Gwen Stefani shared the first pictures from her weekend wedding to Blake Shelton and the first one showed an elaborate five-tier wedding cake complete with buttercream piped into ruffles, a custom cake topper and an extravagant bed of white flowers at its base.
Boutique bakery Fancy Cakes By Lauren owner Lauren Kitchens revealed on social media that the cake had a sentimental story behind it. It was a recreation of Gwen’s parent’s wedding cake.
“This wasn’t just a wedding cake we made for two superstars. Our bride wanted to make a sentimental statement by recreating her parent’s wedding cake. Both of Gwen’s parents were there to see her honor them with this cake. This style of cake has become a lost art of free-hand piping called Lambeth Cake Design. It’s slowing making a comeback in weddings and I’m sure Gwen and Blake have just pushed Lambeth right back into demand with their five-tier beauty. Complete with white swan pillars, bells, tiny sugar flowers, and white chocolate cherubs…. All of the small piping details are layers upon layers of intricate Royal icing that creates an elaborate cake design fit for (literally) America royalty. Scroll through to find inspiration photos, cake sketches, and detail shots of the cake. Congratulations to this wonderful couple!!! Gwen, you got your cowboy!”
