This is a short blog. The four tiered cake was designed by the groom and created by me. The only alteration made was to the damask design to simplify the design presented by the groom.
There is always a first time for everything; and this is the first time I had a wedding cake due on Easter Sunday.
With all church activities that surrounded Easter Tridium, and extra long church services and Holy mass, creating the cake was a challenge.
Yet, nothing is impossible with God! Though, with few hours of sleep, the Lord gave me strength and energy to complete the task at hand.
I had the honour and pleasure of designing two cakes for the National Post newspaper, which were featured on March 9, 2013. The inspiration for cakes was drawn from two dresses from the 2013 Paris haute couture runway.
There were various beautiful designs from many talented designers. Yet, the opening gown by Valentino caught my eye, along with the greyish dress with lavender undertone.
The opening dress with the design in red against a flesh colour, reminded me of piping. Immediately, I was drawn to the dress due to its vibrant red and the intricate, yet, elegant design.
Inspiration for the second cake was also from the Valentino collection. A combination of lilac and silver shimmer, with embroidery and lace work provided me with many ideas. Yet, to make it simple, elegant and differnt, the cake was designed utilizing the embroidery work on the bodice of the dress.
It was such a great joy and a honour to create two cakes inspired by two beautiful gowns. The rest of the collection of dresses are a great inspiration for cakes.
St. Timothy’s image was hand painted in food colouring. The bible and the cross are symbols of St.Timothy. The bible was created out of cake and the cross in fondant.
It was a sponge cake with chocolate, mocca filling and covered in fondant. The bible was hand painted.
