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.

OLIVE GREEN - BIRTHDAY CAKE




OLIVE GREEN - BIRTHDAY CAKE.


Mrs J was planning a beautiful Afternoon Tea for her Mothers Birthday.... A Garden Tea afternoon for close friends and family ...all invited to join in the celebration at 3pm.  

And so at Midday i was to deliver the all Olive Green Cake - with varying shades of brighter and darker Green flowers and a single Butterfly sitting on top of the roses ............................and embossed Leaves, representing  New Beginnings.

Underneath the canopy of Olive Green were 2 x 6 inch Round Moist Branded Fruit Cakes....
The Birthday Ladies favourite Cake.
Before covering the Cake - a brushing of Brandy and then a warm apricot glaze was gently brushed around and over the entire Cake.

Presented on the Cake board that was also covered in the Olive Green - trimmed with a darker Green Ribbon and decorated with large and small flowers.


Olive Green Macron's filled with a Mixed Berry filling accompanied the Cake - as did Peccarino and Smoked Ham ...... Tomato and Black Olive and Shredded Curry Chicken Mini Quiches.....and a Dozen Vanilla Sponge Cupcakes filled with an Italian Buttercream were to sit amongst the other smell delights that Mrs J had prepared.

The photographs - The decorations - The Guests Gift Bags all beautifully arranged by Mrs J .... sat in readiness for the Guests arrival.

WEDDING - FOUR TIER FRUIT CAKE WITH FRANGIPANIS



WEDDING - FOUR TIER FRANGIPANI FRUIT CAKES 



Four Tiers of  Moist Brandied Fruit Cake -  each tier separated with varying size sugar Frangipani's.
The Tiers = a 6 inch - 8 inch - 10 inch and a 12 inch Bottom Tier.

Yes, this was the Wedding Cake Miss R Designed and asked me to Create...
Each open White Frangipani was dusted with a yellow center.- whilst the little white buds sat tucked in amongst the open petals.....Placed here and there were tiny little flowers, tumbling over the edges of each tier... so as to give a soft appearance to the edges of the Cake.

Standing some 20+ inches high - sitting on a large White Fondant Cake board-  everything Miss R had chosen for her Cake tied in beautifully with  each detail.

Around the base of each Tier was a Hessian Ribbon - which complimented the Beach Theme that Miss R  and Mr B had planned.  

The Venue  - East Fremantle Yacht Club was the perfect setting for such a Wedding Reception.... The view from the Reception Room windows was truly delightful as the Sun slowly began to set. 
 in the late afternoon. 

Yes, this was a delight to create for such a happy Bride....and her Mother, such  pleasure to meet - such a pleasure to work with you both....The relaxed atmosphere and laughter made it all the more enjoyable


Thank you both for your kind words - your card, warm words of  appreciation and the gift you gave. Surely treasured.
