A glamorous peach, gold and black themed 30th birthday party for one of my best friends who loves all things Victoriana. I was so pleased with how the cakes and decor came together that I couldn't resist posting lots of lovely photos (courtesy of Mr Rhubarb & Rose). We had cakes galore, a dressing up hamper, typewriter for messages, and vintage style photos of the birthday girl through the years. This was the biggest cake I have made ever (I was secretly hoping for a cake fight at the end but it all got eaten!). Skip to the end for all the deets on the deets!
The cake was a 10" lemon layer cake with a lemon curd filling and vanilla buttercream icing. The decor was made from chocolate moulds (for the bows and roses) and candy melts with gold edible glitter and lustre dust. I left a an old typewriter from eBay in a corner of the room for messages. The labels were made from parcel tags and typewriter font rubber stamps. The 'Red Heads Have More Fun' dressing up hamper was filled with red wigs from a local fancy dress shop. The stickers were from Moo. The photo frames were from Ikea and painted gold. The little bottles were left over from our wedding this summer and were filled with roses and placed on paper doilies on each table along with simple tea lights. The lovely room is above the Defectors Weld in Shepherds Bush (they looked after us very well - thanks guys!).
