Cirencester Cupcakes - Wedding Cake, Bittenham Spring

Ivory Rose Wedding – Bittenham Springs

Do you have a favourite fruit cake recipe that been passed down from great-great-granny to you. We do, my Great-Granny’s recipe is still the same one I use for my fruit cakes, and my Other Half’s Mum will use her family fruit recipe for our wedding cake next year. It’s always a delight when I meet a bridal couple, and it always feels very special when they ask if we can use a family recipe fruit cake, that Mum or Granny have made for their cake.

When Michelle and her Mum came to the shop for a wedding consultation, they were over the moon that I could ice and decorate, Michelle’s Mum’s home-made fruit cakes. Michelle’s wedding day was a mixture of a very subtle blush pink and ivory, and she asked if we could incorporate this into the cake; along with a very soft elegant, vintage style. Michelle also asked if a simple swiss-dot pattern could be added to the cake. Michelle’s Mum was worried that the cakes she’d baked were not deep enough, so to create height, we double-drummed the cake board, and separated the tiers with matching ivory satin ribbon separaters. Here’s what we did and Michelle and new new husband Llion, loved it!

Michelle’s reception was held at a new outdoor venue near Cirencester, Bittenham Springs. The marquee was set against a beautiful Cotswold countryside backdrop with a lovely lake, great for photos!
