Buttercream Wedding Cake with Navy Butterflies and Sugar Flowers

Last Saturday I created this beautiful rustic buttercream wedding cake for Kirsty and Matthew at Peak Edge Hotel.

The couple opted for a yummy buttercream finish to the wedding cake with a thick palette ribbed effect and small posies of sugar flowers to compliment to bouquets, freesias, blossoms and hydrangeas in shades of ivory and blue, cute navy sugar butterflies with lustred shimmering wings dotted around the cake complimented the couple’s colour scheme with a hessian and navy ribbon over lay on the base tier.

Tiers of Red Velvet with vanilla pod buttercream, Zesty lemon and lime with lemon drizzle syrup, lemon curd and lemon and lime buttercream and Strawberry and champagne with champagne drizzle syrup, strawberry preserve and vanilla pod buttercream.

It was such a gorgeously sunny autumnal day and I can’t wait to see the professional snaps!xx

After a summer of being totally on top of photos and sharing and everything I have got a little bit slack these last 2 weeks, everything is just still crazily busy here with so many weddings still to go this year and tonnes of new enquiries every day for the next 2 years!
Anyway, finally!…

We designed this beautiful 4 tier cake together in our appointment together, with elements to match Laura’s beautiful wedding dress, sugar pleating, hand piped lace with diamante and silver leaf sequins, drop piped pearls, a large satin bow to the side and sugar flowers to match her bridal bouquet of dark dusky pink roses, ivory roses, bouvardia and hydrangea.

Tiers of – Chocolate Mud, Zesty Lemon & Lime, Very Berry and Red Velvet.

I love how elegant and lovely this bespoke cake design was, I hope you had an amazing wedding day, have had a fantastic honeymoon and are loving married life so far xx

Purple Lace and Pearl Wedding Cake

This time last week I delivered this absolutely gorgeous wedding cake to Ashbourne Hall for Amanda and Julian’s wedding day.
3 tiers decorated in my classic Lace & Pearl design with cadbury purple ribbons, a ribbon bow with vintage brooch and beautiful fresh flowers from the talented Riverbank Floristry
Tiers of zesty lemon & lime, red velvet and indulgent carrot cake, the couple also had an extra 10″ cutting cake in salted caramel and yummy chocolate mud cake pops for the kids. Apparently all of the cake went down a storm and the couple were enjoying slices for days after with friends and family who dropped in.
Delicious catering by Saffron Catering on the day too for anyone looking for top notch food for their guests.
Amanda and Julian are such a lovely, warm and happy couple who truly made the whole process a joy to create their special cake. I hope you are having an absolutely amazing adventure in Iceland at the moment, much love xx

Elegant Mocha Pearl Wedding Cake

I can’t believe it has been almost a week since I created this beautiful wedding cake for Hannah and Steve at The Maynard last Friday – time has just flown in August so sorry for the late share.

We came up with this lovely, pretty and elegant design together in our appointment. Staggered piped pearls on the top and bottom tier and drop piped pearls on the middle tier with mocha ribbons around the tiers to tie in with the bridesmaids dresses. Hannah’s friend had made her a bride topper for the cake too and a groom one in Ste’s beloved Sheffield United football shirt for his 3 tier pork pie cake!

Flavours of zesty lemon and lime, chocolate mud and indulgent carrot cake.

I hope you both had the best day ever, can’t wait to see the professional snaps from the talented John Mottershaw Photography xx

“Rose, I’m so sorry it’s taken so long to say thank you- I came straight back from Honeymoon and started a new job the next day. It’s been a crazy busy few months!!
Soooo THANK YOU SO MUCH!! The cake was absolutely delicious!! The comments from people were amazing and so many people asked me to pass on their praise. The cake was so simple and elegant which was exactly what we wanted. I’ve attached some pictures along side our pork pie cake too!!
We had the most amazing day and you contributed to this by being so brilliant. I therefore had no problems with filling in your competition form with the most amazing feeback you’ve ever seen!! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you- there’s nobody more deserving.
Thank you again. I’m passing on your details to everybody & anybody, hope this is ok!”

Elegant Lace and Pearl Wedding Cake

Good evening cake lovers! Happy Wednesday!.. If tonight’s beautiful cake photo share from the lovely Jenna and Matt’s wedding at Ringwood Hall Hotellast Saturday doesn’t get you over ‘hump day’ then nothing will!

I always absolutely love how elegant, timelessly sophisticated and stunning an all in ivory wedding cake looks and this beautiful cake design that Jenna, Matt and I came up with for their wedding on Saturday is no exception.

3 tiers in my classic Lace and Pearls design, with a side posy of ivory sugar roses and filler flowers, a large ivory bow with a diamante and pearl brooch to the side and a sparkly diamante and pearl “M&J” topper that the couple can keep. (They did actually have a navy ribbon around the board to tie in the bridesmaids colours, but I only clocked that on their notes after I’d taken the photos! A lovely subtle nod to the colour scheme without detracting from the design)

Tiers of salted caramel, chocolate mud and madagascan vanilla.

Can’t wait to see the professional shots from the day, cutting of the cake and Jenna’s beautiful dress from my buddies at Gracie Bleu Bridal xx

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
