Cutting the Cake

I love the tradition of cake cutting – it’s your wedding cake’s big moment in the spotlight! Here are some of my gorgeous couples taking that first slice, and seeing the delicious layers inside for the first time.

The edible lace on this middle tier adds such a gorgeous texture, and I recreated Katie and Bradley’s monogram that appeared on their stationery as a finishing touch.

Dale and James opted for a towering and dramatic cake in blush, white and gold. I love when the cutting of the cake is done with fanfare, and Dale and James really did give their cake centre stage.

Lots of love went into making the cake for the fabulous Katie and Nick. The second tier was hand-painted to look like William Morris wallpaper, in a pattern that was inspired by the couple’s invitations.

Gaynes Park, Epping, Essex

This was such an exciting commission – no novelty but a nod to a theme with the seashells. Carly and Ash met in Ibiza so I handpainted the words “Established: Ibiza 2012” for a personalised touch on this five tier showstopper.

I knew I was going to get along with this goregous couple when they sat down to their consultation and told me “we would like double sized portions, please: our families love cake”! I was doubly honoured to make Rosie’s beautiful baby shower dessert table last year.

As soon as we saw Lauren’s instagram page we knew we wanted her to create our wedding cake... and we were right! Right from the initial consultation and tasting of the delicious flavours (Michael’s favourite part of the wedding planning overall!) we were confident Lauren would deliver exactly what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble and  Lauren even designed us some bespoke biscuit favours that matched our stationery perfectly! We had so many comments on how delicious both the cake and facours were!
