Vintage Wedding cakes are hugely popular and making this for a fantastic couple was an absolute pleasure.
To create this vintage style wedding cake it featured sprays of handmade sugar flowers in a range of pinks, greens and yellows. the top and base of the cake were surrounded by these flowers making every angle of the cake from around the room beautiful. Calley's Cakes made small blossom branches of white and yellow sugar flowers which added some movement to the design as well as the delicate pink sugar sweet pea stems and green hydrangea bunches. These were carefully arrange to look natural as if trying to poke through and grow from the cake itself. The main focal flowers were large green sugar clematis, sugar pink roses in a variety of stages from buds to fully open, red sugar peonies and a selection of graceful Cala lily's. These we added so that no one flower stood out and resembled a cottage garden look.
To create a backdrop for the sugar floral sprays we hand painted stems and grass using edible paint and added small sugar pink blossoms to two tiers of the five tier cake.
The cake inside was as varied as the flowers on it. The top was a fruity mango and passion fruit cake, the next a moist coffee and walnut cake with rich coffee buttercream, the middle tier featured my flavourful carrot cake with cream cheese flavoured buttercream and the base tiers were my very popular chocolate and salted caramel and my delicious cherry bakewell spongecake. Each tier was roughly 5" tall making this five tier wedding cake over 2ft tall and with stand and floral topper nearly 3ft tall!
The wedding was situated in the amazing Worthing Pier's Southern Pavilion a grade II listed building at the very end of Worthing Pier with a 1930's Art Deco design it is a perfect venue for those who love vintage style and the food catered by the delectable Hardings Catering was reportedly delicious!
The venue decor was one of the most uniquely beautiful I have come across and believe me as a company who deliver over 40 wedding cakes a year I've seen a lot! Betty Love Vintage created a true vintage look that was spectacular from the floral chair covers, vintage suitcases, handmade bunting, vintage crockery and home grown cottage flowers from the Sussex Cutting Garden the whole venue was transformed into the perfect Sussex vintage wedding.
