Lilac and Lillies Wedding Cake

Wedding Cake Project Brief

Lilac and purple tones will always be a popular choice for wedding colours. Our bride knew she wanted to include a purple tone into her cake but wasn't sure how. After discussing her ideas, she knew she didn't want an all white cake. So we decorated this cake in a soft lilac sugarpaste and matched the flowers to the lovely lilies she would be carrying in her bouquet.

How We Made The Wedding Cake

We make all the flowers and decorations for our cakes in advance by hand cutting out individual petals and attaching them to a wire, before putting them all together to make a single flower. Each of our flowers can take several hours to create and so we work on them in advance and bake the cake later for freshness. Once the cakes are baked and cooled, we fill them with the choice of filling and cover them in lilac sugarpaste. We colour our paste from white to achieve the nearest colour match. The cakes are then stacked and we take time to position each sugar flower on the cake in an attractive way. Finally we added a lovely lace ribbon to the tiers and the cake was complete!

Wedding Cake Ingredients

For this cake we used our traditional vanilla sponge, filled with jam and buttercream. For the bottom tier, we added raspberries to the mix and the cake is filled and coated with a soft creamy white chocolate ganache.
