When we heard the exciting news about our friends tying the knot we knew a fantastic cake was to be created for their special day. We sat with the happy couple and went through some ideas with them to gain an insight into would like. The decision was made to make a wonky cake (also known as a mad hatter cake, tospy turvy cake or asymmetrical cake).
I was a little nervous about this as I had not done a wonky cake as a wedding cake before and the idea of making a wonky cake look wedding cake perfect seemed a challenge, however I was working with my cake partner in crime Lou Lou and I had great faith that she could carry us through this challenge.
We had the style sorted, colour scheme as purple, silver and ivory, our friend Chris was making a fimo bride and groom along with fimo models of their cats as a surprise and we were having petal paste flowers – the plan was in place.
I headed over to Lou Lou’s house with the petal paste flowers, where she had baked the cakes all ready for decorating and we got to work icing and decorating the cake. It took us two evenings to get the cake finished and it all went fairly smoothly. We work really well as a team, getting on with things, talking things through when needed, keeping on top of the cleaning and mainly having fun. By the end of the first night we had a clean kitchen along with a cake all iced and stacked ready for the detail. The second night we had Chris with us as he had finished the fimo characters and they were ready for the cake. We set to decorating the cake, added the bride, groom, cats and flowers to get an idea of the finished piece and then stepped away happy with our creation.
The cake was set up at the wedding in time for the wedding breakfast as a surprise as they were not expecting it to be set up until the evening do. The cake looked amazing and the happy couple loved it. Congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Jones, we had such a fantastic day and wish you years of happiness and laughter together. Thanks for letting us make your wedding cake we had a lot of fun!<img class="size-medium wp-image-5287" alt="Handmade flowerpaste flowers & Fimo bride and groom " src="http://www.hoursoffun.co.uk/blog/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/tier-wonky-wedding-cake-purple-silver-and-ivory-1-300×195.jpg" width="300" height=" Handmade flowerpaste flowers & Fimo bride and groom
The top tier was lemon which we placed in a box and gave to the bride and groom to take home and enjoy. The second tier was chocolate, then lemon, with the bottom tier vanilla. The flowers we white roses and purple lisianthus made from edible petal paste. I had never made lisianthus before and I am now proud to add them to my flower collection.
