Wedding Cake Wednesday: Class in Blush and Deco for My Bestie

Despite many MANY years spent as a professional Cake Designer, there are still the occasional orders that throw me into a state of panic.

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Elegance in Grey & Pearl Revisited

I couldn’t resist sharing these with you! Receiving professional photographs from my Wedding couples is the best thing ever.

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Elegance in Grey & Pearl

I loved creating this cake for Ollie and Gracie. Grey is one seriously sophisticated colour for a Wedding Cake. A fairly simple concept of cascading pearls makes this cake deceptively simple. However, when you consider that each pearl was piped by hand and then hand-painted, there is some intricacy in simplicity. To enable this cake to be stacked seamlessly, a … Read More

Wedding Cake Wednesday: A Pair of Star-Crossed Lovers

The joy of being a bespoke Wedding Cake Designer is that I am afforded the opportunity to work with some genuinely interesting couples. Charlotte and Matthew are that!

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Chocolate Drip Cake

Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I delivered two very different Wedding Cakes on Saturday.

I’ve Been Doing This for Ten Years Now

In a little departure from Fashion on Friday, I thought I should share this with you. Chris reminded me this morning that it has been ten years since I made my first Wedding Cake.

Wedding Cake Wednesday: Relaxed Elegance 

I maintain that this is the perfect theme for any Wedding in the first week of January. Annie and Frederick wanted their Wedding to feel relaxed but elegant. Their Wedding Cake was tiers of post-festive diet busting Chocolate Mud Cake, Victoria Sponge, and Passionfruit Drizzle. The choice of flavours was intended to reflect their heritage – Victoria Sponge being the … Read More
