Putting the icing on the cake!

Kay finally assembling the cakes at Hodsock Priory

The excitement is mounting as we’re putting the final touches to the wedding preparations for my daughter and her partner tomorrow. Actually, yesterday was a breeze as it was full on relaxation at the Imagine Spa Knaresborough , enjoying the amazingly warm sunny weather we’re experiencing here for late September. The Bride, Chief Bridesmaid and Mother of the Bride had a superb day out being pampered and indulged after all the hectic tasks and endless lists.

The bride and groom have chosen a travel theme for their wedding as they have 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’ as one of their hymns at the church.

My big task has been to make sure I got the cake ready. I showed you how to make  Almond Paste to cover the celebration cake. Earlier this week, I covered the cakes with Dr Oetker icing  and tied ribbon to match the colour of the bridesmaids dresses around each of the 3 tiers. Kay at Flowers by Kay has come up with some incredibly realistic cream roses and has assembled the cake at Hodsock Priory  

We’re all looking forward to a fabulous day. All our fondest wishes and congratulations to our lovely couple. I’m sure Grandma Abson would be very proud that her baking legacy lives on!
