Wedding Cakes at Middle Temple

We are delighted to have become a recommended supplier for the (quite unbelievable) venue that is Middle Temple.

Middle Temple is one of the four ancient Inns of Court in London – built between 1562 and 1573.  Middle Temple lies along the embankment, minutes from Fleet Street and also Temple tube.

What is truly staggering about this venue is that it remains virtually unchanged since it was built.  Surviving two world wars and the Great Fire of London.. The history of this building is captivating and the interior totally jaw dropping. We cannot wait to deliver to this venue and feel very privileged to be affiliated with one of London’s most high profile historic settings.

We make cakes of all shapes and sizes but we do feel our Victorian Wedding Cakes will be very fitting for weddings at this venue and will sit perfectly in this setting.

The events team at Middle Temple are also a pleasure to deal with so we are very much looking forward to working with Lorraine, Pauline, Carlotta and Sophie over the coming months.

Gold Wedding Cakes!

We are taking so many bookings for 2016 and what I am seeing so far is that ‘gold’ is still going to be very popular in 2016.

We have designed and created some beautiful wedding cakes including anything from minimum gold detail, to entire tiers being covered in gold leaf.

The feature image you see here is a wonderful showcase of ‘gold leaf’.  Gold leaf is incomparable in terms of visual and it’s application creates the most incredible centrepiece – whether you want your cake to be centre stage or not!

When brides ask me how Gold leaf looks  ‘for real’ i always describe it as similar to C-3PO from Star Wars!  Maybe not very ‘wedding’ related but mentioning this character always seem to give a very clear visual!

Another way of applying gold to your wedding cake is by hand painting.  The other images you see here all include details that have been hand painted in various shades of gold – in the case of the seven tier (white and gold) a whole tier has been painted – which, I am sure you will agree, looks beautiful.

If you wish to include gold in your wedding cake – don’t be afraid of it being ‘too much’. The more the better in my opinion!  Gold flowers, Gold tiers, Gold bows…. it looks fabulous…
