I love doing wedding cakes. Whole heartedly. The satisfaction and the gratitude that comes from the bride has always warmed my heart.
This year is turning out to be extremely lovely. A year of firsts if I may say so. I successfully ran my first workshop and I see the ladies have determination and zeal to work harder. It’s the first time since I started baking that I’m booked weeks in advance. This will turn out to be a fantastic year, God willing.
When the lovely bride Wawira came for a sample, she was so warm and her smile just made you want to keep talking. She immediately settled in me as her baker and when I saw the design, I was immediately excited to do it but at the same time I started panicking wondering how I would execute it.
She loved it! She loved the flower and this boosted my confidence in doing her cake higher and higher.
I wanted to start on this cake on Thursday morning, so that I could bake in the morning, and start decorating it in the afternoon then do the ruffles on Friday. Kplc on the other hand had a different idea. I woke up at 6am to find no electricity so I just made my fondant. And waited. Lights didn’t come until 3 pm. My schedule was severely distorted as I now had to wait for cakes to bake and cool before starting work on them.
The parents cakes were both Fruit cakes
The top tier cake and the third tier cake (from the top) were both Passion cakes
The second tier cake was a Butterscotch cake
The bottom tier cake and the extra cakes for the guests were Vanilla Cakes
