Cake & Party.....

much noise in the cake world when Fiona Cairns was named as cake designer for the wedding. Pictures released last night show a scene stealing cake, in cream & white decorated with the most exquisite sugar flowers and piped lace work on the cake:
The language of flowers on the cake symbolise the following:
Rose (white) - national symbol of England

Daffodil - national symbol of Wales, new beginnings
Shamrock - national symbol of Ireland
Thistle - national symbol of Scotland
Acorns, oak leaf - strength, endurance
Myrtle - love
Ivy - wedded love, marriage
Lily of the valley - sweetness, humility
Rose (bridal) - happiness, love
Sweet William - grant me one smile
Honeysuckle - the bond of love
Apple blossom - preference, good fortune
White heather - protection, wishes will come true
Jasmine (white) - amiability
Daisy - innocence, beauty, simplicity
Orange blossom - marriage, eternal love, fruitfulness
Lavender - ardent attachment, devotion, success, and luck.
from cakes to party.... here are a few treats made for our street party..... we had sausage sandwiches & pots of tea for the build-up and service.... followed by feast of savoury and sweet for the garden party.....
a fabulous day, filled with friends, love & fun.......
