The inspiration for our wedding cake was a walk through the countryside on a winter’s day.

Here’s some pictures I took from a New Years trip to the Cotswold’s.

We’d like the bottom tier of our cake to be made up of the kind of frost covered plants, berries and thorns that you find at wintertime. My fiancé’s mother who’s making our cake has been creating some examples out of icing. I think they’re great especially the Tim Burton inspired thorns! The decorations will be made of different shades of blue, black and a little red – it looks very dramatic against the white icing of the cake.

Here’s some of Shinmin Li’s cakes…
