Wedding cakes and other yummy things by Aan Tafel
Wedding cakes by Aan Tafel
Wedding cakes make my heart sing a beautiful song. They are so gorgeous and most of the times really showing the couple’s taste and sweet preferences.
I was excited when I’ve got a chance to attend a cake shoot where Susanna Nordvall was photographing stunning cakes made by Cakes by Aan Tafel. Those beauties were styled by talented Michaela from Hey Look. All the flowers and flower styling was also made by Michaela.
“Preparations, aka messy table”
It was really fun to watch how Michaela styled, Susanna photographed and Romany & Juho from Aan Tafel prepared each cake to be photographed. Such a fun time!
I got to shoot some of those cakes as well. I was actually testing my new Tamron 45 mm 1.8 lens (thank you again Focus Nordic!) first time at this shoot.
Be aware of cake overload!
Rose and vanilla cake with a chocolate frosting
This cake is probably my favourite because of its rich colors and beautiful flower decorations. Oh yeah, and also because of its taste!
Candied bacon and maple syrup on a chocolate cake
The bacon cake was probably the most strange cake of all. When it has bacon on it, it has to be the strangest…thankfully it’s candied bacon. Sounds fun and adventurous, right?
Olive oil and vanilla wedding cake
The cream cheese frosting wedding cake is really sophisticated and suits well for garden summer weddings. I love olive branches so this styling is one of my favourites!
Lemongrass and ginger wedding cake
The lemongrass and ginger wedding cake has a sea buckthorn mousse between the layers and it’s frosted with a white chocolate buttercream. Simple and beautiful styling.
Elderflower wedding cake
This wedding cake was really fluffy and moist and it was frosted with rosewater frosting and topped with a light pink wild violet drizzle.
Salted caramel and chocolate birthday cake
Chocolate and salted caramel is such a delicious combo. I think this cake could be really great for gatherings on those cold evenings with friends and family.
And guess what’s almost the best part in a cake shoot…? Yes, when you get to taste those beautiful and yummy cakes after the shoot is over! Thank you guys!
If you are not sure which cake would be best for your wedding or other celebration, book a tasting! I just noticed that Cakes by Aan Tafel can arrange a cake tasting for you and your closest ones (totalling of max 4 people).
You can have “a cake day” before your wedding!! How cool is that!
