Here's what Sarah of Cakes by Mrs F had to say of this beautiful rustic wedding day at Stanton Manor Hotel...
"I first met Zoe & Howard at a wedding show in September. When I later met Zoe and Howard for a cake consultation, they explained how important it was to them that the cake looked like a cake. They wanted their family and friends to really want to eat it so it had to look delicious!
Taking their brief and combining our ideas, I designed them a cake that was naked and dressed with fresh fruit. The advantage of making a naked cake is it can be baked the day before a wedding so I know my customers are getting the freshest cake possible.
Part of what makes my cakes so different to others is the unique selection of flavours I offer my couples. I'm big on flavours and love to put ingredients together that I know will complement one another and create something quite amazing! I also love to work with my clients and experiment with new ideas and provide them with their specific requests. On this particular wedding we decided on the following:
The bottom tier - A light lemon sponge with a filling of homemade lemon curd and lemon swiss meringue.
The middle tier - A chocolate fudge cake with a vanilla swiss meringue filling.chocolate fudge cake with a vanilla swiss meringue filling.
The top tier - A orange sponge with homemade orange marmalade and orange swiss meringue.
Zoe told me she was ordering a bespoke cake topper as a little surprise for Howard as the couple had been together for a LONG time - It was a surprise for me too! When it arrived I thought it was fabulous and a perfect additional to the cake. It made it completely personalised to them and a gorgeous addition to their wedding day. I chose to place the topper to the front of the cake instead of the standard placing on the top as I felt it made more of a statement and set the cake off 'just right'.
To complete the naked cake, I dressed it with fresh fruit and placed it on a log cake stand which finished the rustic look off wonderfully. The overall styling of the cake suited Zoe and Howard's wedding day superbly and fitted well into this lovely country hotel setting."
