Anastasia came to me with the most beautiful watercolour sketches she had painted of her dream cake. It was a design I had never seen before and I was instantly hooked and excited to bring her vision to life. The structure of the cake was totally different as each tier had a slice removed to reveal the internal sugar flowers bursting out as if the entire cake is filled with delicate Peonies instead of soft fluffy sponge.
The cake was to be set up in the ceremony room once the vows had been exchanged and the guests had retired into the gardens at That Amazing Place for drinks and canapés. It was wonderful to see a beautiful fusion of Scottish and Russian cultures perfectly combine at this show stopping wedding.
The cake has since proved a firm favourite with couples visiting Fifi's Cakery and has been recreated a number of times.
