake was decorated with a handmade, two tone sugar rose. Ellie made these in advance (to allow for drying time) and brushed them with edible lustre dust to give a little shimmer. We delivered and set the cakes up at the venue (part of our FREE event consultation and planning service - contact us for more details) and were relieved that the day had cooled down a bit - we have really been feeling the heat in Norwich and were worried about Buttercream disasters!

We were thrilled with the result and the bride called us the next day to say how much she loved the cakes and that they were throughly enjoyed by the guests. Mission accomplished!

  1. OMG!! These cupcakes are really delicious. It reminds me of a bridal shower at New York wedding venues that I recently attended. There also had some yummy cupcakes like these. They were really delicious and amazing.
