Laura’s wedding had a light, airy feel to it, with touches of a nautical theme. She wanted coral to be incorporated into her cake design. We looked at pictures of piped coral, but then we suggested that we could add another dimension to her white on white cake. We used white chocolate to make coral pieces to adorn the cake. We did pipe coral, as well as bubbles, onto the cake, but then really made the idea of the coral pop with the white chocolate. The coral has a very organic look to it, as it is made by piping hot white chocolate over crushed ice, so each piece is definitely unique, unlike a store bought mold. The finished product has a very simple elegance to it, as white on white cakes often do, perfect for the big day.
The cake was a Lemon Pound cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream, a very fresh flavour for a summer wedding.
Congratulations, Laura and Gordon! 🙂
