Baking under a Strawberry Sky
For the last two years I have been given the honour of judging the Cake Off at the GoBake Cake and Craft Expo in Auckland. This competition, which showcases some of the most talented cake artists in the country, is a wonderful event where each of the four teams has eight hours to create a cake that is over 1 meter tall and designed to a theme which is set by the organisers at GoBake – this year ‘Enchanted’.Read More
As I recently walked through a very grand venue with my 5-tiered creation, I was extremely pleased to place our cake on a table in the center of the dance floor, knowing that it could stand proud in it’s surroundings. True, this bride was having 140 guests which, in itself, warrants a large cake but I was equally impressed by her attention to the detail of the event and the way she had considered the venue and plucked elements from the rest of the wedding and included them into the detail of the cake.Read More
As with all aspects of your wedding cake, the covering comes down to your own preference and style.
Personally, I’m not fondant’s biggest fan but I love frosting so, if I were to marry my gorgeous husband all over again, this is what I would choose. I also love the informality of frosting, it’s very nature ties in beautifully with the vintage themes that are so popular at the moment and I think there is nothing prettier than a frosted cake with beautiful ribbon, adorned with fresh flowers – just stunning!
