Victorian Wedding Cakes

Hall of Cakes specialise in Victorian wedding cakes.  Wedding cakes that are splendid in every way and which boast the most incredible amount of detail.

When Hall of Cakes was set up (by myself, Nicola Hall) it was with a view to doing something quite special.  We do of course make wedding cakes of all shapes and sizes but when we set out we really wanted do something unique.

Instead of finding every modern way to cut corners we went back to the traditional methods of sugar craft and flower making – very time consuming (to say the least!) but incredibly beautiful and I am now proud to say we have become renowned throughout the UK as the leaders in Victorian wedding cakes.

Couples come to us from all over the country and our cakes (from our base in South East London) have travelled to Manchester, Newcastle and beyond…  We have been commissioned by various TV companies and one of our most amazing Victorian Wedding Cakes to date is soon to appear on a very Victorian drama in March 2016..

London City Wedding Cakes!

We are delighted to be able to blog the lovely wedding of Fay and Paul at Stationers Hall in the City of London back in September this year.  These images are courtesy of London photographer Kris Life Photos and we are incredibly grateful to Kris for sharing them with us.

As you will see, Fay and Paul opted for a small cake – well, small when compared to lots of the cakes we have done this year!  But, it was more that sufficient for their guests and exactly what they wanted.

Fay and mum came to see us a couple of months before the wedding and they were possibly two of the nicest people we have met this year.  Neither of them wanted anything too big, too overstated, too fussy, just a lovely cake, big enough for their numbers and traditional in style and flavour.

We just love delivering to the old London venues.  So much character and charm – not to mention the amazing history that is enjoyed by these event spaces.  Oh and, I have to admit that the City is just a wee bit easier than the West End from a traffic point of view – so another bonus point!  This is just one of the fabulous venues managed by ITA Venues who have an extensive portfolio of event spaces throughout London.

I am sure you will agree that Fay looks absolutely amazing in her dress. So elegant and sophisticated…

Thanks again to Kris Life Photos!
