Who doesn’t like a nice beach? No one that I know, which is just as well as we live on the Cornish coast! Lots of stunning beaches.
Although the wedding I did yesterday wasn’t actually on a beach, you could see the sea. It was in the grooms family back garden (field) with the most stunning views! And right in the next village to me, which was handy.
The cake was a beast! So heavy it took the groom, his mate from NZ, a girl guest and a trolley to get it from car to marquee! All involved thought this quite funny, and photos were taken. It really was quite a sight. Especially as the trolley then had to be carried over the grass. So the cake arrived in some style!
It was: Chocolate/salted caramel and ganache. Lemon and vanilla buttercream. And coconut/lime with pineapple buttercream.
No really! I live in Cornwall, but near the Devon border. And this means being in the middle of the jam/cream cream/jam debate. Something that is taken very seriously in these parts.
Today I did a cream tea wedding. Such a lovely idea, and it all went well. However. I had to do half the scones the Devon way (cream first) and half the Cornish way (jam first). And the Cornish ones went first! Several people commented, as there was family from both counties.
So today clotted cream became political!
(Thats my mum. She helped with the cream distribution)
And in the Sweet Temptations kitchen. Today I decided to play around with some ideas for cupcake toppers, with a romantic feel.
These would be pretty for a wedding, anniversary or engagement party. Or just to say you’re very special 🙂
How about a single cupcake with an engagement ring nestled into the topper. How adorable would that be?!
Or personalise them and turn them into a combined wedding favour and place setting?
