A Pacific Wedding Cake

DSC_0057 (1)

This little cake is going on a flight today with friends who are attending their son’s wedding. A short flight thankfully to the Great Barrier Island which lies just off the East coast of Auckland (20 mins by plane maybe, I have only been by boat). It’s a beach wedding and the request was for something ‘untraditional’ to match the mood and venue.  Looking at the weather forecast for the next few days it will be Pacific sunny days too.

The cake has a chocolate fudge base and lemon yoghurt top, no recipe today sorry just a pic. As I started to place the flower motifs onto the cake I thought..OMG, it’s going to look awful, nothing like the picture they showed me but once all together I think it looks pretty good. It’s a gift from the parents of the groom and the wedding couple haven’t seen it yet, I hope they like it.

      • I’m curious….what would it cost for you to bake a cake, that exact cake, and ship it to Sugarloaf Key Florida?

        Hi Jueseppi, I don’t think it would travel too well that far. This one was being hand carried so quite safe in transport. The cake is probably 8kg and in two cake tins. If you showed the picture to a good cake maker I’m sure they could replicate it. I made my own stencils out of card. Failing that, if we come to the USA I’ll make you one :0)

  2. So pretty! Love the two separate flavours(not a huge chocolate fan so lemon would be a treat ) well done, lucky couple xx

      Carrying them your self isn’t too bad you treat them like your baby but you are sure how they will fare in others hands. Fondant is pretty robust though, not like some of the delicately iced cakes you make. I once made 2 foot croquembouche and it had to travel 30km, surprisingly they are sturdy things.

    What a stunning cake. Did you make the flowers from rolled fondant, cut by hand with your card stencil? I am sure it was a great hit at the wedding. Love it.

      Hi Amy, yes the flowers are made from pre coloured rolled fondant cut by hand around card stencils we made. Little more time consuming than flower cutters! Might have to go into business making them ;o)

  18. That is such a bright ray of tropical sunshine prettiness. I’m so over winter already. Loving the chocolate fudge & lemon cakes idea too. I’d have a slice of each! ;)
