Once upon a wedding – A look back at some 2014 Sugared Rose real weddings
Posted on January 6th 2015
So the new year has been and gone and we are all struggling to stick to those pesky (but well intentioned) New Year’s resolutions. 2014 was a quiet year wedding wise for us but a busy year all things cake, all things business related and all things wedding.
So today I thought I would share a few that really stood out for me, and that I had the best time creating.
Hayley & Tris – 12thJanuary 2014
Hayley and Tris had a gorgeous winter wedding and my first wedding for 2014. I creating a dessert table for their wedding reception at Revolution De Cuba in Derby (apologies about the photo quality the venue was very dark).
It was a very last minute wedding order (only a months notice eek!!) And to try and keep costs down for them the bride had the idea for me to simply decorate Costco cakes for their desert table and create a wedding cake to match. A little bit of a hairy experience in places as the stability of the Costco cakes was interesting but lots of fun to do just the icing and decoration for once.
Sarah & Dave – 9thAugust 2014
AKA Mr & Mrs Sugared Rose I couldn’t really not include this one could I?! I am not going to go into detail with this one now though as you will see why on the blog very soon… (Photo's by Chris Seddon - Wedding Photographer)
Vicky & Chris – 14th September 2014
I love, love, loved this wedding cake! It had been a while since I had created a tiered cake covered in ganache instead of fondant and it was my first order since getting hitched myself so what a cake to get back into the swing of things!
Loads of white chocolate ganache and an abundance of hand crafted sugar roses and flowers. Vicky and Chris were a really lovely couple and this one was a real joy to do.
Estelle & David - 6thDecember 2014
Our last wedding of 2014 and a very different style for me and a wonderfully glittery one to end on. Estelle first contacted me at the beginning of the year looking for a wedding cake that combined both her French heritage and David's wish for a traditional white wedding cake, so a cake pop cascade in a nod to the croquembouche became our answer.
Such a really lovely and genuine couple, we had many get together's to create the couples vision Estelle also sent me a really lovey email after their day which really made me smile and even now I am still finding red edible glitter in the kitchen.
So that’s it. A little short and sweet round up blog post today but please stop by again soon.
