Beautiful Wedding Cakes for 2015

We have so many lovely weddings booked in for 2015 and we are still receiving lots of new enquiries every day.

The trends for this year seem to be lots (and I mean seriously lots!) of frills and ruffles, mixed with some gorgeous vintage shades of pinks, champagnes and minks.  We are also doing lots of ‘silver’ tiers this year – beautiful edible silver leaf detail which gives amazing contrast to frills and other more intricately decorated tiers.

We are also seeing the return of sugar flowers. Tons of them!  Our team have a combined experience of over 40 years in making sugar flowers and we are therefore very excited with some of the commissions we have this year.  Beautiful trailing cascades of sugar roses, hydrangeas, peonies and many many more lovely blossoms

Amazing Wedding Cakes

Amazing wedding cakes is what we do.  Whilst we can – and do – produce cakes of all different shapes and sizes, we have gained quite a reputation for our amazing centre piece wedding cakes.

A lot of couples come to us because they want something really grand.  We have had the privilege of working on some amazing projects and have designed so many different cakes in the last 7 years.

At Hall of Cakes we do not produce hundreds of cakes every year – in fact we only commission up to around 30 wedding cakes each year.  But the cakes we produce are often worked on for weeks and weeks in advance – making flowers and blossoms and petals.. which are then applied to the cake during the week leading up to the big day.

Below are just a few of the cakes Hall of Cakes have designed and created in the last couple of years – but lots of exiting cakes booked in for this year!

Traditional Wedding Cakes

Hall of Cakes have become renowned for their traditional wedding cakes.  Cakes adorned with beautiful intricate piping, designed and executed with precision technique.

Whilst Hall of Cakes can design and make cakes of any style and size they are often selected by clients  who want something more traditional – all white wedding cakes that  often resemble the wedding cakes of Victorian times.

Going back a few hundred years, the first wedding cakes were known as ‘brides cakes’ or ‘brides’ pies’ and were often made with bread or as pies for the bride to cut into with the assistance of her groom.  The more ornate wedding cakes that we know of today – traditional all white tiered cakes – didn’t really come about until Victorian times in the late 19th century.

Whilst many brides now want chocolate cakes, wonky cakes, themed cakes… it really is only the true professionals in cake making that are able to design and produce beautiful traditional wedding cakes
