Wedding Season Cakes & Craft – and a welcome back!

First off, my apologies for not posting for…well, way to long.  For those who don’t know I got married at the end of March and for obvious reasons this consumed all of my time!!

So, on a wedding note I thought I would kick off again with a wedding season post about my homemade wedding cake. I know I’m mad to have made my own but actually it wasn’t as stressful as I thought. I always think it’s more stressful to bake cakes for others than it is for yourself – less pressure and you’ve only got yourself to blame if it goes horribly wrong!

I baked 3 large fruit cakes bake before Christmas and lovingly feed them every couple of weeks with some brandy. My wedding was set the classic setting of Nuthurst Grange, Hockley Heath, West Midlands so I wanted a very traditional looking 3 tier white cake with a broaderie anglais textured feel. I completed this icing about 10 days before the big day so there were no last minute panics the night before. And here it is…..

Needless to say there were lots of other handcrafted items at my wedding.  Here are just a few………..

 

And here we are. All grown up. Mr & Mrs Manning.
