Birds Of A Feather Photo Shoot – Cakes & Cookies

Just over a year ago I received an email from a group of wedding professionals explaining that they were planning a post-wedding celebration photo shoot for Mandy & Mark. They asked if I would be interested in providing a cake for the shoot.

The theme for the shoot was to include birds and subtle shades of Spring/ Summer.
After looking through the mood boards that the girls had come up with I decided that the colour palette lent itself well to a romantic, peachy, floral two-tier wedding cake, complemented by some pretty cupcakes decorated with doves and delicate flowers.
I also decided to attempt some iced cookies, as I had recently found a beautiful dove cookie cutter which I thought would complement the theme nicely.

I love this soft peach colour, and the cascading flowers – so romantic!
This was my second attempt at creating a rose with Florist Paste, using the skills I picked up from my cake decorating classes with Mrs Jones.

The Cupcakes

As for the cupcakes, I thought these little dove cutters were just perfect for the theme of this shoot.
To tie in with the cake, half of the cupcakes were adorned with the same flowers as the tiered cake.

The Cookies

This was my first attempt at iced cookies… The hearts with polka dot decoration were pretty easy to do, and am pleased with how they turned out.
