My very first wedding cake! Well, actually it was a 35th Anniversary Cake for Sheila and Jack Watson -- Congratulations!
Sheila and my mum used to work together and are now very dear friends so we were over the moon to be able to do this cake for her.
The cake is a coconut cake, layered with a pineapple frosting (the same as those pina colada cupcakes a couple of blogs ago.
Sheila had requested a snowflake theme for her cake,
and so we came up with the idea of making a sweep of
snowflakes coming from the top of the cake all the way down to the bottom. What you see here, is the "front" of the cake and since the sweep takes a 360 around the cake, the back of the middle tier is where it continues.
Jack is fond of yellow roses so we decided to finish off the cake with a lovely yellow satin ribbon. We thought that the silver dragees added just the right amount of sparkle to this cake without taking away its delicate look!
That's what we thought...so what do you think?
I am very happy to report that Sheila, Jack and the whole family loved it! (And we're so happy they did!)
