Alice in Wonderland inspired wedding cake

In November, I was asked to create a traditional four tier cake, styled with Grecian pillars for a very lovely couple. However, this cake was to have a twist. With their wedding venue being the Islington Metal Works the cake had to be quirky and fun. 

So.... between the burgundy, and scarlet sugar roses, I included roses with whimsical faces, and a handcrafted antique Pocket watch.

Of course, included was a little 'garcon' rose too.

Included in the design were hand cut sugar paste lace motifs and the couples monogram hand painted directly onto the cake.

What was so wonderful about this cake, is that we actually used the pillars from the bride's grandmothers wedding! And I love the topper she supplied.

To complete the wedding table, we also created yummy pocket watch biscuits.
