The Wedding Cake

At the end of January, my lovely brother and his equally lovely now wife got married.

It was SUCH a nice wedding - we couldn't have asked for better weather, we were infact very lucky as the wedding was down the south coast, and the day before and after the wedding were STINKING HOT. The day OF the wedding was slightly overcast and cool in the morning, and then the sun came out for the afternoon (it was an outside wedding so this was greatly appreciated).

The theme for the wedding was hydrangeas, and this is what I came up with for their cake:

The cake was caramel mudcake, and there were 3 different kinds of cupcakes - red velvet with cream cheese icing, vanilla with vanilla icing and chocolate with vanilla icing.

I'm very, very happy with the way it turned out - I was feeling a bit stressed in the lead up to it because I was working out of a kitchen that wasn't my own and I was concerned about the heat/weather conditions, but it all turned out great in the end.

Here's some pics from the wedding:

Just call me Mary Poppins!!
