It's funny when we first got engaged I said that I would compromise on the cake and cars. For me they were not a priority and when you're trying to budget, I felt they were least important. However, when you start doing some research and stalking Pinterest you start to come up with lots of elaborate and expensive ideas.

Whilst at a Wedding Fair in the Evergaldes Hotel we found Cakes by Miriam. Her work was beautiful with lots of design options and an endless number of amazing flavours. We decided to visit Miriam in her quaint workshop and kitchen. Your wedding cake should be ordered around 6-14 months before your big day to allow your cake designer to prepare.

We sat and discussed design ideas and looked at lots of the ideas she had. When faced with dozens of beautiful's no doubt you are drawn towards the largest, most elaborate and ornate. We chose a five tier cake with a flower surround. At this stage we were not sure about our colour scheme and we agreed to confirm that later.

Miriam had made lots of samples for us to try and Lukas absolutely loved every flavour. We decide to go for cookies and cream, vanilla and red velvet. These flavours did not disappoint on the day and so many people commented on how delicious it was. We learned a lot about wedding cakes that evening. We were blissfully unaware that some tiers of the wedding cake would be fake and some real. We had two real tiers and two large tray bakes. This was ample as we still had some left over for our after party which was great! 

Our cake was white with gold as the focus colour and we were very pleased with how it looked on the day! Miriam transported the cake and was so easy to work with in the run up to the wedding. Cake design requires creativity, patience and artistic flair, all of which Miriam possesses.

Surrounding our cake table was photographs of our parents and grand parents on their wedding day. This personal touch really drew people to the table. Behind the table we had the Fairy Tale back drop by Lily Annabella and the LOVE sign in front from Tyrone Wedding Services.

Below I've included some inspiration:

Cake tables are becoming a vocal point of any wedding venue. I love the cake pops on the table below created by Kat. It's so different and something your guests will LOVE!
