An adaptation of a previous Sweet Tiers design, towering tiers of vanilla butter cake filled with white chocolate ganache coupled with white chocolate and raspberry cake. Stencilled damask pattern encircles the bottom tier and the Sweet Tiers signature blossom booties – hundreds of delicate hand cut blossoms, dusted in hues of pink – feature on the top of this pretty cake.
I often collaborate with some of Melbourne’s most talented stylists in creating beautiful dessert tables for christenings. I had the pleasure of collaborating with the lovely and talented Thetis Sardo of Sooti Events for this pretty and elegant display to celebrate the christening of little Paris.
I never tire of making these beautiful (if I do say so myself!) blossom booties. I first made these for my eldest daughter’s Christening 6 years ago and have made them several times since. They certainly do make a statement up there on top of the cake and they are also a lovely keepsake. I still have Julia’s. They look as lovely as ever! This is actually a two tier adaptation of that original design.
My husband and I had the honour of being little Amelie’s godparents last weekend. I found some adorable hand made owls from Red Stitch Designs via madeit.com.au. Super cute yes?
So, of course, I wanted to incorporate an owl in the design of the cake for this special occasion. Amelie’s mum LOVES cats and asked if I could perhaps include a cat somewhere. So, I got to thinking…hmmmm… an owl and a cat, an owl and a cat…hmmm – of course! (slaps the forehead) The Owl and the Pussycat!
This cake was created for my cousin’s little girl’s 1st birthday celebration which took place in a local park.
In coming up with a concept for the cake, I was told that little Christina loved birds. So, putting these two elements together, this design was born.
A garden party theme incorporating a palette of muted green, soft hues of apricot, pink and cream was to be staged for Lucy’s 5th birthday. Sweet Tiers designed a cake that took all of these elements and created a watering can cake.
