I love a good wedding cake! I can’t help it! The more I work with wedding cakes, the more I fall in love with them. There is something so wonderful about being asked and entrusted with the task of making and setting up the centrepiece of someone’s wedding, I can’t help but feel privileged! While there aren’t many weddings to be had this year due to all the CV-19 carry-on, let’s have a look back at five of my favourites from years gone by…
This beautiful four tier naked cake loaded with crisp fresh fruits, set up at the gorgeous Mitton Hall in Clitheroe.
This luxurious champagne and ivory three tier wedding cake set up at Singleton Lodge near Poulton-le-Fylde. Decorated with delicate damask pattern, dusted with soft champagne shimmer, soft drapes on the bottom tier and finished with handmade sugar flowers.
This oh-so-pretty three tier cake with many, many ruffles and gorgeous piping round the top tier. This one was set up at The Villa, Wrea Green.
This absolute beauty set up at The Villa Wrea Green on the Fylde Coast, the most luxurious wedding cake I’ve ever had the pleasure of making – four glorious tiers of cake, dressed in soft dove grey and contrasting coral, with all sorts of beautiful textures and patterns and topped with a handmade sugar flower globe. Standing guard at either side, two towering stands of cupcakes.
This wedding cake….made by the cake maker for the cake maker! Yep this is my own wedding cake, set up, and indeed enjoyed, at Singleton Lodge near Poulton-le-Fylde, three tiers of cake with a dummy spacer tier covered in copper leaf. With a range of my favourite textures from luscious ruffles, copper damask stencilling over a gloriously deep claret fondant, finished off with silk flowers, pheasant feathers and a swoosh of hand-dyed silk, this is my all time favourite, most luxurious cake. Natch.
