Cake/Dessert Tables are currently really popular in the US an Australia and, of course, they're starting to feature in weddings over here. I was delighted when Sarah came to me with the idea of creating a rustic looking one as I've been wanting to do one for a while. Since I posted it a couple of months ago, lots of people have asked me about it so I thought I'd give you some close-up shots and tell you what the different components were.
First up is the main cake. It consisted of vanilla and lemon sponges and a carrot cake all finished with a rough buttercream finish. It was topped off with a some cute little cake bunting which said, "Just married." The fabulous tree trunk stand was lovingly made by Sarahs dad and the flowers were added by McGarry Flowers.
Sarah is a big fan of Terrys chocolate orange so she opted for my Orange Truffle Cake as one of her cakes. I decorated the top with mini Terrys Chocolate Orange to finish it off.
Another chocolate cake, this time my Rich Chocolate Cake, finished with belgium chocolate truffles. Sarah and her family had tasted this at her brothers wedding last year and loved it so she opted for this to be one of her own cakes.
Cute mini white chocolate and raspberry cupcakes with little cupcakes picks. Once again, Sarah's Dad did a fine job with the tree trunk slices for lower level stands.
Vanilla cake pops. I was particularly pleased with how these turned out as I don't do a lot of cake pops. I tied a bit of twine to each of these for a rustic look.
I left the caike table without any flowers, ready for Mrs McGarry to come and work her magic and magic she did! I think anyone will agree from the first photo that she did a fabulous job. A huge thank-you also goes to 'The Lous' for the fantastic photo of the whole setup - I can always rely on these guys to get me a great photo.
