Pastel Nightmare Before Christmas Wedding Cake

nightmare-before-christmas-pastel-wedding-cake

I have been so looking forward to sharing Lora andCarla‘s wedding cake with you all from their beautiful wedding last Sunday at Ringwood Hall Hotel

When I met the couple 2 years ago they said, right we have a challenge for you, I thought it might be the eiffel tower… turns out they had bigger plans!(well, maybe not bigger buuuut…) The list was Nightmare Before Christmas, pastel themed in blush pink and dove grey, with pumpkins, a wonky top tier, a sparkly snow covered hill and Jack and Sally figures! Hopefully I pulled it off! Each tier is handpainted, swirls on the base, graveyard, trees and bats on the next tier up, swirls and the famous quote from the film “For it is plain, as anyone can see, we are simply meant to be” and the painted top bit of the graveyard gate on the top tier.
There was also a large sugar moon but I didn’t get chance to photograph it in situ at the venue so I’m looking forward to seeing Carla and Lora’s official pics!

Tiers of red velvet, lemon & lime, madagascan vanilla and chocolate mud.

Thanks for the crazy fun challenge girls! I hope you had the best day ever.

Massive big huge shout out (do people still say that!?..shout out?!) to Tracey Rothwell of the amazingly incredible Little Cherry Cake Company and Black Cherry Cake Company, Tracey creates amazing alternative wedding cakes all the time and was so helpful giving me guidance, advice and reassurance, and I couldn’t have done it without very heavy inspiration from her designs! Thanks lovely.xx

Surprise Wedding Cake

How excited am I today to share Claire and Zac’s wedding cake from yesterday at The Farmhouse at Mackworth (also because it means I can finally breathe again after having to not say a word about this secret for 7 months!!)

It was a complete SURPRISE wedding to all their friends and family who thought they were attending a birthday party and didn’t even know the couple were engaged! The shock amazement faces thatCamera Hannah captured are priceless, pop onto her page to see!

The couple wanted a fun, unique and creative wedding cake (that could also not give the game away when party guests first arrived!) we came up with this amazing design which gradients from the aubergine shades in Claire’s dress up to the powder blue tones of Zac’s suit. Colourful peacock shades for the bubbles that rose up around the cake and a few bits of sugar lego to tie in with their centre pieces and the topper for the cheese cake. Topper bespoke made by Miss Cake who is fab.

Tiers of madagascan vanilla, zesty lemon & lime and strawberry & champagne. They also had cupcakes and cake pops to accompany the cake 🙂Hope you both had the best day ever and I am so so excited to see the video highlights from Hannah. Thank you for being so lovely to work with and choosing such a unique cake to create 🙂 xx

 

Beach Themed Wedding Cake

It was such a privilege to create Katie and Scott’s wedding cake at Alfreton Hall for them on Friday. The couple got married in Cyprus in April then had a big reception with all their friends and family.

Champagne iced with a pearlesant shimmer, sugar shells, waves and sand. Tiers of rich brandied fruit cake, chocolate mud and zesty lemon & lime.

It was so fun to work on such a unique cake design and Katie must be the most chilled out bride ever! She was more than happy just to let me do my cake thing! Thanks for being so lovely to work with, and to your lovely mum too xx

Forest Green Ruffle and Lace Wedding Cake

Good evening cake lovers! I have been so looking forward to sharing these photos with you of Beth and Jake’s amazing wedding cake from last Saturday at Mosborough Hall Hotel

Such a stunning design we came up with together – gradiented tiers from dark forest green to ivory with ruffled roses, hand piped lace and pearls, hessian with lace overlay and topped with two beautiful sugar feathers.

Tiers of strawberry & champagne, zesty lemon & lime, red velvet and gluten free salted caramel. Positioned on one of my lovely oak wood rustic cake stands.

I loved creating your wedding cake for you both, such a unique and different bespoke design to anything I have ever made before. It was great to work with you and thanks for stepping out of the ivory box! Hope you both had an amazing wedding day xx
