Annie Nolan and Liam Picken's NYE Wedding
Such a Privilege to create this custom wedding cake for the gorgeous Annie Nolan (@uncannyannieblog) and her husband Liam Picken (Western Bulldogs Football Player). On our first consultation Annie & Liam bought their children in, as they were always going to be a big part of the wedding. It was such an obvious move to incorporate the whole family into the cake design. After Annie and Liam gave us some insight into the kids personalities, we started creating.
We needed multiple tiers, because, you know, who doesn’t love cake?!! Gold was also on the agenda adding a glam element to contrast the classic white fondant. Then came the icing figurines of the whole family.
We started with Malachy, the oldest of three kids and coolest little man I’ve ever met. Dreadlocked & mo-hawked, we sat him next to Liam. You can see him tugging on his dad’s arm because that’s exactly what he does at home when he wants to go outside and play.
Next came the little personality which is Delphi. A little shy at the start, but with a heart of gold. We put her straight into her mothers arms. She’s pulling the veil over her face to hide. Absolutely adorable in a matching flower girl dress with her sister Cheska.
Now Cheska on the other hand is far more cheeky so we had her (whilst no one was looking) take a piece out of the cake. Super cute, with the crumbs covering her face!
We absolutely loved making this very personalised cake and it was such fun getting to know each and every member of the gang. We continue to this day to celebrate the milestones in the Picken family creating a combined Frozen, Darth Vader and Ariel birthday cake for the little ones joint birthday this year and also Liam’s 30th Birthday cake.
