Cornelli Lace Wedding Cake with Matching Cupcakes

We love working with the team at Rat’s in Grounds for Sculpture, it has to be our favorite venue for weddings. The gardens around the restaurant with the walkways and pond, modeled after Claude Monet’s garden in Giverny are unforgettable.

The team in the kitchen have always been very supportive, giving us space to add final touches to wedding cakes we deliver there. And we know the food too, having eaten there on our own special occasions, I’m happy as a professional chef to recommend the menu as first class!

For Kate and Trevor’s Spring wedding we created a cupcake display, a selection of cupcakes decorated with periwinkle¬†hydrangea sugar petals and each placed carefully in an individual paper lace wrapper. On top of the display we set a white wedding cake with a piped Cornelli lace pattern, and finished off with two wooden Mr & Mrs toppers.

The cake itself was chocolate fudge with amaretto moccha and covered in our own fondant, colored very slightly off-white. Half the cupcakes had the same flavor combination, but the remainder were red velvet cake with white chocolate cream. Delicious!

The venue has an added attraction, our little helper team always want to come along and assist with delivery and set up. That way we also give them some free time after to visit the gardens, and pose for photos!

P.S. Speak to our friend Christopher Carrell if you are thinking about arranging an event at Rat’s Restaurant, and count on us for your perfect cake!
