CAVERSHAM HOUSE - BRIDAL OPEN DAY

With grey skies overhead and at times lashings of rain - Caversham House filled with Vendors, shone as tho a Spring Day.

Yes, Sunday the 6th July was the Swan Valley Bridal Open Day -  and before the 10.00am opening of the doors, the two Car parks were starting to fill with visitors.
As finishing touches were added to each Display -  Signs placed in the correct position - a neatening of cloths here and a straightening of chairs there.... 

With a *Have a lovely Day and Your Display Tables look beautiful* to my fellow Vendors - i turned and looked again at my Exhibit and smiled.... Yes, i had created the Soft shades of Green, White, Gold and just a hint of Pastel Pink and with the lighting of the candles, i was happy with what presented before me.

Gold cake stands that held ever so pastel pink Macarons - Mini swirled pastel pink Meringues - wrapped Chocolate Bars  and Vanilla Sponge cupcakes - with pastel pink flowers on top.

All sitting alongside and underneath the tall white cake stands that held the varying shades of pale green display cakes.....and one pale pastel pink cake with a single dusky pink Rose.





















Thank you to all who attended and thank you to those who spoke with me - it was indeed a pleasure..

WEDDING - WHITE RUSTIC CHOCOLATE GANACHE.

WEDDING - WHITE  RUSTIC CHOCOLATE GANACHE

Clear Skies shone over Perth as i set the Wedding Cake up at the Royal Perth Yacht Club.
The Two Tiered Wedding Cake...sitting on Tree Rounds - supplied by the Brides Father....  was a personnel touch for the Day.

The Bottom Tier being a 10 inch Round  x 6 inches high was a Dark Chocolate Mud Cake with Dark Pitted Morello Cherries....torted into 6 layers, each layer being filled with  a beautiful smooth  Belgium Milk Chocolate Ganache.
Then the entire Cake was covered in the same Ganache - then decorated with  Rustic Vertical  lines of Belgium White Chocolate.


The Top Tier being an 8 inch Round x 6 inches high Vanilla Bean Sponge  - torted into 6 layers and filled with  Italian Buttercream - then covered in  White Chocolate Ganache  and again, decorated with Rustic Vertical lines.

The Bride chose Silk Flowers for me to decorate her Cake with..... 
A large Peony to sit atop the op Tier and Two Roses to sit against the bottom Tier edge.  All in colours of Apricots, Pinks and Cream.  

                              

                                                     Open Peony on Top Tier...
