Cake love: a tiered chocolate cake with nasturtiums and Sylvanian Families cake topper


Nasturtium wedding cake with Sylvanian Family cake topper

So I’ve spent ages umming and ahhing between two weddings on which to share for this week’s Cake Love feature.  In the end, I’ve opted for the one with a splash of colour as the past couple of cakes have been quite neutral.  It’s also wonderfully evocative of summer – just look at those hot red and orange nasturtiums (and edible of course!).

On closer inspection I noticed that each tier of the cake is a chocolate shade lighter, which is a nice touch, and who could resist the Sylvanian Families bunny couple cake topper!

I hold my hands up and stand guilty on this blog of indulging in childhood memories and whims, I’ve more than once mentioned my childhood love of Brambly Hedge.  I was also a massive Sylvanian Families fan, I had a little cottage and the gypsy caravan and horse.  My Sylvanian Families were forever getting married, I just wish I’d thought of using them as wedding cake toppers for our wedding!

Do share you guilty secrets here if you too were a fan of Sylvanian Families or Brambly Hedge! Which were your favourite families? (Any excuse to talk childhood toys and memories!)
