Two of my closest friends Jennifer and Steve (now Mr and Mrs Cobb) got married this weekend at a small ceremony in Suffolk. I had the pleasure of making the cake for their special day. Jennifer's only request was that I add a Lego bride and groom to the top, so as Jen is a fan of Lego and Steve likes anything historical I thought I would incorporate a Castle! First, here is a picture of the happy couple :-)
And the happy couple cutting their wedding cake..
and finally a cake close up...
I didn't make the Lego carriage out of icing incase anyone is wondering how I made it look exactly like Lego! I bought it and got my boss at work Paul to put it together (in record-breaking time I might add). I thought it would look great on the cake board as I wanted to make it look like Jennifer and Steve had arrived in their horse drawn carriage to their castle. I also couldn't resist adding the Lego King..
At Jennifer's request the cake was a small 2 tier with chocolate and vanilla sponge layers sandwiched together with chocolate buttercream. The vine detail on the cake was hand piped using royal icing and I used gold paint on some of the detail to make it stand out.
Next year they will be having a party with all their friends and family at which they will renew their wedding vows in front of everyone and I get to make another cake :-) cant wait.
Jennifer made her own wedding favours for the day and I had to share a picture as I thought they were fabulous! Jen has a biscuit decorating company called B is for Biscuit.
Wishing them both all the happiness in the world.
Happy baking everyone!
