One Shade of Grey at Botleys – More Pics!

We are delighted that we are able to feature a few more images of this wedding – thanks to the generosity of Alan Harbord Photography    If you visit Alan’s website you will see many more images under ‘Botley’s Mansion at the bottom of the home page.

So chuffed to have got a few more pics of Kayleigh and Matt on their day. Particularly after seeing Kayleigh on the morning – dare I say it… a wee bit stressed. Kayleigh was also ‘pre’ hair and make up while we were setting up the cake so just wonderful to see how stunning she looked after she was whisked off up that beautiful staircase.

This is definitely our fave cake of this year so far.  Grey is my absolute favourite colour and we were so pleased that Kayleigh was brave enough to go with this as her base colour.  We can see from the pics how lovely the grey was as a theme colour – seeing the bridesmaids and the grooms party…

Kayleigh and Matts’ cake was a multitude of flavours and buttercreams – vanilla, chocolate, lemon carrot…  We had a lovely email for Kayleigh saying how much their cake was devoured and photographed by all.

Thank you so much Alan for sharing these images and we hope our paths cross again in the future.

Naked Wedding Cake! – At Preston Court, Kent

This is the ‘naked’ wedding cake we made for Charlotte and Luke at the beginning of September this year.

To be honest, the is the first naked wedding cake we have actually made.  We have made them for celebrations and parties previously, but not actually for a wedding.

Charlotte and Luke were going ‘vintage country fair’ all the way for their wedding, so no surprise that they selected Preston Court as their venue.  We have delivered to this venue a few times before and it really is magical.  Complete with a carousel and wandering peacocks it us very charming indeed.

All three tiers of this cake are vanilla sponge and as you can see it is oozing with vanilla bean buttercream and raspberry jam.  We are told it was enjoyed by all….

The images featured here are the work of MarIanne Taylor Photography.


One shade of grey at Botleys Mansion

This is the wedding cake we delivered to Botleys Mansion on 13th September for the wedding of Kayleigh & Matt.

When Kayleigh came to see us a year ago with her mum and sister she was quite undecided as to the colour she wanted (as the base colour for her cake) but she was certain about one thing – that her wedding cake had to big!

Kayleigh loved our Latte Frills design we did at Leeds Castle last year and whilst she wanted something different, she did want to include the beautiful ruffle detail.

Kayleigh ummed and arrrred for a while over whether to have the latte/champagne colour as the base and then finally a month before the wedding it fell into place – Grey!

You can’t actually see too well from the image here, but we also added a sheen spray to give the slight appearance of silver.  But, grey or silver, we were so pleased with the finished result.

As you can see, we also added a ball of ruffles to the top tier to give the cake even more height.  We are pleased to say that Kayleigh and Matt were as delighted with the their cake as we were….
