Living and working in the west end of Glasgow, I've always been aware of the exceptional Jordana Events & The Bridal Garden in Great Western Road Glasgow. Their stunningly beautiful couture wedding dresses and lavash floral displays in the shop window would always catch my attention as I went past. Jordana creates extravagant weddings at the highest level, and it's no wonder she's made a name for herself as having the best bridal shop in Glasgow.
I was absolutely over the moon when Jordana asked me to create a collection of spectacular, luxury wedding cakes to display in her shop. I knew immediately I wanted to create the most elaborately detailed sugar flowers display on a show-stopping wedding cake.
The flowers took over a week to make, with each petal being cut, veined, wired, dried, brushed with the faintest neutral colours and then fixed together. It's a real labour of love! They were fixed to the wedding cake in a spectacular double cascade, in a loose, ornamental style. I used mixed-height tiers to give an elegant silhouette, it's all in the small details which attract the eye. I'm so pleased with the result, it's an undeniably high-end, luxury wedding cake which looks beautiful.
For my second wedding cake, I wanted to add some texture to the icing and go for a pure, clean white on white finish.
I made the bas relief in a woodland style, with little acorns and flowers and leaves. I like the contrast between the decor being natural and ornamental, and all the little details that draw you in closer to take a second look. I used mixed height tiers again, this time also incorporating square tiers.
The third cake was designed for a styled shoot which is set for publication soon, so I'll chat more about that later! Here's a wee close up in the meantime :)
