Hello! I’m so sorry for the radio silence over here on the blog.
I was super busy planning my engagement party and making my cake and dessert table! And I’m so excited to be finally sharing all the photos with you.
I made a two tier coffee caramel praline layer cake. It had 6 layers of white chocolate coffee caramel mud cake, was filled with macadamia praline coffee buttercream and got coated in vanilla bean buttercream before being finished with some fresh blooms!
Back left were my favourite, the chocolate hazelnut choux. Think Nutella. Think ferrero rocher. YUM.
I’m super grateful to my beautiful MOH and gorgeous Mum for helping me set up! We were down to the wire and they were so amazing, drying and arranging ivy, perfectly laying out each tiny dessert canapé and placing every individual edible flower amongst the sweets. THANK YOU! I could not have done it with out you.
To the left of this photo we have blueberry friands (made my Mr Man’s mum – thank you!!) and tiny, snow white Greek almond shortbread cookies, which my grandmother so kindly made.
Bottom right is a sea of my raspberry and ricotta pavlovas!
Each little pavlova was made with a raspberry meringue, soft on the inside and crisp on the outside, filled with whipped ricotta cream and raspberry coulis, then topped with one and a half raspberries and an edible flower.
I needed something fresh and refreshing in the dessert table mix so I made these little lemon meringue tarts.
Each tart is made up of a disc of lemon polenta shortbread topped with torched swiss meringue, lemon curd, lemon balm and an edible flower petal.
It was so super satisfying to plan each individual dessert, bring them to life and then to see the final table come together. It was stressful too, but once it was assembled I could relax, have some champagne and watch all our guests enjoy the desserts.
I promise that I will never make my own wedding cake though. If I become deranged enough over the next 18 months to change my mind, someone please slap me. X
