Shannon and Aaron's Barley Twist Wedding Cake at Cooling Castle Barn
Shannon and Aaron were married at the beautiful Cooling Castle Barn in the spring of 2017.
They chose a 4-tier square wedding with the tiers off set to each other (I call this a Barley Twist), one of our popular designs. Shannon and Aaron had chosen pink as their wedding colour and wanted pink incorporated into the design, so we used pale pink ribbon around the edge of each tier which was also completed with a single row of diamante around each tier.
The second and top tier were in additionally decorated with a continuous piping technique known as Cornelli work. It’s a very pretty technique that it also quite subtle but adds an additional texture / feature to the cake.
The cake was faced points forward and a cascade or pale pink and white sugar roses were added to the top pf the cake and across the front of the cake, covering the point of each tier as they twisted round the cake. I then added a few lose rose petals around the cake to make it look as if they had fallen from the roses.
The cake was topped with a personalised cake topper supplied by the couple themselves.
The barn at Cooling Castle is fabulous and the cake looked spectacular under the spotlight on the cake table.
