Putting the icing on the cake!

The excitement is mounting as we’re putting the final touches to the wedding preparations for my daughter and her partner. 
Almond Paste 
My big task has been to make sure I got the cake ready. Last week, I covered the cakes with Almond Paste, and this week with Dr Oetker icing, wrapping maroon ribbon to match the colour of the bridesmaids' dresses around each of the 3 tiers.

Kay at Flowers by Kay came up with some incredibly realistic cream roses and assembled the cake at Hodsock Priory  
The bride and groom have chosen a travel theme for their wedding as they've done a fair amount of travelling around the world together. The table plan is a world map, the table headers are postcards from places they have visited and the place names for the guests are luggage labels. They’ve even chosen ‘One more step along the world I go’ to sing at the wedding service.
We’re all looking forward to a fabulous day. All our fondest wishes and congratulations to our lovely couple. Grandma Abson would be very proud that her family baking legacy lives on!
