On this day one of my very good friends married the man of her dreams at Orokonui Ecosanctuary surrounded by friends and family. They both hold nature close to their hearts so I couldn’t have pictured a more meaningful setting and perfect location for these too to wed. This beautiful part of New Zealand bush is the only part of mainland South island which native birds, animals and insects are able to live a safe life away from predators.
When Rosie described where she was getting married and the bouquet I knew pretty much instantly a cake that would fit perfectly into the scene and fit Rosie and partner Morgan perfectly. She wanted to have to flavours of cake one being my signature cake; Espresso and Dark chocolate Velvet cake. She was also interested in a white chocolate velvet cake for the middle tier. All together we decided on 3 tiers and the cake to have a naked look about it sandwiched together with a light velvet white buttercream which melted in your mouth, a fruit coulis to cut through the sweetness and to be finished with fresh flowers and succulents that matched the bouquet of Rosie and her bridesmaids.
Here is a collection of images of the making and finished decorated cake.
