The Leanne hessian and lace wedding cake

Leanne and Steve were married at the wonderful Kings Arms in Amersham. This was my first time at this venue and I was blown away by the quality of the light in the room. This picture just doesn’t do it justice, but the whole room was so light and airy.IMG_0379

The couple’s decor and choice of cake decoration worked beautifully in this room. They had lots of hessian, white lace, glass, log slices and bunting. It gave a clean, simple look to the wedding that was really effective and just beautiful in that space.

The couple had a tough time choosing their cake flavours – they loved everything! In the end, they chose a chocolate oreo cake, carrot cake and lemon cake. The cake was covered in classic fondant icing and then decorated with deep hessian and lace ribbon.

The couple also had a bake off with their guests bringing cakes along to make up a whole cake table, which I love as an idea – you can never have too much cake!

Tracey’s rustic buttercream wedding cake

Tracey and James had a gorgeous wedding set in a marquee surrounded by rolling countryside. They had a clean, elegant rustic theme in keeping with their location but with a massive dollop of Italian flair. The couple don’t like classic icing so they chose a buttercream cake and I used a textured finish to fit with their rustic theme.

Their cake was served as dessert so had to be a bit pudding-y and the flavours also reflected a nod to Tracey’s Italian heritage. The cake was coffee cake with coffee mascarpone frosting, carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and red velvet with cream cheese frosting.

The Groom’s mum arranged the flowers for the wedding and created the cake topper. She also provided some extras so that I could arrange flowers on the lower cake tiers. The cake was finished with a bunting cake topper that I sourced for the couple to perfectly match their colour scheme.

A massive thank you to Jo of Jo Neville Photography (who is on the love list!). She photographed the wedding and provided these gorgeous photos. It’s so lovely to see photos of our couples and their guests!

Gingerbread men wedding favours

I love an edible wedding favour for wedding guests. They are always really popular and most guests will take them away with them, which is great as there is nothing worse than spending money on favours and finding they are all left on the table at the end of the evening!

Gingerbread is the most popular flavour with my couples and you can’t go wrong with a classic gingerbread man. We have a range of sizes available to suit your budget and prices vary depending on the type of decoration that you need. Eyes and a smile take a lot less time to ice than an intricate icing replica of your dress!

Victoria’s ivory and gold cupcake tower

Victoria and Rob got married at The Grange in Northwood. We covered a whole range of flavours for Victoria and Rob as they had a fruit cake as a cutting cake alongside a cupcake tower featuring 5 different flavoured cupcakes.

For their cupcakes, Victoria and Rob chose a mix of classic flavours, like lemon with lemon buttercream, and raspberry and white chocolate with white chocolate ganache, alongside a couple of more unusual flavours – banoffee with toffee frosting and turkish delight with vanilla frosting. They finished their flavour choices with champagne cupcakes because everyone loves champagne!

Now, the challenge with so many flavours is to create individual cupcakes that look good and are decorated so that each flavour can be decorated but a cupcake tower that looks fabulous when you put all of those different decorations together and doesn’t look like a hot mess!

The wedding had an ivory and gold theme so we stuck with those colours and kept the decorations clean and simple. I also provided and arranged the flowers on the cupcake tower and created a menu for the couple so that their guests could choose a cupcake flavour that they’d like.

A modern Christening cake

I love a non-traditional cake, and today’s cake is just that. My customer wanted a Christening cake for her 5 year old son, but she didn’t want a classic, traditional cake – she wanted something a little more quirky and unusual that her son would love but that would still be appropriate for the occasion.

We looked at a few different design option before finally landing on bubbles. To give this cake another modern twist, the cake itself was finished with a smooth, buttercream skim then decorated, rather than a classic fondant finish cake.

Although we used this cake for a Christening, I also think it would be great asa birthday cake. It works in pretty much any colour and could be great for a teenager who no longer wants their favourite TV character on a cake.
