Allow a show-stopping confection to match the lively festivities at your Mehndi event
Who says a cake should be reserved just for the wedding day? With so many opportunities leading up to the Big Day itself, treat your loved ones to a slice of something scrumptious and spectacular from artisan Asian bakers, Vanilla Wish Cakes. This joyously colourful four-tiered design, finished with edible blue fondant matches the vibrant mood of the Mehndi party perfectly, and can be customized to coordinate with your theme or outfit. Each of the tiers of this innovative pillow cake is generously sized and finished with delicate roses and daisies on alternating corners – ensuring there’s plenty for everyone to have a second helping! This cake was created to showcase the vibrancy of the orders Vanilla Wish Cakes typically receive for mehndi parties. The colours requested reflect the theme of the party while the inclusion of metallic colours ensure there is no shortage of bling! Furthermore, brides-to-be can commission individual cupcakes topped with icing in various shades and flavours with gold beads, echoing the beadwork of the dress.
Use bright cloth and ornamental jewellery to decorate the table to give it that extra level of presentation and have platters placed around the room, or wrapped up in pretty boxes as a take home treat for your guests.
If you’re going for the classic colour palette of pastel for your engagement, put the icing on the cake with these pale and interesting creations. You could have one primary cake for the all-important cutting moment, and have mini versions dotted around the venue. The cupcakes, topped with beautiful buttercream swirls, will be a winner with all guests, and popular flavours include raspberry, lemon or the signature flavour, vanilla. The subtle colours along with lace, bows and delicate sugar flowers are perfect for any occasion but work particularly well here dusted with edible pearl shimmer.
Carefully iced and precision baked, this regal cake conveys a sense of occasion - the perfect addition to a traditionally religious ceremony. Taking inspiration from wedding jewellery designs, this luxurious cream, gold and red cake is truly a culinary masterpiece.
The traditonal wedding cake should be as elaborate as your outfit, and this creation is just that. A smooth layer of white fondant provides the background for intricate gold edible lace, while handmade sugar roses offer an alternative topper to a figurine bride and groom.
The lace is a great way of incorporating the intricate designs usually found on Asian bridalwear whilst maintaining the simplicity of the cake. Some edible gems add a little sparkle. This four-tiered cake consists of melt-in-the-mouth sponge with a layer of rich strawberry conserve and real vanilla bean buttercream, although flavourings and fillings can, of course, be adapted for the palate of each couple.
Use the embroidery of your outfit or your mehndi design as inspiration for the decor, and choose edible decorations such as handmade pearls to delight your wedding party.
Using different colours for the tiers of your cake makes a big statement, while sticking to simple white fondant keeps the overall look fresh and clean.
