3 Weddings in 6 days!!







The first of the 3 cakes was this 4 tier version of a 3 tier cake by Little Cherry Cake Co.  My thanks for her permission to allow me to reproduce her design.  My warmest congratulations to Tanveer and Sandeep.  White stripes on a white cake, with hand-made sugar roses.  Unfortunately, due to the lighting at the venue, I wasn't able to get a great photo.  





The second cake was this 5 tier wedding cake for Sana & Zahir with hand-made sugar roses and hydrangea, pretty lace and ribbon and finished with hand-piped royal icing detail.


And the final cake was this 6 tier cake that was delivered to The Waldorf Hilton in London.  It is always a pleasure to work with Becki of Floco Flower Company and I love the exquisite roses and hydrangea that we dressed the cake with.  Warmest congratulations to Esha & Matesh on their civil wedding ceremony.

Wedding Cake 'Charlotte'

Wedding Cake 'Charlotte'... Beautiful 4 tier wedding cake, finished in royal icing, with ombré tones of bronze and gold and decorated with roses and hydrangea. This would also work with buttercream or white chocolate ganache if royal icing isn't for you!! Many thanks to Celebration Cakes by Catherine Scott for allowing me to copy their original design.

White Chocolate Wedding Cake

Congratulations to Navdeep & Daryl who were married today at Langton House.
I made the wedding cake for Navdeep's sister, Anita,  5 years ago (Crikey!  That's frightening how quickly the time's gone!) and so I was honoured that they came back to me when it was Navdeep's wedding.  3 tiers of light vanilla sponge with jam & buttercream, covered with white chocolate ganache and finished with white chocolate cigarellos and fresh flowers to match the bride's bouquet.

My warmest congratulations to Gemma & Chris. They chose a pretty cake with a real vintage feel... which co-ordinated so well with the gorgeous flower-filled china used as table centre-pieces at Blake Hall, Essex. Cake flavours were chocolate with salted caramel buttercream; lemon sponge with lemon curd buttercream; and champagne & strawberry flavour.

Two cakes, one party



Brother and sister Zakariyya and Zahra had a joint 3rd / 1st birthday party.  Zakariyya had a number 3 cake, topped with a little toy of his favourite character and Zahra had a farmyard cake - as a petting zoo was actually the entertainment at the party!

What a difference a photo makes! Last year, I made this lovely 5 tier wedding cake decorated with over-piped edible cake lace and sugar roses, for a wedding at the lovely London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, but my rushed photo at home couldn't come anywhere close to this beautiful shot taken by Alexandre Pichon Photography.  My sincere thanks to Alexandre for kindly allowing me to use this photo.

Photo Shoot

Last month, I created two completely different wedding cakes for a photo shoot at the majestic Moor Park Golf Club.  I am beyond thrilled with the gorgeous photos.  

This first cake is a 5 tier white-on-white cake that was created to echo the exquisite detail on an Ersa Atelier wedding dress called 'Truth', by using edible Cake Lace and hand-piped royal icing.






The second cake, in traditional Asian wedding colours of red and gold, took elements of the exquisite Asian wedding dress, worn by Sabeehah.
