There was a special appeal about Margaret, as we sat and discussed the White Wedding Cake for her Son and future Daughter In Law. You could sense not only the excitement but the joy as the Wedding Day approached.
Such a treat to see a Mother so organised - and enjoying all there was leading up to the big day.

Margaret spoke of how the flowers would be all white - with the beautiful green that would be in the Brides Bouquet....orchids, rose buds, tuberose (my favourites), just to name a few.

An allll white Cake - perhaps with white fondant ribbon stripes around all four sides of the square cake... then white Gardenia style flowers placed delicately on top.....with some leaves - pale to give an over all soft summer look.

It was such a pleasure to prepare all of the delicate flowers and make this cake -  7 inches tall sitting atop the white covered board with delicate butterflies strategically placed...again, adding a soft gentle touch to the overall picture.

The Florist did a beautiful job of the flower arrangements - ready to make a striking display - leaves cut with precision - flowers in all shades of white .... and the scent - just heavenly.

Thank you so very much Margaret for choosing me to make this cake  - it bought a smile to my face as i carefully made and added each and every detail.

And thank you for the "ohhh my" and smiles as i delivered it to your door -  one smile said it all.
It was indeed a labour of love.

Flowers for the Tables

Flowers for the Bride.

Wishing the Bride and Groom every Joy.
and again - Thankyou Margaret.



  1. Absolutely lovely, M. And I agree . . . I love the white on white, with the light green -- very soft and summery.

    Hats off and thumbs up! :)

  2. Wow, M, another gorgeous cake. The flowers are wonderful, not wonder the mother of the bride was thrilled!

  3. I would have to say this is one of my favorite cakes you have made... VERY BEAUTIFUL !

  4. PDX - yes, the white on white is very soft looking isn't it - and the pale green very *Summer*.

    MrsKT - The flowers were so delicate - but a joy to make.

    PDCC - Thankyou, i was thrilled with the final creation - gentle on the eye i hoped.

    Thank you all for your kind comments - :)


  5. Your "those white flowers" turned out beautifully. And you said you were dealing with humidity?! You'd never know it. They are so delicate and help carry the soft, summery theme. And you always have such an appropriate palette to whatever theme you dream. A+, M.

  6. Jan, thank you so very nuch for the high praise you give me - with a heater in my caking room on during a 40C+ week i was so pleased to see my flowers set...and take shape.
    Thank you again
