Heather’s Autumn Harvest

This cake slipped through my fingers last year, as it was our last cake of the year, and I neglected to post it. So, many months later, and at the beginning of a new wedding season, here’s a little throwback to the fall of last year.

Heather and Allan had a spectacular venue (his parents’ home) and needed a cake that fit the bill. The reception tent was in a cornfield, and was decorated in fall colours. It was stunning, and the cake needed to stand against that backdrop. Heather and Allan opted to have their cake decorated with fall leaves- oak and maple, as well as acorns. We used gum paste to make these and individually painted each one with food colouring. We also used burlap ribbon at the base of each tier and to cover the cake board.

They chose Vanilla Bean buttercream all round, with Vanilla Bean pound cake, except the middle tier, which was Decadent Chocolate. Delicious combinations!

A belated congratulations, Allan and Heather! 🙂 (To view photos of the wedding, wedding venue, and our cake, you can go to Nicole Lapierre Photography.)
