Oh the places they'll go!

Last night marked another mile stone in our family. We celebrated my niece Alanna's bridal shower and of course we were thrilled to be able to make her a cake for this special evening. Dona, the matron of honour, was in charge of making this a memorable event with the chosen the theme of travel.

Bright colours of rustic orange and turquoise with a touch of gold were the theme colours so we used the colours to create Alanna's cake. 

The light lemony slab cake is filled with a lemon curd and white chocolate mousse and covered in the rustic orange fondant. Fun swirls were used for the imprints. The turquoise cosmetic bag is imprinted with a quilted design and a gold zipper.

We used edible prints for the destination stickers and the passports. The destinations include the 3 locations of Germany, Austria and Switzerland which Alanna and Mike will be vacationing during their honeymoon this coming November. Also included is Italy (Alanna's background), Portugal (Mike's background) and of course Canada.

The buckles and lock were made from gum paste and a fondant bag tag was added along with edible passports.

We also made cookies for Alanna's shower which were added to each guests favours to take home. Our yummy sugar cookies and in keeping with the travel theme were shaped into airplanes.
Can't wait for your wedding, you will make a beautiful bride and we are excited that our little Jules will be a part of your big day as your flower girl.

Congratulations Alanna, we love you.
