I love weddings. And they're always extra special when you've been asked to be a part of someones big day. Yes, it comes with a little added pressure (I don't want be the one to ruin anything!) but ultimately it's a massive privilege and a real blessing to be involved in such an important day.
About two weeks ago, I made some cakes for the most beautiful wedding. This was the first completely outdoor wedding I'd been to and it was just perfect. So many colours, so much love and joy and the most thoughtful details ever including earrings for all the bridesmaids handmade by the bride.
I made a total of 10 cakes for this wedding. Yes, you read that correctly. 10. One for each table. I have to say though, it was such a brilliant idea. Each table had something a little different and it meant everyone could cut the cake at the same time and enjoy it together.
What I also loved about making these cakes was how much freedom I had to do what I wanted with them. My humble kitchen wasn't big enough to manage ten completely different flavours so I settled on about five cakes and then doubled up on a few of them. The final cakes included some of my favourites at the moment - Pistachio and Cardamom, Lemon and Thyme, Orange Blossom and Almond and Coconut, passion fruit and mango.
