Megan and Todd came for their tasting without really knowing how they wanted their cake to look. When we asked them what their decorations were going to be, they told us that they were using stacks of antique books for their centrepieces. (Sweet story behind that dating back to their first date.) So it was promptly suggested that we replicate a stack of antique books for their cake. Todd and Megan both really liked that idea. So we left the book titles up to them (love the choices they made!), and they left the rest up to us. The only request was that we use shades of blue and green to coordinate with their wedding colours.
Todd and Megan chose Vanilla Bean Pound Cake filled with Vanilla Bean Buttercream and Salted Caramel for all the tiers(so delicious!). We then covered each tier with tinted fondant, and dusted them with petal dust. The books were finished off with hand painted titles (not stencilled) which took a lot of time and patience, but really paid off in the end. This is one of our favourite cakes to date!
Thanks and congratulations, Megan and Todd! 🙂
