It's been a while since we last blogged.. The weather in Melbourne is warming up and wedding season is upon us. Since our last blog, my brother and my now sister-in-law tied the knot, and if that wasn't exciting enough for one little family, my sister and her fiancé also got engaged! So love is truly in the air here in Cake Me! land.
Those of you who have been following us over the years would know that we take all of our cakes very seriously. Especially wedding cakes. Each wedding cake is unique and created with the bride and groom, for the bride and groom. Although each cake is personalised and unique, from strikingly bold to subtle, detailed fondant-finishes to rustic naked cakes, our signature high tiers consistently make each and every wedding cake that we have created, grand and elegant in its own way.
The last three wedding cakes we have created celebrated three wonderful couples and their three very different weddings. These three cakes showcase how dissimilar wedding cakes can be.
Farzeen and Matt's wedding was held at the very glamorous venue, The Deck, Prince Hotel in St Kilda. Their gorgeous cake with intricate fondant cascading petals complimented the venue's window backdrop.
Mary and Dat's wedding held at The Park in Albert Park had a very modern retro feel, with the extravagant chandeliers contrasting the jet black walls and the gorgeous windows looking out to the iconic Albert Park lake. We used contrasting textures to highlight the tiers, and gold lustre to compliment the bride's subtle gold theme.
Finally our most recent cake is Joy and Warren's semi naked cake for their wedding at Stones of the Yarra Valley. The bride chose the naked look for the rustic and vintage theme, but semi-naked to keep the cake elegant and structured. Each piece of fruit on the cake were individually hand selected. Gorgeous blooms adorned the cake to highlight the natural beauty of the venue, with the spectacular vineyards and rolling hills sitting modestly in the background behind the cake.
Wedding cakes have come a long way over the years from the traditional fruit cake covered with marzipan, to the infinite options offered to the bride and groom today. Wedding cakes today are exciting. They make a gorgeous centrepiece for the wedding venue and are no longer one-size-fit-all. Wedding cakes can truly reflect the taste of the bridal couple and the theme of the wedding, sometimes incorporating bold colours, some more simple and yet classy, others opting for heavy detailing, stenciling, and fondant-finishing, cakes with softer finishes of buttercream, tiers of hand painted lustre for high-gloss shine, to the raw elegance and simplicity of fresh fruit and flowers.
We are looking forward to creating more spectacular wedding cakes this wedding season and to sharing them here with you all. To those of you who are deeply in love but not engaged yet.. Go and get down on one knee!!
