Wedding Cake & Cupcakes Order

I’m very grateful for every order I received as it mean a level of trust that the customer have. I received a call from customer-turn-friend one afternoon and ask if I can do wedding cake! I want to be frank and let her know I’ve not done any whole cake covered with fondant before so I suggest cupcakes instead. I really hesitate about taking on the order but she is really nice and encourage me to give this a trial and ask me not to get stress over it. And all I had was 5 days before delivery so it was planning and planning, lots of browsing and discussion with K.


The customer ask if I could do eggless cakes which I have never done before too! She have some colleagues who doesn’t take eggs and I really hope everyone have a slice of cake so I went round searching for an eggless cake recipe. I was lucky to pick up a vegan baking book from the library and the recipe look good, did a test-bake and got positive reviews from colleagues, they couldn’t tell that it’s eggless! The cupcake is moist but has a slight baking soda aftertaste which I adjusted on the actual day baking. So I have shortlist the recipes, have an idea how the cake should look like (I wanted to do sketch but didn’t have time) and so it’s now to action time! The flowers and butterflies are cut out 2 days before to leave it dry and the butterflies are brushed with luster dust to give the sweet shiny look.


It’s a butter cake based with orange flavoured buttercream and covered with fondant. The cupcakes are chocolate cupcakes (eggless).


I kept the color theme simple to just peach/pink and white with silver dragees.


And this is the center piece of the cake!


Wishing the couple a happy and blessed marriage!
