Last week Vanilla Pod created a beautiful wedding cake tower for a lovely couple from Swindon. The brief was to create a tower of mini shaped cakes and a top cake for cutting.
I first met the couple at a wedding fayre at the venue, Manor By The Lake, in 2013 and shortly after we arranged a complimentary tasting consultation in Cheltenham. Their theme was to be cadbury purple and bright pink, using these colours we worked to together to design their wedding cake tower. With flavours decided and design finalised the couple made the booking. Hooray.
The tower was made up of a delicious 8" round carrot, walnut and orange top cake sandwiched with cream cheese frosting and decorated with ivory fondant icing and colourful sugarpaste bunting.
Working your way down the tower there were a mixture of different shaped mini cakes including, Rum, Raisin and Coconut pink square cakes with bunting and Lemon, Blackberry and Apple purple square cakes with bunting. They also had cute little white fondant heart cakes, which were made of Belgian Chocolate sponge and Belgian Chocolate ganache and decorated with their initials. As well as little bite size vanilla cupcakes decorated with the initials of the 6 children who were guests at the wedding too.
