Wedding Cupcakes | Cake | Melbourne

Hello, and welcome to our first post for 2010!

This has been a busy week, with two big weddings in the diary.

First up was Catherine and Yoshi's big event. The wedding was held at Sky High, Mt Dandenong, in the hills above Melbourne. The reception room looks out over Melbourne's suburbs with the city in relief against the skyline. At night, the view is beyond spectacular.

The theme for this couple's wedding cake was Cherry Blossom, with the chosen flavour as White Truffle Raspberry. Both the cupcakes and co-ordianting cake are white fondant over ganache. The branch detailing is royal icing, and the blossoms are sugarpaste.

Most of the cupcakes were boxed in clear acrylic cube boxes for the guests to take away as bonbonierre, with a small stand display at the reception, topped with the cutting cake.
Our second wedding was for Steve and Laura. I have known this couple now for quite a while, and it was a real honour for them to ask me to help them celebrate their big day. Steve is an avid wedding photographer, so what better way for their wedding cake to be topped than with a figuring of the man himself taking photos of his muse, and now wife, Laura? I can't take credit for either the idea of the toppers (that is all Steve's doing!), and they sourced the toppers themselves... but I think they are fabulous, and very much in the vein of the entire wedding... relaxed and fabulous!

The cupcakes are chocolate fudge with pale Wedgewood blue fondant over vanilla bean buttercreme. The cutting cake is Wildberry Fudge, with fondant over ganache. Both the cake and the cupcakes are decorated with royal icing piping, highlighted with edible silver lustre.

The bride and groom:
Well, that's it for this week - we will hopfully have a new cake design to debut this weekend, and we will also be lunching our next giveaway, so see you all back here then - have a great week!
