Such a special date - such a special occasion.
Something in the colour of Veridian with a White Bow, and threads of Bling, attached to the ribbons of the Bow.
Something different to the traditional *present cake* one usually see's - yes, a Tall Cake - a Chocolate Mud Cake with a Caramel Milk Ganahce filling in between each of the 6 layers....is what Phoebe chose.
A 7 inch Round Cake - standing 7 inches tall.
Dainty Butterflies dotted here and there - and a plague with an embossed 18 sitting to the side of the Cake.
For something completely different i decided to edge the base of the Cake with a thread of Bling also - and instead of the traditional ribbon around the edge of the Cake board - i added another thread of Bling.
It did glimmer in the light and i must say - Veridian and threads of Bling work/look beautifully together.
The Birthday Cake - sitting high on my crystal stand - which again worked well with the Bling - reflecting more light.
Mini Cupcakes accompanied the Birthday Cake.... sitting in little clear boxes - tied with white ribbon and finer threads of Bling... to tie in with the theme... as well as the little cupcakes, sitting on the White Cake stand -
On arrival, to deliver the creation, one could tell that a great deal of planning had gone into this special occasion.... beautifully placed pots of gorgeous colour greeted all at the front entry - as did Phoebe who looked stunning and radiant, as she waited for her guests to arrive.
