We went to a garden party wedding last Sunday in France and the wedding cake was cupcakes! My favourite!
The Mother of the Groom, Pauline, made an amazing selection which were decorated with mini flowers, butterflies and glitter in foil cases. The chocolate and vanilla sponges were arranged on cake stands and the relaxed, pretty, summery style fit the garden party wedding perfectly. The cutting cake on top was gluten free for the bride!
There was also a mini Croquembouche, which is the French traditionally wedding cake made from filled choux buns stacked in a pyramid and held together with caramel sauce. Traditionally, the top of the croquembouche would be hit with a sword, silver mallet or even a champagne bottle, cracking the top off while the bridesmaids hold up the corners of the table cloth to catch the pieces.
I had 2 cupcakes and a piece of croquembouche and it was all tres bien!
