Wedding: Our Gluten Free Wedding Cake (that was AMAZING!)

Rustic Vintage Themed Wedding Sydney Australia

Gluten Free Wedding Cake Sydney - Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes

I married an incredible man and one who is so considerate. From the moment we began planning our wedding, Jesse told me there was one thing that mattered to him the most at our reception - that I would be able to eat our wedding cake too. 

As I have so many allergies, I'd almost given up on the idea of being able to eat my own cake unless I made it myself so I didn't really give it too much thought - but Jesse wanted us to find someone who would do it for us. 

Then, we met Danni - and I met a true friend who I absolutely adore. Danni, along with her sister Renee, own Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes and together they make the most amazing customised cakes and cookies. 

Best of all? They specialise in making allergy friendly treats for their clients - and whilst I presented the biggest challenge, Danni was willing to take on the task!

You all know I'm a baker and I love creating cakes and baked goods - but Danni's cake was the most amazing cake I (and many of our guests) have ever tasted.

The cake was a simple two layered cake (as Danni flew it up from Melbourne to Sydney so she could be at our wedding!) decorated with fresh ranunculus from Brides in Bloom (which matched my bouquet) and had our wedding logo on the front.

The bottom layer was a ridiculously good chocolate cake with chocolate ganace and the top layer was a vanilla blueberry cake with blueberry buttercream. Usually, wedding cakes aren't very good - but this cake was almost totally devoured (except for the small chunk we managed to snaffle and take home - and then we ate it for breakfast and lunch the next day :P Sorry, healthy living blog was on pause haha)

I think you can see the ridiculous excitement on my face in these photos. It was SO SO SO good. I totally underestimated Danni because I had no idea how good it would be - but the second I tasted the cake, I wanted to run away with a spoon and eat it all myself.

Jesse and I actually cut our entire cake ourselves rather than making one of our guests or the caterer do it and it was so much fun - plus, we got to sneak bits that "fell off" ;)

But honestly, if you're looking for a gluten free wedding cake, I highly recommend Sweet Cheeks Cookies and Cakes. They make custom cakes in both Sydney and Melbourne and ship gorgeous custom decorated cookies all over Australia. Not only that, Danni is an amazing person and I really do consider her a true friend - I'm so glad that Jesse's stubbornness and caring for me allowed me to meet her!

But tell me, what flavour would your ultimate cake be? 
I used to be a vanilla girl but now I'm alllllllll for chocolate and love light fruity cakes!
