MAKE THIS: KATHERINE SABBATH INSPIRED CAKE!

Katherine Sabbath Inspired Cake tutorial katy perry themed decorating cake White-7

First things first, I just want to say that in no way could we ever be as good at decorating cakes as the epic Katherine Sabbath is, but since it’s my birthday today we thought we would give it a dam good go! These were the colourful results and if anything it’s a cake that Katy Perry herself would be proud of! If you’d like to have a go at making your own inspired cake then here’s how you can do it….

YOU WILL NEED:

A four tier cake in whatever flavour you like with a crumb coat. (you can learn how to crumb coat here) // 500g butter // 1k icing sugar // Splash of milk // food colouring (we chose pink and blue but the blue turned out green!) // 200g chopped white chocolate // 200ml double cream // Sprinkles, sweets and lollipops for decoration //

STEP 1:

The first thing you need to do is whip up your buttercream! So whisk together your butter (softened is easer) with your icing sugar until light and fluffy then gradually add in your food colouring until you’re happy with the colour.

STEP 2:

Using a knife or a spatula, apply your buttercream to the entire of your cake making it as smooth as possible. We did the sides first then finished off on the top of the cake. Once you’re done pop your cake in the fridge for an hour.

A Charming English Barn Wedding: Emma & Scott

A Charming English Barn Wedding

When I was first introduced to Emma and Scott’s story I had a very deja vu moment. In fact I had to double check the couples names as I really thought I was reading the story of how one of my best friends had first met her husband.

Any way I digress. Today’s wedding has some of the most beautiful styling I have ever seen in a barn! Beautiful rustic floral displays, pretty pastel bunting, loads of fairy lights and all brought to life with the most fantastic photography! What really struck me with Emma and Scott was their desire to make sure everyone shared some part in their special day, holding a wedding in both New Zealand and back here in the UK, to make sure their most nearest and dearest could celebrate with them. Their first ceremony was held in New Zealand so it was only right that parts of that were included back home. In honour they had the best bottle labels made up, using an image from the original ceremony, along with the cutest surprise from Emma’s brothers, which featured a video of sweet messages from their family and friends back in New Zealand!

Here is Emma and Scott’s story…

First let us tell why we think the tweetups are so darn awesome and so hugely important when it comes to networking.
