Let Them Eat Cake

Every now and then I have the opportunity to make a beautiful cake for someone special. In this case it was for two people. On Saturday Christie and Nathan tied the knot after a whirlwind romance (how romantic) and I had the honour of making their wedding cake.

A few weeks ago, Christie came to me with a picture of a silhouette cake she’d seen from a London bakery and asked me to recreate it. It seemed simple enough… if you had an e-cutter that you could feed fondant through. I didn’t. But I decided that it would still be possible to do it all by hand. She also gave me some specific silhouettes that were symbolic of their relationship.

The bottom tier featured them as a courting couple. They often visited the local gardens and this scene also includes Christie’s son playing nearby.

I was glad to hear that they loved it.
