This wedding cake needed to be (in the words of the bride) “traditional with a quirky twist” and to incorporate the feeling of a vintage classic wedding cake with the edginess ofÂ some classic rockabilly tattoo designs. The colour scheme was to be in keeping withÂ the vintage theme to fit in with theÂ venue decor.
So nothing too garish but a definite nod to the tattoo designs that the couple loved and both felt reflected them and their individuality.
I absolutelyÂ relished this brief and with all of the ideas given to me by Helen IÂ came up with the sketch to the left which the bride and groom loved.
As often happens the design evolved slightly from the very first sketch to the finished piece but all the elements remained the same;
On setting up the cake I was blown away by how stunning the venue looked.
Vintage chinaÂ sat at each place setting whilstÂ skullÂ centrepieces sat on the tables. A Mr & Mrs Skull, complete with top hat and birdcage veil, sat proudly on the top table, surveying the room.
Handmade heart garlands were strung across the ceiling, sheet music backed the seating planÂ and vintage wedding photos of the bride’s and groom’s parents sat at the cake table.
It was an absolute triumph of design and planning and I felt so happy to see the cakeÂ nestling amongst it all.
Congratulations, Helen and Jamie, on your wedding day and also for surpassing your own brief of traditional with a quirky twist. ThanksÂ forÂ choosing Mamma Jamma to make your cake, it was an absolute pleasure.
