Karel and Amanda were married early in September in the tranquil and beautiful grounds of Glen Afric with their close family and friends and of course the gentle company of the Glen Afric wild life. It was a complete surprise for me that I was able watch as this wonderful couple arrived to their reception set out in the shaded gardens of Glen Afric. They were accompanied by a mother elephant and her 2 babies who then stood and fed quietly as the couple had photographs taken with their guests. What a peaceful way to begin a wedding celebration.

From the moment I met Karel and Amanda at our first ‘cake consultation’, I knew that taking part in their celebration would be perfect. It did help that they were both enticed by my cupcake testers with their pretty heart toppers and that they loved the idea of being represented in sugar on their wedding cake. They were a fun couple to reproduce in sugar, Karel strong and dapper in his wedding suit and cream cravat and Amanda petite in her beautiful white rouched lace wedding dress and gorgeous blonde curls. They sat very happily on their wedding cake iced to suit the natural theme of their wedding.

Wishing this special couple many years of holding each other’s hands, sharing gentle loving gestures and laughter as they start this exciting chapter in their lives.

The matching cupcakes I iced with a dreamy coffee buttercream swirl and added the sugar paste embossed hearts and rolled roses that Amanda chose in cream and burgundy. Tiny non pareils and dragees sprinkled into the folds of the buttercream completed the look of the cupcakes and  Champagne pearls added the final touch around the bottom of the cake. Dainty filigree cupcake holders were perfect for these cupcakes which I placed tiered below the cake on a natural log stand. Thank you Karel and Amanda for trusting me on your wedding day and for being such a delightful couple to create for.
