Valerie & Darraghs Wedding June 13th 2015

Valerie contacted Cake Rise about booking her Wedding Cake towards the end of 2014.Wedding Cakes Sligo Her Brother & Sister-in-Law had used us a number of years earlier for their Wedding Cake.

A Wedding Cake consultation was booked for January 10th 2015,  Valerie knew  exactly what she liked and it didn’t take her long to decide on a previous Wedding cake of ours as her inspiration. A three tier round ivory cake design was chosen, decoration cascading ivory & pink large sugar roses with additional smaller roses & blossom flowers, finally elegant stencilling around the sides of the tiers. Valerie opted to have three different flavours using Chocolate Biscuit, Red Wedding Cakes SligoVelvet and Fruit cake.

As one of Valerie & Darragh’s flavours was a fruit tier, work began on their Wedding Cake some weeks before their Big Day to allow the fruit tier time to mature. Their Chocolate Biscuit & Red Velvet tiers would be baked only a few days before their Wedding.

With the week of their Wedding already upon us the pressure is on to make all the handmade sugar flowers required (and a few extra in case of any breakages),  baking their Chocolate Biscuit & Red Velvet tiers so they are as fresh as possible. All three tiers need to be covered with almond icing then fondant to achieve a lovely smooth finish. Once they are dry the tricky process of placing all the sugar flowers can take place,  a lot of time, skill and patience is required for this part but is always worth the effort.

A few final touches and their Wedding Cake is ready to be boxed for delivery to Kilronan Castle on the morning of their Wedding. Always a nerve wrecking journey Wedding Cakes Sligo Irelandwith a Wedding cake on board. Valerie & Darraghs was none the less uneventful, heart in mouth, thankfully 30 minutes later we arrive safely at Kilronan Castle. Once set-up in the beautiful function room, relief, joy and a great sense of achievement, phew……..

Wishing Valerie & Darragh all the best for their future. Thank-you for choosing Cake Rise to make your Wedding Cake.
