A Halloween Wedding

Last year, some of our closest friends got married on Halloween - what an awesome date for a wedding!

It was fantastic to be a part of their big day (it had been a long time coming!), and I also had the honour of baking the cake.

The happy couple opted for a big flavour filled cake rather than a fondant covered one, and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. We even managed to get it all the way to their house with minor casualties! (They live a couple of hours drive away - one of the most stressful journeys I've had in my two years of driving...)


This was a huge layered chocolate orange cake, topped with chopped chocolate orange fondant thins and homemade chocolate orange truffles, and finished off with a band of homemade candied orange peel around the base. The slices were huge!


Everyone seemed to enjoy it - who doesn't like chocolate orange??


We also managed to come away with some lovely wedding favours. Each guest was given a bouquet stuffed full of tasty treats, so Mr Hatter and I got a huge bouquet each full of vegan stuff! Bonus!




On a not-so-cake-related note, I want to show you the custom Pop Vinyl ring holder that Mr Hatter made. You can check out more of his work on his blog Northern Revenant. Just look at the detail on that hair!

  1. It was such an intimate moment and you could really feel the love and energy in the place. Our ceremony at the wedding venues was the most beautiful and romantic ceremony I could have ever expected (and all our guests made sure to tell us they felt the same way once it was over!).
