Cake love: a big and blousy romantic pink peony wedding cake

Charlie / 21 September 2012

Peony country garden wedding cake

What a mouthful – a big, blousy, romantic, pink peony wedding cake.  But it is all of those things, and incredibly pretty.  I waver between loving cakes that are rustic, quirky and romantic – it’s a good job my wedding’s behind me and I don’t have to pick another wedding cake, I wouldn’t know where to start!

I have really loved seeing in the past year so many wedding cakes decorated with fresh flowers. This cake could have been a bit too girlie with the ruffly pink peonies, but the addition of some vibrant green foliage makes is more country garden than princess cake.

If you’re looking for a wedding cake made with love and excellent ingredients (local, fairtrade, organic, seasonal) then check out our wonderful selection of cake makers.  You can also find edible flowers – both crystallised and fresh – perfect for decorating  your wedding cake.
