A trio of Mexican-inspired cake goodness!





















A gorgeous Mexican bird bunting was the inspiration behind this fresh and summery cake table we put together for a recent outdoor engagement fiesta. Three coordinated cakes decorated with hand made large sugar roses and rustic piping were the focal point against an airy aqua and white backdrop.

Refreshing iced tea accompanied the rich slices of cake. Guests took home a bar of hand made soap that we wrapped in beautiful floral fabric, held together with our matching labels as a party favour.








The bird bunting, napkins and 'Summer loves Mexico' tea towel are all from super-talented NZ design house Citta Design.  We instantly fell in love with their stunning collection of Mexican inspired homewares; well worth a look!

We're working on some very exciting projects in the coming months and can't wait to share them with you! A new Cake Ink. website is also on the horizon, which we hope will allow us to include more things like our favourite recipes, inspiration, DIY projects and things we love on our blog. What would you like to see featured more? We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Have a lovely weekend!

What a stunning table, I love the colours and soft design, really love this to bits. Well done!

PS: I love seeing how you are inspired from invite to cake design and the final result, its amazing how one element can give birth to a whole theme. Love it!
