The Wedding (cake)

After a whole week of brilliant sunshine and high temperatures, the heavens opened on Genna’s wedding day.  It rained and thundered throughout the entire wedding!  But no-one cared a jot.  The day could not have been more beautiful. 

Way too tired to give details.  The pictures say everything.  🙂




An enormous thank you to the owner and staff of Aswanley for making Gen and Keith’s day so incredibly special.  🙂

    How lovely to see your smiling face in there, too.

    You see, a Scottish setting for a wedding is far more romantic than an Australian one. Perhaps we should elope…

    Pille – Thank you! I was really pleased with it in the end. 🙂


    Do you remember, right at the beginning, I suggested to you (wrongly, it turned out) that, if you were having trouble with making a cake, that you might find it easier to make a pile of cupcakes? That’s what my nephew went for at his wedding, also on Saturday (I had no idea the two weddings were the same day) … made and decorated by his cousin

    That’s two couples with fantastic friends prepared to give freely of their time


  15. Lore – It was either the cake or the wine, anyway!

    Helen – Lol! It was a great day. 🙂

    Joanna – I saw that picture yesterday (thought I left a comment… ) and it was beautiful! Very, very cute indeed.
