This got me thinking about a wedding cake I made recently for a couple who wanted an entirely vegan cake. I remember my first experience of a vegan cake. It wasn’t great. So I jumped at the chance to prove that a ‘free from’ cake doesn’t have to be free from flavour! It was an opportunity to continue to challenge myself and quite frankly, it was a refreshing break from the norm.
The couple’s idea was very intriguing and exciting. Not only was their cake completely vegan but their cascading flowers were made solely from dried fruit! I thoroughly enjoyed making their wedding cake and the icing on the top (pun not intended) was their beautiful comments after their wedding which I am sharing with you today. They said:
“Thank you so, so much. It was stunning, exactly what I wanted on the day I married my best friend…the cake was amazing and we’ll be recommending you to anyone looking for a cake.” - Allan & Michelle
This is why I bake. To bring a little piece of happiness to my customers on their special day. As a baker, there is no greater reward.
