wedding cake with deer, lyrics and bunting

I’m on the shy side when it comes to the blog and don’t tend to actually tell people I know about it. Of course I tweet when I’ve posted, but it feels like I have a certain degree of anonymity when shouting out into a great empty virtual nothingness. Given this, I was quite taken aback when Bex, the President of the Women’s Institute group I attend, approached me about making her wedding cake after seeing some of my cakes on here.

I really enjoyed making this cake, as it was very personal to the couple. Deers were central to the proposal and also featured on the invites which we’re beautifully made by a friend. The invites and wedding stationary used a mish-mash of upper and lowercase words in a font called Typeka. It was this font that was used to write the lyrics of the very poignant ‘first dance’ song – The Idea of Growing Old by The Features – onto the bottom tier of the cake. The castle silhouette is the same as the sign for the family farm where the wedding reception took place. I also made some miniature bunting propped up by some vintage knitting needles for the top of the cake, as the barn was also decorated in bunting (borrowed from the WI)!

The cake itself was chocolate sponge with cherry jam for the bottom tier, and a basic sponge with strawberry jam for the top tier. It was presented on a pretty cake stand which my Hubby picked up for 50 pence from the antique shop.
