Wow!, we honestly cannot believe Sade’s wedding has come and gone, I mean it seems just like yesterday when she called us with excitement that she had just gotten engaged and wanted us to make her Introduction Cake.
In Nigeria, once there is any type of celebration, you can be rest assured that there will be a cake to cut, and the Cake has to look the part.
Sade sent us a cake design she wanted us to refer to and we were happy to make her own version of the design.

The wedding Cake! now the wedding has a story of it’s own, but let’s just say we learnt a whole lot of lessons making this cake.
A 4 Tier Cake baked in Multi-flavours. For the biggest tier, we had 2 layers of Vanilla cake, 1 layer Lemon cake and 1 layer of Strawberry cake, all filled and iced with Vanilla butter cream.
The 3rd tier was an all English Tea cake while the 2nd and 1st tier was a combination of Chocolate and Vanilla Cakes also filled and iced with Vanilla butter cream.
We covered the entire cake with a special technique to give the fondant cover a crackled effect and then we added shade and dimension with mate colors.
The overall look of the cake was really breathtaking.
Here she is, adorned with edible hand made sugar flowers, bunched berries and twigs made out of 18″ gauge wire rolled and stretched to give the swirly effect. We also added Wafer paper Ranunculus and Daisies.
We finished the design up with the cute Sugar mould Love birds to tie the whole cake design together.
Awww, the look of Love. How romantic.
Good news! We will be having a Live Demo Class where we will show you how to create the Crackled Wood effect like we have on this Rustic wedding Cake.
