Golden Blue Tit Wedding Cake

We have been excited to create this wedding cake for months now. It encompasses everything we love in this year’s wedding cake trends; birds, ivory lace, gold sheens and soft blues! Our brief was to design, bake and decorate a Blue Tit themed wedding cake with ivory roses and blue hydrangeas pulled together with a vintage feel.

To achieve a lovely rustic and vintage look to the gold of the cake we painted the sheen onto the surface once iced with mustard coloured fondant. Using a large, soft paint brush and applying the sheen in three coats helps to get a luxurious taffeta look.

Every single flower on this cake was hand made by yours truly! There is a total of three large, fully bloomed ivory roses and forty individual hydrangea flowers. A total of three hours work!

The sweet little Blue Tits that adorn the middle of the cake were sculpted from modelling paste. We then hand painted them in shades of blue, turquoise, green, lemon and black.

The actual cake inside is a soft chocolate and vanilla marble cake with surprise shocks of pink, filled with vanilla pod infused buttercream and smoothed down with a delicious chocolate ganache!

From the adorable little hand painted birds to the taffeta inspired gold effect and vintage 50s/60s feel lace border we loved creating every part of this cake! It was definitely hard for us to see it leave.
