Congratulations to a beautiful couple who got married on Saturday – and I had the pleasure of creating their wedding cake. Their ceremony was elegant and simple at St Giles church, at Calke Abbey (http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/calke-abbey) followed by a beautiful reception at the riding stables. The stable was simply decorated using daisys as a broad theme – so the cake had to match! A 3 tier lemon sponge filled with lemon curd and buttercream – I hope it was as delicious as it looked and smelt! A cascade of daisys adorned the side of the cake – to be honest I was rather worried that I would arrive at the reception venue with little more than a white iced cake with daisy centres, so armed with my “first aid” kit I was presently surprised to see them all in tact!
