A glorious Brighton bandstand wedding cake

Wedding cake

This weekend I had the honour of doing the cake of a friend of mine to her long term beau, Amber Waterfield and Nathan McAllister. They had an alternative wedding day that really suited them, the ceremony took place on a bandstand on Brighton beach with the food and drinks at a local restaurant, Silo, which prides itself on using local ingredients and creating no waste (I even had to take my cake boxes home!). The weather was amazing, not a cloud in the sky! You can see from the photos how achingly cool they looked with Nathan rocking a pink blazer and boat shoes, Amber in her charity shop dress (a girl after my own heart!)…

Amber said I could pretty much do whatever I wanted which was great but equally nerve racking. I created this three tier cake, the top layer was chocolate, the middle layer was salted caramel and the bottom was raspberry and coconut. I covered it in a Keralan vanilla bean buttercream, then decorated with home tempered white chocolate shards, fresh wild flowers and blackberries.
