As we’re heading into the week of celebrating all things love and Valentine’s Day, I wanted to share a cake with you that was so romantic it would make you swoon on the spot.
I’m pretty sure this is the cake.
This gorgeous four-tier creation is from Hockleys Cakes in the United Kingdom and they call it the “Blenheim Cake.”
This cake is all about romance and flowers and love, and I adore everything about it.
I love the square tiers on this cake – I’m a big fan of non-traditional shapes when it comes to wedding cakes. (This should come as no surprise, since my wedding cake featured eight heart-shaped tiers!) I think the square tiers give it a nice, modern contemporary feel.
The gorgeous and simple white icing with the pearls around each tier give this cake a dramatic and modern look.
But what I love most is the cascade of flowers down the side of the cake. The bride wanted the flowers to replicate her bouquet – which is a genius idea in my book! Hockleys created these flowers with hand crafted white, pink, and violet sugar roses and other dainty buds.
It’s incredibly romantic, don’t you think?
A big thanks to Hockleys Cakes for sharing this creation with us!
