The inspiration for Blair & Duncan’s Macaron Tower Wedding Cake was an Autumn Sunset Colour Palette. The story behind this cake is captured in my previous blog post. This post is to pay tribute to the magicians behind this wedding. We know that Blair magically captured Duncan’s heart before they began to plan a wonderful August wedding in Johannesburg. They chose as their wedding venue, the picturesque Memoire Wedding Venue.

Truly the most exquisite wedding bouquet I have ever seen created by Carol Anne Frey and then so perfectly photographed by Andre here.  These colours were the inspiration for Blair and Duncan’s Wedding Cake and Macaron Tower. I could not have asked for a more exciting colour combination. Carol Anne, your passion and love for flowers is captured so beautifully in this bouquet you so lovingly created for Blair and your  talent shows in your attention to every detail in the planning and decor for this wedding.

A huge thank you to Rebecca from The Crazy Lemon for this perfectly cut perspex cake topper. You were able to replicate the B & D initials exactly as they were printed on the wedding invitation. I gave them a quick coat of paint on the back and voila we had the matching colour.

I love how Andre got close up and personal here with my macarons capturing each colour tier …..

As usual Flavour Nation provided the awesome flavours that went into each macaron filling.

And of course the awaited cutting of the cake ….

I couldn’t have been asked to be part of a more gorgeous wedding than this and it was a pleasure to work with both Blair and her wedding planner, Carol Anne.

Thank you Blair for these kind words of thanks:

” Lisa, where do I begin! Thank you for the amazing cake and macarons. Everyone commented on how delicious they were, and they disappeared in no time. It looked so stunning, absolutely beyond our expectations.”
