Four Weddings and a Food Festival

It was a crazy seven days…

Long days comprised of early kitchen starts, on days where any sugarcrafting needed to be complete by lunchtime lest the sun move around to heat the kitchen to an unworkable temperature, working on four very beautiful and very different wedding cakes.

Because I can, I will share the design process for each one with you over the coming weeks, along with (hopefully) some gorgeous professional shots. That is the joy of Wedding Cake Wednesday! I love to take you through the process of creating Bespoke Wedding Cakes from consultation, to design, to delivery.

My week began with the delivery of a feather-festooned cake to the Thames for one of the Queen’s Swan-Uppers. If you have never heard of the Swan-Uppers, I promise that I will explain all about this wonderful tradition when I write all about Vanessa and Chris’ cake.

The remainder of that weekend was spent on stage at Foodies Festival, Alexandra Palace. I want to thank everyone who attended over the weekend and came to say hello to me from the bottom of my heart. I have thoroughly enjoyed this summer with Foodies and meeting so many of you has been a joy. I hope very much to be back with new demonstrations in 2017.

It was an extra special weekend as I baked with Jamie Laing from Made in Chelsea AND joined The Three Belles for a photograph… we may start a new girl group. What do you think?

My next Wedding Cake was a truly wonderful one to make. It was for my dear friends Hettie & Pete. Super glamorous as the couple themselves, this was an odyssey of edible white sugar lace, piped pearls, and handmade sugar roses.


The weekend was divided between a sexy nautical theme and a Rockabilly Wedding in romantic blush tones.

As promised, with each of these weddings, I will share the original sketches and final details over the coming weeks. Wednesdays on my blog are dedicated to Wedding Cakes and how I create them from start to finish.

If you are planning a 2017 Wedding, now is the time to get in touch to pencil in your date. You can read all about my Bespoke Wedding Cake service by clicking on any of the cake pictures in this post.

Here’s to a slightly quieter week ahead… no, it’s just as crazy.

Stay gorgeous!
