Winter Wedding: The cakes

Our cakes were amazing - Hilda from Magnificent Cakes in Birmingham did a fabulous job!

The brides cake was vanilla cake with buttercream frosting. It tasted so good! The cake was covered in edible snowflakes - it looked like snow had fallen all over the cake. The cake was placed on a glass cake stand with lights and small bits of babies breath underneath. I love, love, loved this cake design.

On the cake table we had our Waterford Lismore toasting flutes (one of wedding gift from my parents) and photos of my parents on their wedding day with both sets of grandparents in it and a photo of Bradley's parents' wedding with his parents and grandparents. And then of course my bouquet was placed on the cake table.

The groom's cake was....of course... a Michael Jackson cake. Chocolate cake with mint filling. This cake was a huge hit - not just for the design, but I also heard it was delicious. The only taste Bradley and I got of this cake was when we cut it and tasted a bite. Boo...we totally missed out on this cake. And while we missed out on the cake, someone saved 'Michael' for us. He's 'chilling' in our freezer right now. Bradley wants to preserve him.

And yes, that would be a glitter MJ glove from our dance worn by Bradley when cutting the cake.
