Something Sweet.........

Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Continuing my wedding themed posts today to tell you about the cake!
(If I'm starting to bore you don't worry I'm nearly done!!)

No wedding is complete without a cake! We didn’t want to pay a fortune, I didn’t want anyone to have to go to any effort and I wanted something that could be cut and enjoyed on the day!

Good old Marks and Spencer came to the rescue with this little beauty!

We chose the sponge option with white chocolate fondant and roses (it’s also available in brown chocolate!), the best thing about getting a wedding cake from M&S is that even if the cake isn’t big enough to feed your number of guests you can buy extra cutting bars and they will never know!!!!!

I have to hand it to them it was really good value, a lot bigger than I thought and delicious, the roses were exquisite and it went with our theme perfectly!

Needless to say there was none left! Luckily James had thought ahead and had some sent to our room to enjoy with a cup of tea!

Yummy!

The break in blogging has thrown me out completely! I know I have missed several 'Happy Mondays' I am planning an extra special giveaway to make up to you all!!!

Watch out over the next few days!!!!

Lots of Love

Thats exactly what I would have wanted, something simple and not worth a fortune, and it still looks lovely!
No way we are getting bored, I love seeing little parts of your wedding each post:)

It's gorgeous, Kelly! The roses are stunning!

I had non-traditional cakes at my wedding: huge, round cakes with red roses over them. They were almond and amazing. I nearly cried for joy when I found out my mom had packed some for me and Luke. ;) That said, I was thrilled to read you and James got some with tea!

Lisa said...

Nothing wrong with M and S for your wedding cake, we had them too! Just plain and then the 'decoration' was a circle of baby mums like in my bouquet.
Not bored with wedding talk in the least!

What gorgeous flowers you had. I took an old 1940's wedding photo into the florist when I got married and asked if they could copy the bouquet. It came out a treat, just like yours. That cake look yummy too!

That was just the icing on the cake! M&S do wonderful cakes, sometimes if an order hasn't been picked up its cut up and put in the canteen for us to eat....so delicious, Lucey xxxxx
