Pink and Gold wedding cake – A Venice elopement
Back in October I was asked by the lovely Emma-Jane of Emma-Jane Photography to take part in a special wedding set up In Venice, I jumped at the chance and quickly set about designing the cake and accompanying treats.
I had to think carefully, the cake needed to be small as it was travelling via Aircraft, but it also needed to be a showstopper. I was given a colour pallet of gold and pink
I came up with marbled pink design with a slight texture to the cakes icing, I then added edible gold leaf in random sections of the wedding cake following the natural line of the marbling, and there I had a beautiful Pink and Gold wedding cake.

To accompany the cake, I made cake pops that I dipped in chocolate coloured dusty pink, and I also made matching cake lolly’s and of course added some edible gold leaf to tie in the theme.
The cake was made the treats were ready, but now the issue was posting, I live in Heathfield, East Sussex. I had to first post to Emma-Jane, who would then fly with it to Venice, so I had to have some tough packaging! I bubble wrapped each item individually several times before putting in a heavy-duty box and padding the box out with extra bubble wrap and cardboard so nothing could move inside the box.
What a relief!! Everything arrived safely and went ahead without a hitch, this was a fun project to take part it, although I’m not sure if I’m cut out for the anxiety of posting cakes abroad frequently.
I look forward to working again with Emma – Jane and the dream team of wedding suppliers she put together.
