THE Wedding Cake! – Part 2

So much love for our first wedding cake post. We had so many people checking out the post that my little blog had the most ever ‘views’ on that day. If you have not seen the first part, you can read it here. Thank you everyone xx

This post will be filled with pictures just because no one would want me to describe the cake details when you can ogle at the pictures and the fine work done by The Designer Cake Company.

Here we go, will start with:

Cake specification

Two tier white ruffle and peony wedding cake

6” & 8” tiers to feed approximately 50


6” – lemon sponge filled with lemon buttercream and lemon curd and covered in white chocolate


8” – vanilla sponge filled with vanilla buttercream and raspberry conserve and covered in white

chocolate ganache



Both tiers iced in white with white fondant ruffles and a pale pink peony as per image provided

Design to include fondant buttons (mould by Baked By Me) Have a peek HERE.

Cake to sit on round cake board decorated to match theme and trimmed with ribbon

Happy couple with ruffle wedding cake

Am still in love with our wedding cake, thank you very much The Designer Cake Company for making it exactly the way I? wanted it to be. Hehe, the Mr just left me to it. Understand it was quite challenging to bring the cake in safely to The Cellar Door through the steep cobbled streets of Durham town centre and it was a scorcher of a day too.

Would love to ‘document’ and share more of our wedding day with you, so do leave a comment if you like posts like these. Was pretty much a DIY wedding reception in the evening and an intimate ceremony in the afternoon at Jesmond Dene.

    The cake and the personal pics of the reception and the two of you are gorgeous. The inspiration from the first post are great, I can see how the vintage, classic theme has carried through and I adore the peonies.
    Congratulations again on your wedding and I hope you both have a lifetime of happiness together.

    Congratulations Iris! A beautiful couple and a beautiful cake :). Ruffles are so on trend. Love them. Had one made for my birthday. The ruffles really draw such a “wow!”

    This is modern with a vintage touch and I like it a lot. I think the layered ruffles and the buttons are in a nice proportion and that’s why it works so well 🙂
