Toby and Krystle’s Wedding, and The Cake

0701toby1874

Last Friday we had the pleasure of attending my nephew’s wedding. Toby can be spotted occasionally on these pages, usually on a dark December evening up Shutlingsloe. He and Krystle ventured very close to Shutlingsloe and even closer to White Nancy, for their wedding at Hollin Hall.

A joyous occasion, enjoyed by everyone.

There’s a short slideshow here that will probably only be of interest to family members.

Sue in particular enjoyed the day, once her cake responsibilities had been fulfilled and she was able to relax. Here’s what she says:

“Here are a few photos of the cake I made for the wedding last Friday.  The top and bottom tiers were fruit, the middle one was madeira sponge.

Thanks to Top Tier cakes in Sale Moor for their excellent advice, and supply of boards, icing, pearls, etc.

As you can see, I chickened out of putting roses in a swirl all the way down the cake (too many vertical surfaces), but Krystle was happy as it was.

Although I say it myself, it tasted super too!”

(Especially the sponge cake, which was my small contribution – Ed.)

Many thanks for the wedding pictures. I was very sorry not to be able to be with you all but it looked a very happy occasion. Sue's cake looked fabulous and I'm looking forward to a taste! See you soon.
