A gorgeous hedgerow inspired wedding cake today made by the lovely Lizzie of Pass the Teapot – she can create one for you too if you ask.  Each cake sat on a tree trunk cake stand, made by a friend of the couple getting married, and Lizzie raided the country lanes to gather ivy and blackberry brambles to decorate the table…

Having recently spent a weekend staying at a woodland wedding venue in a tipi I felt this would be a fitting wedding cake.  I love that it is just shades of green and white, with those delicate tendrils of ivy wound round in a natural style.
