Hanri and Wulrich Wedding Cake

Having worked with wedding and events planner Hanri Mouton (now Mrs van Wyk) for Glee Events and Promotions , I was very honoured when she asked me to make her dream wedding cake.  I am a total perfectionist when it comes to my work and my cakes, so the stress levels upped a bit when I knew that I was making her cake.

They got married on the 17th of December 2011 at Sante Winelands Hotel and Spa (gorgeous!!!) and asked that the colours of the cake should be cream with midnight blue details.  The groom did not know that Hanri had flowers on her dress, so I secretly designed this into the bottom tier.

The design ended up being 5 tiers (7 tiers if you count that the two top tiers are double layers - and Hanri wanted 7 tiers) in the colours of their choice and this gorgeous midnight blue satin ribbon with some diamante detail.  And hundreds of different flowers and pearl beads on the bottom tier.

They had chocolate fudge cake, vanilla rose, rooibos and lemon and carrot with a yummy cheescake frosting.

 

This was one of my favourite cakes to design and make!! 

Have a look on my facebook page With Love Baking to a close-up photo of the cake!
