Hever Castle – Champagne Wedding Cakes

This is the wedding cake we designed and created for Lucy & Lee for their wedding at Hever Castle in Kent on Saturday.

When Lucy came to see us we discussed a cake she had seen on our website that we produced last year for a wedding at the Park Lane Hotel in London.  Lucy wanted us to create something similar but in her chosen colour of champagne and  and also by adding a delicate, but traditional piping pattern to give the cake the required texture.

A cake like this can only be produced by working in partnership with an experienced, quality florist.  Lucy had selected Isis Flowers of Petts Wood, Kent and I am so pleased that she did!

With a cake such as this, Its not just about putting it together on the day, but working with the florist prior to the event and them having an exact understanding of what is required.  The team at Isis were absolutely fantastic to work with and I cannot recommend them enough.  Professional, experienced, knowledgable and the icing on the cake… beautiful, fresh quality flowers that looked absolutely stunning.  Thank you Isis.   We would not have achieved this without you.

Congratulations Lucy and Lee.  We hope you had the most fantastic day and we wish you all the best for the future.

Jade came to us with very specific ideas of what she wanted.  A plain white cake, edged with rose gold mouldings and she wanted us to create sugar bouquets of her chose flowers: –  lilac “Ocean Song” roses, peach “Juliet” roses, peach sweet pea and white bouvardia.

Jade and John cake was a beautiful combination of flavours and fillings: – pink champagne with champagne buttercream, rich chocolate sponge with white chocolate buttercream and vanilla sponge with vanilla bean buttercream and raspberry jam

We were so pleased with this cake and absolutely love the colour combinations..

Hever is one of our favourite Kent venues and it continues to be a honour to work for such an iconic venue.
