Wedding Cake of the Week: March 31st – from Cupcakes by Louise
This week something quite quite different, but becoming more and more popular I’ve noticed… what I call a “ruffle truffle cake”.
This cake, by “Cupcakes by Louise” was (no doubt) the star of the show – after the bride of course – at a wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest, Hampshire. The bottom tiers, beautifully decorated with delicate rose swirls, are described by the baker as a 12 inch vanilla and a 10inch carrot cake and on the top a tower of 100 cake truffles infused with a selection of alcohol liquers. Utterly scrumptious and stunningly beautiful! If I were planning my wedding now, I’d seriously consider something like this – as it could easily double up as a wedding breakfast dessert.
I also adore that cake stand. Overall, there is an undeniable vintage feel to this cake, but those truffles lend a real contemporary twist – fabulous work I’m sure you’ll agree.
