Rose Bush Wedding Cake Pops – Yum!!!
When a lovely bride commissioned these little rosebush cake pops, I was so excited – they were to tie in with her personalised Doll’s house and garden themed wedding. The idea was that guests placed their gifts into the doll’s house and next to the house were the little rose bushes all in different pastels to match her wedding colours – all 175 looked so cute lined up ready to be packed.

What a lovely idea for a wedding though – if you are having a cake made of cheese, why not have something alternative for those with a sweet tooth. I look forward to my next wedding commission – maybe a wedding cake or some beautiful personalised wedding favours to decorate the tables with…
