Last week, my cousin came over for a private Mad Hatter class. She was holding a dinner for everyone to thank them for their help and support during her wedding and wanted to present the cake as a thank you gift. She created everything herself – all the flowers, the figurine and the cake design too.
That same week I was also enlisted with the task of creating my friend Fonny’s wedding cake/cupcakes and to attend the wedding. Which meant that I had to be very organised with my time! I couldn’t just show up in the afternoon to deliver the cake, I actually had to work out when I needed to get dressed, how I was going to get to the ceremony and work out how I was going to manage 7 boxes of cakes and bonboneries in high heels.
The ceremony was at the Botanical Gardens and I don’t think anyone could have been luckier to have such a beautiful backdrop.
On the day, the storm clouds loomed above and as it neared the time the bride was due to walk down the aisle the chairs and table blew over and we all started to get worried. But the groom and bride were still smiling and they were so clam that I don’t think they would have mind if it really did start raining!
Luckily, everything eventually calmed down and we got to experience a beautiful ceremony. The couple wrote their own sweet vows which I was so honoured to be able to witness and I wish them a lifetime of happiness 🙂
What about the cake you ask? Fonny wanted a garden theme, cupcakes, teddy bears and for it to have pink… the rest she left up to me. I tend to get a little carried away when I have creative freedom 🙂
