A few weeks ago my husband had the honour of officiating a Dedication service for our niece's beautiful baby boy, Ollie. This was extra special for us because our niece was the flower girl at our wedding 21 years ago. The dedication service took place under the stunning autumn trees near the quaint country church where my niece was married.
It is quite extraordinary watching the years fly by so fast, with a new generation of babies taking centre stage in our family. And what beautiful babies they are!
Using the invitation card as inspiration, I chose grey, white and cornflower blue as the colour scheme, with a touch of chevron on the gumpaste elephant. The unfrilled ruffles were more suitable for a baby boy, while adding texture to the cake. I found these gorgeous wooden letters which fit perfectly on the cake stand, and made a lovely gift for the proud parents.
Again, the photos are not as good as I would like, as my camera is still out of action and I am unable to set up and style the shoot.....but still, you can see the cake and take a glimpse of this very special occasion.
