Navy and white birdcage wedding cake
I made this birdcage wedding cake for Siobhan and Darren last weekend. They live in England but got married in Leixlip. They loved the pale blue wedding cake that I had made for the Dublin Sugarcraft show but wanted it in a darker shade of blue, so it would look like the night sky. I think the navy icing actually looks pretty dramatic with the white details over it.
The bottom tier is a 10″ chocolate biscuit cake, covered in navy sugarpaste and white sugarveil icing. The top tier is three 7″ white chocolate and lime cakes stacked and carved into the birdcage shape. I piped the bars and scroll designs with royal icing, and handmade the hydrangea blossoms and roses from flower paste.
