A Watermelon Affair

Hi all,

I thought I would share my latest cake with you.  The very sweet bride to be came for a consultation with her sister and they were VERY precise about what they wanted; four individual wedding cakes, all with designs in a watermelon colour....right then best crack on!!!  

The largest tier was a vanilla sponge cake in a hexagon shape which was a first for me but it was so satisfying to ice, very clean edges.  This was then iced in ivory sugarpaste and piped with watermelon royal icing...took an age!  

The next tier was a 10 inch round rich fruit cake iced with marzipan and ivory icing, it was supposed to have an actual watermelon ribbon around the bottom but could I find one that matched in the UK...nope!  so I made a pretty one from florist paste instead and I think it completes the look nicely.  

Next was an 8 inch vanilla sponge cake with strips of ruffles...

...and finally a 6 inch rich fruit cake with the same design as the largest hexagon cake...phew!  

It was hard work as it was just so hot but its all done now and I was happy with the result.

Next up this week are my specialities...x3 tiered Victoria sponge wedding cakes...

...some pretty vintage cupcakes...

 ...and a batch of melt in the mouth buttermilk scones, I can't wait to get started.  Oh and just because its starting to become a little tradition, here is my little pudding, Henry, he came along to set the cakes up with us and was so good.  Love him :)

Thanks for reading.
