Rose Wedding Cake – Cake of the Week & The Gallery

It is an absolute miracle that this cake made it to the reception, never mind that it was fit to eat. This cake was a wedding last Friday, yep, the rainiest day ever and I had to deliver it to a reception where the car park is nowhere near the door. There may have been some running and a Peppa Pig umbrella involved.

We were actually guests at the wedding (and we were child free for most of it!!) – the dire weather didn’t spoil the day. It was lovely and relaxed. Laura and Mark are gorgeous and their 5 boys (!!! All 5 and under) looked and behaved beautifully.

Unusually both tiers were fruit with a polystyrene middle section on the cake to insert the flowers into. This was definitely one of those cakes where you think you need so many flowers but actually have to treble it. It tooks hundreds!!

My new favourite flower to make is a tulip type bud – they dust up wonderfully.

I’ve attached a photo of the new Mr & Mrs Molyneux (pinched from Laura’s facebook page) along with their 3 eldest boys – the 6 month old twins were asleep at this point.

The link is up for Cake of the Week if you would like to join in. Remember its not a competition, just for fun!

We had a lovely entry from Angie at Cakesphotolife last week – I suspect that this cake was another one of those that takes 3 x more flowers than you expect!


I love the story behind Sadaf’s first fondant cake -Her eldest daughter had it for her graduation at 5!! If she has a cake that good then, what will she get for graduating from uni?


Jackie’s cakes are getting more impressive by the week – the covering on this cake is perfection and those butterflies must have taken some dedication!


I’m entering this week’s Cake of the Week into Tara Cain’s The Gallery link up – The theme for this week is Food. Always something that is on my mind but at the moment cakes are somewhat taking up every waking hour!
