Here we have Julie and Dave's wedding cake (another friends cake to do, one more left to go this year!) As you can see it was a simple design with fresh flowers on top. Again I loved making this one as Julie left me to get on with the design etc. It was the first cake I have made that has been displayed on one of these separator stands, to be honest I was not sure of them before the event but it won me over and I think it definitely adds impact to a smaller cake.
This pic is of the lovely Karen and Darren's wedding cake and cupcakes. They got married in a beautiful ancient Hall with all there decorations etc being in the black and green colour theme which looked so elegant and fresh.
This is a pic of my friend Laura's wedding cupcakes that I made back in July. The wedding was a beautiful and truly individual day with the rusty orange and turquoise as the colours throughout the wedding which were stunning. I made 80 of these cupcakes with the exotic flowers and small roses on each of them. There was also a top tier lemon sponge which was iced in plain ivory and had rust orange ribbon wrapped around the cake many times which looked effective.
Sorry it has been so long since I posted some pics, but here we have a few from the past couple of months... This campervan wedding cake was so enjoyable to make as the bride gave me quite broad ideas and just left me to get on with the design which is always so exciting for me! The campervan was made from Oasis florists foam which my helpful partner carved for me (he has a lot of practice as a budding sculptor) so I left this in his capable hands. I then just iced the Oasis as I would a normal cake and the results were great!
This was a four tier sponge cake that I delivered to a wedding last week, there were approximatly 500 blossom flowers which tied in with the brides lilac and purple colour theme perfectly. It was such a pleasure to make a cake for Kelly the bride, she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met.
This was a trial cake for a vintage tea-party wedding order for a September wedding. I am really into the vintage themed look at the moment, the bride has themed everything from invites to the napkins, it is going to look amazing!
This really was a great challenge, I loved the planning and design stage of this cake right through to delivering this cake in the heavy snow we had a few weeks ago! Just in case you cant make out from the photo, there are a surf board, a cat and a book placed on the piano as they were all special to the lady who 60th birthday it was. I also iced in black icing 'happy 60th birthday' on to the black lid of the piano to keep it subtle.
Welcome! Through the photos of my work I hope to share with you my passion for creating contemporary and elegant cakes that express the individual style of the occasion and the people they are baked for.
Thank you for visiting!
