Buttercream Bakery Miniature Afternoon Tea Table Cake


Miniature Afternoon Tea Table Vanilla Layer Cake

This cake is tiny, with a diameter of just 11cm once iced and the little plates are just 3cm in diameter.


How cute is this cake?!

This little cake comes complete with plates of cucumber sandwiches, crust-less of course, gingerbread men, two plates of macarons, madeleines, Belgian waffles and pink wafer biscuits.


The cake is covered in light blue fondant, ruffled at the base to create the tablecloth, I think the little pink bows look gorgeous and really add to the overall look of the cake.


I honestly can't decide what plate is my favourite, the macarons and cucumber sandwiches are too sweet and I love the madeleines too, which even have that signature little hump.


Everyone who saw this cake was a little awe struck, including my client who utterly adored it and I'm really pleased with it, especially as it is my very first miniature afternoon tea table cake.  Something tells me I will be making many more, I'd like to do a larger cake that I could fit more plates on!


Have a fantastic weekend everyone.

I'm in awe, so pretty this cake is!!!! Incredible - and I love the colors you used - soft! I'm SURE you'll be asked to do MANY more of these - who wouldn't adore one!!! Yes, a larger one might even let you put a pretty three tier stand as the centerpiece, however I don't know how you'd create one!! Love!
