Whimsical Meets Rustic Wedding Cake

Merging whimsical and rustic into one theme could be one of the most difficult tasks for any planner or designer. So when I saw this dreamy cake by Cat Campbell of Cake Whisperer in Ottawa, I just had to share it with you.
The six-tier fondant confection mixes color and texture beautifully. The ruffles at the bottom coordinate well with the woven ribbon effect for the top tier. Rustic blue and gold sandwich two all-white tiers in the middle.
What makes this so ethereal and rustic is the use of whimsical feathers and the wreath and flowers--attached to the side of the cake!
What do you think of this wedding cake?

I was in a baking mood and decided to try to make these! They came out good for my first time 😁😁 I'll post my recipes below if you'd like to try and make them. If you'd like the recipe, message me 😘 My bun recipe: -200g milk (Lukewarm) -5g active dry yeast -30g sugar --240g bread flour -60g all purpose flour -30g butter (room temp) -Egg wash Step 1: put lukewarm milk, sugar and yeast in a bowl. Whisk and set aside for 5min Step 2: in a separate bowl, combine bread flour and all purpose flour. Then add milk mixture. Add a pinch of salt and knead dough Step 3: after dough can take ball form, knead in the room temp butter. Knead until butter is fully incorporated. After incorporated, put in a lightly greased bowl cover with plastic wrap and set aside in a warm place for 30-40 min. Step 4: after 30-40 mins, take dough out. It should have doubled in size. Put flour on your finger and poke the middle of the dough. If it first bounce back, declare the air from dough and cut in 8 equal pieces. Form in to balls and set aside on a baking sheet for 10-15 mins. Make sure to cover with a lightly dampened cloth. Step 5: cut two areas on the doughball across from each other in a diagonal direction. Egg was the parts you cut in to. Sprinkle with sugar cover them again with a lightly dampened cloth and let them rest for 30 mins - an hour. They will double in size again Step 6: bake in an oven preheated to 400° for 10-12 mins and you're done! Chocolate pudding filling: -2 egg yolks -2 1/2 tbsp sugar -1 tbsp all purpose flour -1 1/2 tbsp corn starch -1 tbsp coco powder -200ml milk (hot) -2 tbsp butter -30g chocolate. I used four squares of semi sweet chocolate Step 1: whisk egg yolks and sugar together. In separate bowl, combine flour, corn starch and coco powder. Add mixture to yolk mixture and whisk together. Step 2: slowly add hot milk to the chocolate yolk mixture. When fully combined. Put yolk mixture through a strainer into a pot. Out put on burner and set to medium heat. Continuously whisk until mixture thickens to pudding consistency. Step 3: take off heat immediately and add butter and chocolate. Continue mixing until chocolate and butter mix in. Step 4: place plastic wrap directly on pudding and put in fridge to cool. After it cools, mix it again and add to piping bag.
The Harry Potter World Food Seems As Magical As It Looks
You'll never believe what's on the menu. It may not be full of magic potions and jumping chocolate frogs but its pretty darn close. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios L.A. has rolled out its menu for the Hogsmeade village including the Three Broomsticks Pub. Ultimately, the food is your typical American grub with British charm. After all, Americans don't need an exact British menu because we already have an American wizarding school for our magical students or what the kids in the states call now-a-days "no maj". To win over any tourist, one must be impressed by food presentation, atmosphere, and service. J.K. Rowling will not let any of these circumstances go to waste as she continues to boast her billion dollar brand. Below is the list of things the menu entails and it looks pretty promising. Obviously there will be alcohol for adults and butter-beer for the kids. In my opinion that sounds like a pretty fun time and I'm sure the food has been tested by many gourmet chefs to make for perfect results. You'll be able to chow down starting April 7th. Breakfast I dare you to figure out which is the American inspired dishes and which are the British inspired dishes. "Traditional" is a key word in their breakfast presentation. You've got plenty of syrup and bacon. However there's also potatoes, eggs, sausage, croissants, and some hardy meats. Obviously you've seen these foods a million times before but its more for the atmosphere of waking up and enjoying the most important meal of the day in Harry Potter's world. Kid's Menu Automatically, the only thing that I want are the chicken fingers in this picture. Obviously the grapes look pretty appetizing and the potatoes wedges are a nice touch. And if you're going for a more Brit lunch, you can get some fish and chips. I'm sure the macaroni and cheese is delicious because if kids are eating this, it better be tolerable because they are not one to hold back their opinion. Lunch Your generic soup and salad lunch combo. Though they are presented very Panera like, they're probably named something goofy. A fish and chips dinner is always a viable fried choice if you're into that type of thing but a chicken pot pie is definitely your better option. I have to admit that the food styling of the chicken salad is absolutely stunning and definitely something that I would gawk at if served to me. Dinner Very hardy, very meaty, and very traditional. There's a lot of incorporation of vegetables and sauces to make it more authentic. The portions do seem rather large and definitely fresh. I'm not sure if I'm too impressed with the dinner since it seems almost too stereotypical American but I guess it does fit the pub atmosphere. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what people think. Dessert Yes, just go for it. Enjoy!
